MILAN - 3 nights

After touching down in Milan, we’ll whisk you to the chic, couture-central Bulgari hotel. Originally an 18th century palazzo, its sleek, contemporary rooms will provide the perfect blank canvas for your armfuls of designer goodies, and after a day of shopping you’ve got the spa and courtyard gardens to relax in. First things first though: hit the designer mecca of Quadrilatero d’Oro, which is right on your doorstep. Here you can pick up the latest ‘it bag,’ have a suit tailored, and feel like you’ve stepped into a shoot for Italian Vogue. Alternatively, if you’re on the hunt for some classics, we can direct you towards the designer outlets and second-hand stores where you can pick up beautiful Italian leather items. Opt for a personal shopping experience to guide you on the latest trends and help you find the perfect styles and colour combinations. On top of high fashion, Milan is also home to exquisite Renaissance art and architecture. Don’t miss Da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper,’ and for a dose of history gaze up at the glass ceilings of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele arcade, which is one of the oldest in the world.

Venture inland and follow the walking trails like Via Crucis, leading you to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso. You’ll stay at Villa D’este, whose amazing pool jutting right out into the water makes for the perfect catwalk for flaunting your new acquisitions. Right beside Lake Como, and with views over the glittering waters, this 16th century palazzo has built up many celebrity and royal devotees over the years, and is definitely the place to see and be seen.
