Aperitifs and fashion shows. Wine bars and old world elegance. Milan is a city that shines brightly in its own unique, demure manner. Walk the streets armed with a 'cornetto' pastry or artisanal gelato in a flavour like baked ricotta cheese with citrus or Sicilian brioche, allowing the city to reveal itself layer by layer. Admire Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper, at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, and admire the bohemian street art spirit of the district known as Isola. The Royal Palace of Milan, Pinacoteca di Brera, and elegant Sforza Castle will all need to be on the Milan to-do list, as will the presentation of ethnography housed at MUDEC museum of culture. When all this is done you may be left tired and weary, but that is nothing that a bout of spa time at GQ Terme can't fix. Here you can enjoy a wellness buffet and Ayurvedic massage before jumping into their bio-sauna that sits built within a historic yellow tram - pure bliss and history all at once. Timing your visit with Festival Latino Americano or the The Milan Jazz Festival will allow you to uncover a livelier side of the city. But nothing will get you closer to its spirit than an early-evening aperitivo of Prosecco and prosciutto - pure Milanese culinary goodness and an integral part of your Milan travels. And let's not forget opera at Teatro alla Scala served after a few classy Aperol Spritz.
