Milan is without a doubt the most exciting city in Italy. Famous for its cutting-edge fashion and architectural designers, it is also a good place to enjoy everything the country is known for – and it is just a 4 hour drive away from Nice! If you only have a couple of days off work and you feel like getting away from the Riviera, Milan is the first destination you should consider.
