Between May and October 2015, the city of Milan is anticipating the arrival of some 20 million visitors to the universal mega exhibition, Expo Milano 2015. During this time, Milan will become a global show case for international organisations involved in sharing ideas and solutions on the theme of food, diet and sustainability, offering its visitors the opportunity to explore the gastronomic traditions of 140 countries and taste the world’s best dishes.
Combine a visit to Expo Milano 2015 with a few days in the city, feasting on masterpieces by Canaletto and Caravaggio and window-shopping on the famous Via della Spiga and Via Montenapoleone. Punctuate your day with cappuccino breaks at the chic Caffè Baglioni and end it with a night at the opera at La Scala.
Take advantage of Milan’s central location and explore beyond the city, visiting the villages, castles and abbeys in the provinces of Cremona and Mantua, or twinning a short-break in Milan with a few nights in Verona or on the shores of Lake Garda.
Top spot for a city break in Milan is the Hotel Spadari al Duomo, just a few steps from the Duomo and in the heart of the city’s fashion and shopping district. ExpertoItaly are authorised sellers of tickets to Expo Milano 2015.
