Dear Friends,
Yes, it's true, Milan is deserted in August. Not even the post-pandemic Revenge Tourism surge can keep business owners from closing their shutters. No matter where you are going in Italy, August 15th is a national holiday and if you haven't yet booked accommodation, you may be out of luck!  In this issue of the newsletter, I share some FAQS, a style guide on Italian Shoes for Men, travel tips and a great private tour of the lakes region.
Feel free to browse the site or request a custom itinerary for your next Milan & Lake Como trip.
Safe travels,
