Do some cultural sightseeing at Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Milan: Parco Faunistico Le Cornelle (in Valbrembo), Melissa Beach (in Golasecca) and Villa Reale (in Monza). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Pinacoteca di Brera, steep yourself in history at Castello Sforzesco, see where the action happens at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro), and take an in-depth tour of Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio.
