Fix the cufflinks and ready your finest threads, the fashion capital of the world is what awaits those who bag cheap flights to Milan from Australia. The route isn't a short one at around 22-25 hours from Sydney and Melbourne, but boy is it worth it. After touching down, you can stalk grand shopping arcades where Gucci and Prada occupy the spaces. You can glimpse the priceless relics of one Leonardo da Vinci (The Last Supper resides in the recesses of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan). You can walk between Gothic buttresses on the rooftops of medieval cathedrals. And that's just scratching the surface…
The marble spires of this majestic church strike through the heart of the city. Lucky visitors might even be able to get tickets to walk on the roof!
Calling all fashionistas – Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is the the place to be in Milan. Under regal arcades, you'll find all the haute shopping you could want.
Take a break from the fashion shopping by heading up to Lake Como. There, romantic Italian villages nestle by glistening waters in the Alps.
