With so many beautiful Italian city breaks to choose from, your biggest holiday challenge will be deciding where to go and what to do!

A popular choice for fashionistas and football fans alike, a city break to Italy’s second largest city, Milan, offers something for everyone. Whilst more modern than the ancient cities of Rome and Venice, Milan has plenty of historical sites to discover, including the majestic gothic Duomo di Milano – a cathedral that took nearly six centuries to complete and stands as the largest in the country. Culture vultures can head to the world-renowned opera house, La Scala, whilst art lovers can marvel in the beauty of one of the most famous paintings of all time – Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. Football fans should try to catch AC Milan at home for an unforgettable sporting experience.

Home to some of the biggest fashion houses in the industry, Milan is a fashion-lover’s dream destination. Head to the Quadrilatero d’Oro – the “Rectangle of Gold” – for some high-end retail therapy, or window-shop ‘til you drop. And if your budget’s a little more low-end than high-end, there are plenty of designer outlets across the city where last season’s pieces can be picked up at rock bottom prices. Head to Il Salvagente or DMagazine Outlet for the best selection of clothing and deals.

With cheap flights to destinations across Italy now available through Monarch, your perfect Italian city break has never been so affordable.
