Milan is like an espresso for the soul. From the Gothic Duomo to the canals of the Navigli District, the city swells with ornate architecture, pure Italian pizza, and speedy sports cars. Here's how to spend three days in this Lombardy metropolis.

Day 1: Experience the Art and Culture
Witnessing Milan's rich culture of art and history is a great way to start your trip. Get oriented with a hop-on, hop-off bus, or get your bearings from the rooftop terrace of the famous Duomo. Then head to 14th-century Castello Sforzesco before devoting your afternoon to art. Visit Da Vinci's Last Supper, a masterpiece that is rapidly fading—book your ticket and move it to the top of your travel list. Stop by one of the many bars to sip an aperitivo at sunset and snack upon olives and cheeses before the opera at La Scala.

Day 2: Shop 'til You Drop
Milan is a world center for glamour. Tour the design ateliers and showrooms for inspiration, then visit the designer outlets to outfit yourself in Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, and Versace for a fraction the retail cost. Head for the Fashion Quadrilatero, the crisscrossing streets with the big fashion labels, and be sure to visit Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, a four-level, glass-vaulted shopping arcade dating from 1870. You'll find a number of cafes and restaurants, plus Prada's original store.

Day 3: Take a Day Trip
Milan sits in the middle of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Visit the playground of the rich and famous at Lake Como, or take a day trip to popular Venice, historic Verona, or the delightful fishing villages of Cinque Terre. Some choose to spend an afternoon exploring Bergamo or riding the Bernina Express railway line through the Swiss Alps to luxurious St. Moritz.
