THINGS TO DO IN MILAN IN ONE DAY

Often, you end up visiting big cities only briefly – for a flight connection, a stopover enroute to another destination, or by choice. That’s what we did when we decided to spend 12 hours in Milan.

When you don’t have long in a city you have two options: pass your time wandering aimlessly, or make it unforgettable – and make the short hours you have feel like days.

Milan. Art, culture, food, fashion, finance, history. What’s the best way to expand the time we’ve got? The secret is in the intensity you give to the hours you have. The people you meet, the things you discover, and how you immerse yourself in the stories that surround you.

It’s the only way to change your perception of time, and feel thehours magically transforming themselves into days.

DAY 2
Milan Lake Maggiore Milan – 280 km

THINGS TO DO AROUND LAKE MAGGIORE IN ONE DAY

180 million years ago, in the Triassic era, Italy was submerged under the Tethys Ocean, and situated close to the equator.

This shallow and tropical sea had warm, crystal clear waters, with islands and coral reefs occasionally breaking its surface.

As time passed, the waters started to recede. Ice ages came one after the other, and the rising land was carved and shaped by glaciers.

So here we are, 180 million years later, looking at a place where there was once a tropical sea. We’re at Lake Maggiore.

Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, its waters reach depths of 370 metres, and it’s surrounded on all sides by ancient woodlands, scented vegetation, rocks, stony beaches, houses, castles and magnificent gardens.

We want to travel the entire length of its coast. At 170km long, it crosses the borders of Italy and Switzerland, and it’s full of myths, legends, hidden places and hints of its incredible past.
