The visitor is spoilt for choice from among hundreds of works kept in locations which have centuries-old charm.
Music, in particular, Opera and the ballet, represent a further and decisive attraction for enthusiasts throughout the world, thanks to the events featured at the La Scala Opera House, the live shows and the concerts.
And in addition, Milan is synonymous of good food. A cuisine based on research, research to find the best ingredients, intelligent fusions with the best European cuisines. Italian tradition is intensified by a constant attention to new ideas.

In addition, Istituto Auxologico Italiano has two centres on Lake Maggiore, between Stresa and Verbania, in an area where man has learned how to respect nature, and if possible, enhance the fascination of a striking landscape.
Each year thousands of tourists visit the Borromeo Gulf to breathe the romantic atmosphere and to visit the refined villas which adorn the lakefront.
The town of Stresa overlooks a portion of the lake where the Borromee Islands are located (“Isola Bella”, “Isola Madre” and “Isola dei Pescatori”): this is the ideal context for a relaxing and pleasant holiday.
Verbania is a well-known tourist centre, situated between the lake and the surrounding hills, the Verbania area is adorned with small villages characterised by the panoramic view over the Borromeo Gulf.
