What’s Included

Direct flights to Milan from Edinburgh International

Four stay hotel

Italy’s fashion capital destination

Three night stay

Fashionistas and football fans alike recognise the allure of Milan.

No wonder the stunning northern Italian city is such a popular city break destination for those wishing to pay homage to the San Siro or Dolce & Gabbana.

And if fashion or footie fail to fascinate, well there’s always the opera, the architecture, the food…

Today’s Big Deal, courtesy of the Travel Company Edinburgh, flies you to this enthralling city for a three night break in a modern hotel, offering the perfect opportunity to soak up all that rich Italian culture and heritage.

Fashion capital

The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, offers direct return flights to Milan Malpensa Airport with EasyJet from Edinburgh International, with hand luggage allowance, and three nights room only accommodation, based on two sharing a standard room, at the four star Ih Hotels Milano Gioia.

Flight dates

The city breaks are for three nights, flying out from Edinburgh International airport. The departure dates are the following:

11th, 14th January

1st, 24th, 25th February

2nd, 7th, 11th March

Four star hotel

Ih Hotels Milano Gioia is a stylish four star hotel situated five km from Milan’s city centre and a fifteen minute walk from Istria metro station. Its rooms are fitted with free Wi-Fi, cable TV with on-demand movies, a safe, coffee/tea makers and a personal computer.

The hotel also has a bar and restaurant which serves Italian specialities. 

Milan highlights

The Milanese regard their city as the industrious and creative capital of Italy and they have a case. It’s a city that offers a graceful combination of the historic and ultra-modern.

Fashionistas will congregate in the Quadrilatero square and the Via Montenapoleone, where the boutiques represent most of the major fashion houses. Vogue rates it as the most important fashion district in the world, but check your credit card limit before deciding to splurge on that to-die-for dress.

Less worldly glory is on display in the refectory attached to the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the site of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper fresco. Admission tickets are hard to come by, and you only get 15 minutes in the presence of the masterpiece, but it’s an unforgettable experience.

Milan’s Duomo, the 16th century cathedral, dominates the old city. Climb the steps or take the lift to the roof for spectacular views that can reach as far as the Alps on a clear day.

Milan’s other cathedral is the San Siro stadium, home of the rival clubs AC Milan and Internazionale. If you can’t catch a match, take the stadium tour and visit the museum.
