With its progressive ideals and its focus on efficiency and pragmatism, Milan more closely resembles its northern European counterparts than a Mediterranean metropolis, according to historian and art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon. While Rome stands strong as Italy’s national capital, Milan remains the country’s main economic and financial hub. Although Milan was founded more than two thousand years ago, it was only during the late Medieval period that this crossroads city really took off, particularly with the construction of the Duomo. The cathedral’s construction spanned centuries and drew upon the expertise of some of the age’s most distinguished intellectuals, engineers, designers and mathematicians. In a manner perhaps reflective of the avant-garde spirit of the Lombardi, Milan was then, as it is now, an important symbol of Italian industrial and cultural development. As the cradle of the Futurist movement, initiated by the poet and lecturer Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Milan came to embody early twentieth-century modernists’ aspirations for the Bel Pease. More well-known nowadays as a mecca for both style and fashion, it is unsurprising that design and engineering have also played such a fundamental role in the city’s development.

Not only does Modena offer history, beautiful landscapes, great food and mouth-watering flavours, but the city and its suburbs are also the heart of what’s come to be known as Motor Valley.

But that’s not all.
Forget about the Pantheon and the Roman Forum. If you are visiting Rome for the second or even the third time, you may want to discover a bit of the real Roman way of life. That’s exactly what I did on last Easter break when I was invited to the eternal city by a Roman friend of mine.
If you’re visiting Rome for more than just 2 or 3 days, then you may want to consider jazzing up your stay by spending a day out of the Eternal City. In fact, during the warmer months of June, July and August, a day far from the heat, the traffic and the crowds, can be exactly what you need to enjoy Rome even more afterwards. There are a number of beautiful, fairy tale-like, destinations just a short car or train ride from the capital; we’ll explore three of them.
