Milan is more than just a place for fashionistas or football fans – there's a historic side to the city beyond its cool, cosmopolitan and chic exterior.

To end the tour, you'll pass by the spectacular cathedral, the Duomo, and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade.

This half-day tour whisks you away to two of three Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore.

You'll be able to wander among its tiered, narrow alleys lined with plant-bedecked houses. Then, it's off to Isola Bella, which means ‘Beautiful Island'. And it's got a showstopper of a baroque palace as well as tiered Italianate gardens, inspired by the hanging gardens of Babylon. The shell-encrusted grottoes on the lower floor are well worth a look, too.
