Start your first day in Milan, not with shopping, but a trip to the Pinacoteca di Brera, a museum found inside the Brera Palace. The museum houses a collection of masterpieces by Piero della Francesca, Giovanni Bellini, Mantegna, Raphael, Tintoretto and Caravaggio. Visit the church of San Marco and explore the surrounding area of the museum where you can find galleries and bars frequented by artists and students.
In the afternoon, get a panoramic view of the city as you spend one hour on a walking tour to visit The Scala, Duomo and the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery. View "The Last Supper", the world-famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci, located near the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie.
