Maybe it's not the place where you go if you think about Italy but as you're already there i'd consider it for a few days, not more.

There's the Mole Antonelliana, which is ancient building where now inside there's museum of cinema, the Egyptian Museum (world's biggest if i'm not wrong), Palazzo Reale, Reggia di Venaria (which is really nice), basilica di Soperga and a few nice squares called Piazza San Carlo and Piazza Castello. If you're into cars there's an automobile museum, as it's Italy's motor city…
There's also a very nice a big park along the river, Parco Valentino.

Overall it has a nice vibe, it's nice to sit somewhere and enjoy an aperitivo…those squares are very good for this! It used to be a bit graysh and sad but for a while now it became quite lively…worst case scenario, Milan it's just one hour by train away…

Which festival btw? Futurfestival?

Anto, Is Como worth the trip if the weather looks bad? Due to go this weekend but if it's not worth it we'll stay in Milan and do it another time.

Not really, it’s nice with a sunny day so you can have a walk around the city center and then along the lake, have an aperitivo or beer somewhere etc…not much to do if the weather is bad.

At the moment forecasts are okish for Saturday, rain around 8pm, bad on Sunday.

Does anyone know a booking site other than Expedia that lets you book flights and hotels together, but the hotel for only part of the stay?

Anyone got any recommendations for Valencia? Heard good things and looking at heading over in early August.

Loking to finish off a trip to Cuba with a few days in a beach resort.
Anyone got any recommendations for areas/resorts.

Missus wants to do all inclusive just for ease in the day. But We’re happy to eat out of an evening.
