Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Once the meeting wraps and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwatering Italian meal in these three cities.
When in Milan if you find yourself in or near Milan for busi- ness, don’t journey home as soon as business is over. Why not visit the Leonardo da Vinci Home or view the world-famous “The Last Supper”? Or perhaps you’d prefer to play a round of golf on Lake Como before enjoying an opera performance at La Scala. The options are endless in Milan once the work day is over.
When in Turin when you finish your business in or near Turin, don’t rush back to the airport. You’re in Turin, so why not visit the Egyptian Museum or the Moving Image Museum? Or, be different and spend a day sipping Italy’s best wines at Le Langhe, truffle hunting in Alba or hitting the slopes and skiing the Alps. Whatever your pleasure, indulge it in Torino.
When in Genoa stay awhile. Even though business is done, there’s more to see in Genoa. Kick back for a few more days; after all, why not visit Italy’s largest aquarium, or delve deeper into the heart and history of the city with a visit to the ancient and spectacular city center. You can wrap up your stay in Italy with a visit to Santa Margherita or Portofino. With the important meetings out of the way, Genoa is your oyster.

Traveling is an opportunity to expand your horizons and try things you’ve never experienced before. But when it comes to public transportation, you might want to give it a hard pass. I’m all for public buses and subways, but it’s not always practical, depending on your destination of choice. Public transportation can also take up more time and resources than is realistic for a short excursion. But there are plenty of other ways to explore on vacation without relying on public infrastructure. From biking to ferries, here’s where to look first.
