Optional Pre-Nice Trip Extension to Milan

November 4 - 9, 2020

Milan is Italy’s high-powered financial, industrial and fashion capital, home to the country’s stock exchange and most famous fashion houses, as well as two international football teams.  In recent years Milan has seen a rebirth with public spaces restored to their original glory and the banks of the canals reclaimed by new boutiques, cafes and restaurants.  Despite the cosmopolitan atmosphere and modern flair, there is a rich history to this city of high culture just waiting to be unveiled.  Milan's magnificent Gothic Duomo is the city's most famous landmark; one of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper housed in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie; La Scala, opened its doors in 1778 and is still one of the world’s most famous opera houses; Sforzesco Castle, one of the largest fortresses in Europe, is now home to seven of Milan's most prestigious museums; Canals of the Navigli District have been transformed into a trendy hot-spot for young and old alike, with restaurants, boutiques, galleries and moored barges that are now floating bars.  Lastly, Milan remains one of the best places in the world for high-fashion, designer shopping.

Accommodations

Spend 4 nights at the beautiful and luxurious 5-star Four Seasons Hotel Milano. The hotel is located in a 15th century convent,  and thanks to its cloistered, garden courtyard, it is an oasis within Milan's city center.  Perfectly located in the fashion district, it is also just a few minutes walk to the Duomo and Teatro all Scala.

Airfare

We've arranged for a group flight that covers both the Milan and Nice portions of the trip. It will be on Air France, departing and returning to Dulles. The cost of the flight is already built in to the with-airfare package cost for Nice: the price below is for the hotel and other amenities in Milan.

If you choose to make your own travel arrangements, register for the Nice trip at the "without airfare" price at a savings. However, you'll receive no additional credit in the package price listed below.

We will be happy to explore flight options on an individual basis from Richmond, Norfolk, or other hometown cities. Please indicate on the reservation form whether you would like to consider options other than Dulles.
