From the Shopping Experience to team building activities and from the “Fashion Dinners” to the Spa at the lake, it is a unique and not to be missed opportunity to experience Italy and savour its famous wine and food heritage.

1st DAY – MILAN
Morning

Upon their arrival in Milan, at the airport or the train station, the guests will be welcomed by a dedicated service staff and will be taken, either by Deluxe bus with driver or by a private car with driver, to the Hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel, exclusive dedicated check-in and welcome cocktails.

Lunch
Lunch at selected restaurant, a veritable paradise for gourmets, offering a breathtaking view of the Duomo’s rooftop with its countless spires.

Afternoon
Shopping Experience: an afternoon dedicated entirely to satisfying the guests’ shopping mania. They will be accompanied on a personalised, exclusive itinerary by an expert consultant who can guide them through the secretes of the celebrated “quadrilateral of fashion”: an irresistible attraction for those seeking to learn all there is to know about the latest novelties and trends in terms of clothing, jewels, bijoux, beauty products, as well as furnishings, books, CDs and DVDs.
This will be followed by the original and entertaining Team Building experience: Fashion Addicted. No longer mere spectators, but protagonists of the world of haute couture. The guests will form various teams, each of which will become a «Maison» where each participant plays a specific role: such as model designer, tailor, creative director, member of the technical staff. They will work with materials of all kinds, some of them very original, to create personalised collections leading to an exciting conclusion on the catwalk.

Evening
Dinner at selected restaurant that offer a full immersion in the cooking traditions of Italy, and those of Sicily in particular, enriched with an international touch, and served in a captivating “Dolce vita” atmosphere. At the end, return to the hotel and overnight stay.

2nd DAY – MILAN
Morning

After breakfast at the hotel in a reserved area, the morning will be dedicated to «Unusual MILAN». An original itinerary encompassing the most suggestive corners of the city and making use of a classical old-time Milan streetcar, with its unmistakable design, booked and reserved for exclusive use by the tour participants. The vehicles making up the streetcar may be personalised with a company logo, and the interior may be furnished with cushions, aisle carpets and curtains. It is also possible to arrange an onboard catering service, for a cocktail, or even for a dinner.

Lunch
Lunch at selected restaurant a few steps from Piazza Duomo. This establishment is celebrated for the extreme care that goes into the selection of the raw materials, which are purchased from highly qualified suppliers, and the attention devoted by its chefs to the preparation of the dishes. Very rich is the wine list.

Afternoon
The afternoon begins with a top-notch cultural itinerary: accompanied by an art expert, the guests will visit two major museums: the New Museum of the Cathedral and the Museum of the 20th Century. The former makes it possible to admire the precious artwork stored in the Duomo of Milan; inaugurated in December 2010, the latter is a thrilling excursus through the history of 20th century Italian painting and sculpture.
This is followed by a more frivolous but equally exciting shopping tour. The destination is The Mall Excelsior, a stunning seven-story high shopping centre that rises in the historic Galleria del Corso building, which used to house the Excelsior movie theatre, one of Milan’s best known cinemas of yesteryear, where films were shown on first release. Restructured by Jean Nouvel, the building is an authentic kaleidoscope of dazzling visual effects, with escalators and elevators that seem to float in the air.
