A whole load of low cost ideas for experiencing Milan and the surrounding area
The site is adding a special “Low Cost” section: a series of offers to help you experience the region at truly low prices.
The new pages offer suggestions for organising a “low cost” cultural visit: from monuments offering free or discounted entry for some age groups, to museums which, by offering combined tickets, enable visitors to see several places at prices ranging from €7 to €15. And if you’re interested in finding out more about Milan, there are guided tours around the city and the surrounding area from €0 to €20 and opportunities to get a bird’s eye view of the city from €0 to €4.
There are many opportunities to visit the beautiful museums and see the wonderful art and architecture of our province with costs for all budgets. The offers include: a Sunday in Trezzo sull’Adda for € 4.00, visiting the Taccani hydroelectric power station, a splendid example of Art Nouveau architecture which blends in perfectly with the natural scenery surrounding it; a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Cinisello Balsamo, hosted at the magnificent Villa Ghirlanda, where entry is completely free of charge. Ideas and suggestions also include visits to company museums and historical archives scattered across the region: these are often little-known places where Italian ingeniousness and enterprise are on display, and where entry is free of charge.
The offers also include a pleasant evening, such as visiting an exhibition in a prestigious location with a pre-dinner drink at just €13.
The section will also feature special offers for families, grandparents with grandchildren in tow and the elderly. For children, there is a calendar of play and recreational activities from €5 to €8, for a day of fun without weighing too much on the family budget.
The new section is designed to invite visitors to choose Milan as their destination, showing that our region has a wide range of tourist and cultural activities with an equally wide range of prices.
In the events section, the editors have selected more than 50 totally free or low cost high-quality events, scheduled up until 8 January: many exhibitions, nativity scenes, church concerts and workshops for children.
This is also an invaluable guide for people from Milan looking for suggestions on how to spend the festive period with one eye on the family budget.
