Tours & Events in Milan

Milan is an excellent base from which to explore the many Napoleonic battlefields in the region.

It was seized in 1799 by Russia's Marshal Suvarov following several victories over the armies of France, notably at Magnano and Cassano.

In 1800 it was the initial reorganisation point for the French army which had just crossed over the alpine passes and arrived - with Napoleon Bonaparte at its head - to thwart Austrian moves in northern Italy.

Milan is known for its fashion, cuisine, opera, the world's fourth-largest church, a renaissance castle and Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper fresco. For opera buffs La Scala will be the drawcard and there are many fine museums and galleries.
