In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Alimentari Da Caio. Relax by the water at Spiaggia Tranquilla and Riva Bianca Beach. Step out of Milan to go to Dervio and see Chiesa di S. Tommaso Becket, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, contemplate the long history of Castello Sforzesco, enjoy some music at La Casa Maledetta, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza del Duomo.

Beirut, Lebanon to Milan is an approximately 6.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or drive. The time zone changes from Eastern European Standard Time to Central European Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Beirut in June since evenings lows in Milan dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to take a train to Cinque Terre.
