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.
Bring the kids along to Duomo di Milano and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Villa del Balbianello and Bastard Store. Explore Milan's surroundings by going to Como (Dep Design Store, Tea World, &more), Bellagio (Profumeria Bellagio, Bellagioseta, &more) and Chiesa di San Giorgio (in Varenna). There's still lots to do: stop by Supergulp.

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Step off the beaten path and head to Pitti Palace and Complesso Museale Santa Maria della Scala. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella and Siena Tartufi (truffle hunting). Get out of town with these interesting Florence side-trips: Siena (Palazzo Pubblico and Museo Civico & Duomo di Siena). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, don't miss a visit to Piazza della Signoria, look for gifts at Davide Cerasi Leather Boutique, and admire the masterpieces at Gallerie Degli Uffizi.
