Benvenuti a Milano, the capital of fine dining, fashion and art. Your first stop will be one of the most meaningful and memorable of your trip: a private visit to the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where you will gaze upon Leonardo da Vinci’s immortal painting, the Last Supper. After dinner at the Michelin Two-starred restaurant, Seta, you will enjoy a bit of R&R in preparation for your busy day tomorrow.
Day two begins with a guided visit to Fondazione Prada, an arts and culture institution created by Prada in 1993 to host art exhibitions as well as cinema, photography, philosophy, dance and architecture projects.
Men, while in the fashion mecca of Milan, you will be fitted for a custom-tailored suit at Ermenegildo Zegna, a garment that truly fits your physique and your style. Women, you will walk away in a pair of shoes designed by the celebrated René Caovilla, whose shoes and accessories are rooted in the art of Venetian shoemaking. In the evening, following an aperitivo at the lovely Voce Restaurant, you’ll feel the passion of the opera at Teatro alla Scala.
After a visit to the fashion district with your private shopper and lunch at a Michelin Three-starred restaurant, you’re off to the resort town of Riva del Garda in Trento, at the southern edge of the Italian Alps. A restorative day four will include sailing, hiking, windsurfing or spa time—then dinner with the finest sommelier in Italy, Roberto Anesi.
On day five, discover the Ferrari experience. The Chef de Cave will conduct an exclusive tasting from the private collection, and a member of the Lunelli Family will guide you through the 16th-century Villa Margon, a secret treasure immersed in the vineyards, and the extraordinary menus of the Michelin-starred restaurant, Locanda Margon.
