We travel to grow - our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise - sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique. Milan Cathedral is the largest in Europe after St. Peters, and La Scala opera house is here as well. Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper is in Milan, along with medieval palace museums, filled with art by Michelangelo, Raphael, Caravaggio and other great artists. Much, much more awaits you. This is a comprehensive guide to one of the most fascinating destinations in all of Europe. It provides everything you'll ever need to know for planning a trip to this amazing city, from places to stay and eat, and practical travel advice, to what to pack and when to go. It also features up-to-date information on all the exciting activities and adventures just waiting to be enjoyed - from exploring the fashion capital of Milan with its elegant shopping, through visiting the stunning Lakes Como and Garda with their fabulous Roman villas and beautiful vistas, to discovering the hidden treasures of the region's unforgettable palaces, churches and museums. Whatever you choose to do here, this guide will be your essential companion. &quote;I bought this after reading the author's piece on Lake Como on the GoNomad site. I wasn't disappointed - there's masses of extra information here that many other guidebooks just don't have, and all of the lakes are covered, plus day trips to nearby towns, etc. Good variety of hotel and restaurants - not just for those with big budgets. I particularly like the listing and addresses for the adventures - which include anything from diving schools, bike and boat hire thro to art courses. The book doesn't seem quite as glossy as some other titles but the content is great - and clearly written by somebody who knows the region well. Maps are good too - including Milan metro map!&quote; -- Amazon reviewer
