Milan may not be the first city on your list for a romantic getaway destination, but it's certainly got the key amorous ingredients for someone you love (or really, really like).
Take the history-steeped architecture, cosy hotels, delectable food and great wines. Sip espresso at street-side cafés and watch Italy's fashion capital's daily catwalk unfold before your very eyes. Be blown away by the vocal power and passion at the La Scala Opera. Enjoy the shopportunities to the northeast of Piazza del Duomo, where bordered by Via Monte Napoleone, Via Sant'Andrea, Via Spiga and Via Borgospesso, you'll find the so-called Quadrilatero d'Oro, home to the temples of the fashion designer gods.
And don't forget that Milan is the perfect springboard for a day trip to those luscious Italian lakes.
