Thanks to its position, the city is an ideal point of departure for other international guest destinations. It's a little over an hour by train or car to the lake Como, the lake Maggiore or to the Alps, the highest mountain peaks in Europe or to the Mediterranean Sea of Liguria. Traveling by high speed train guests can reach Turin in 45 minutes, Bologna in little over an hour, Florence in 2 hours and Rome in 3 hours. Even Verona and Venice are just a few hours away.

Staying in Milan will offer you unique opportunities for enjoyable trips amidst the natural beauties of the nearby Lombardy lakes (lake Maggiore, lake Como, lake Garda, lake Iseo) or the small cities brimming over with the artistic treasures, fabulous artisan boutiques and gourmet restaurants, and for visiting historic residences, natural areas and mountains with enchanting views.
