Often, it's the people who live in a city that make it special. In this part of Lombardy, you'll find 1,200,000 of them.
Milan isn't too far away from Zibido San Giacomo, which is situated 9 miles to the southwest. Rome, the national capital, is to be found 300 miles to the southeast.
Ebookers customers probably know this by now, but Cathedral of Milan is not to be missed. As far as iconic attractions go, it's up there with the best.
A few hours at the Spazio Oberdan or Piscina Romano Ponzio is a great chance for some quality family time. Are the kids still full of energy? Don't stop yet. Keep them busy with a visit to Aqvasport Limbiate and Acquaworld.
Taking a step into Acquario Civico is like jumping off a boat into the depths of the sea, but without needing to use a wet suit! Here you'll get up close to all sorts of fascinating marine life.
Try to keep your eyes wide open as the fearless racers thunder through the track at the Pala Kart Cinisello Balsamo. One blink at these speeds and you might miss it!
Looking for a more leisurely day of sightseeing? Then organise a trip to the Enoteca Maggiolini, where you can learn about the local winemaking process and sample a few sips.
For a lovely morning out, make the trip to the Orto Botanico di Brera or the Orto Botanico di Cascina Rosa. The wandering trails and thoughtfully sculpted garden beds are a delight to the senses.
Take some time out from your busy sightseeing itinerary and lounge around on the grass at Sempione Park and Parco delle Basiliche. Alternatively, stretch your legs and let the kids burn off some energy by taking a walk around Parco Dei Germani or Ex Campo dei Fiori.
If you're craving some downtime, look for a nice spot by the water and take in the superb surrounds of Laghetto di Giussano.
If you're looking to recharge your batteries, you'll discover heaps of nature reserves and parks to explore. Start with a deep breath of fresh air at Monte Stella or Bosco WWF di Vanzago. For those who haven't yet fully recharged, Parco Naturale Val Troncea and Parco del Ticino are two more worth visiting.
If you're in need of a couple of quiet places to collect yourself and maybe even learn a thing or two, head to the Pinacoteca di Brera and the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology. Ask about group tours or just study the eye-opening displays at your own pace. After more? Also go to the Civic Museum of Archeology and the Contemporary Arts Pavillion.
The wonderful world of science never ceases to impress. Increase your knowledge on the latest in innovation and technology at Planetario di Milano and Planetario Ulrico Hoepli. For even more mind-blowing experiences, add the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia and the Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci to your journey of discovery.
This wonderful planet of ours is teeming with all kinds of interesting objects and creatures. Uncover things that'll put your imagination to shame at the Natural Science Museum and the Civico Museo Archeologico. For more displays from the natural world, stop by the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale.
In a place that is bursting at the seams with highly regarded art exhibitions, the Modern Art Gallery and the Museo Diocesano shine brighter than the rest. You should also ask about what displays are on at the Museo Poldi Pezzoli and the Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea.
Take an eye-opening journey into yesteryear at the Collezione Branca and the Museo Mangini Bonomi. Both attractions pride themselves on making the city's rich history entertaining and relevant to visitors.
Travel back in time with a visit to Santa Maria Delle Grazie and Castello Sforzesco. They're fabulous places to get a better understanding of Milan's history. If you want more, Cimitero Monumentale di Milano and the Arco della Pace are a couple more must-visits.
For a small glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous, pay a visit to Villa Reale and Palazzo Reale. For more of the luxurious life, take in the marvellous architecture at Palazzo Marino and Palazzo dei Giureconsulti.
For a mythical escape, head over and gaze in awe at the spellbinding image of Castle Visconti San Vito and Visconti Castle. If you're looking to explore more of these fascinating cultural monuments, why not check out Castello di Cavagliano and Castello Borromeo too?
Customers with an interest in the religious heritage of the area should organise a visit to Monza Cathedral and Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio. Basilica di Sant'Eustorgio and San Bernardino alle Ossa are also significant pieces of Milan's cultural identity.
It's far better to reminisce about your life and say, "Did I really do that?," rather than, "I really wish I had done that." So, while you're here you should also check out some of the less frequented sights, such as the Ambrosian Library and the Robinie Golf Club. The Zoate Golf Club and the Golf Club Villa Paradiso are some other choices.
