In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Go for a jaunt from Milan to Bergamo to see La Citta Alta about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, browse the different shops at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and admire the masterpieces at Pinacoteca di Brera.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Milan fast, fun, and easy.

Phoenix, USA to Milan is an approximately 18-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Mountain Standard Time (MST) to Central European Time (CET), which is usually an 8 hour difference. When traveling from Phoenix in October, plan for colder days in Milan, with highs around 65°F, while nights are a bit cooler with lows around 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can catch the train to Como.
