As we've mentioned, Milan is seen as being one of the capitals of fashion. But, that's not all this vibrant city offers up for a hen weekend.
The Italian hot spot is beaming with some great hen party activities, as well as hundreds and hundreds of lounge bars, bars, cafes, wine bars, cellars, clubs, live music bars and plenty more. Basically, whether it's day or night, there will be plenty to keep you and the girls busy and 'hydrated' during a hen weekend in Milan.
And, because Milan is relatively new to the hen party line up, Maximise has a few suggestions to make sure it's as good as any hen weekend out there.
First up, getting from one of the airport to your hen party accommodation. Sure you could mess about with public transport or cram into a taxi or two. But, we find that to be a waste of time and money and we'd rather get the party started from the moment we land with the Limobus Transfers or Hummer Transfers.
Once you've settled into your hen party accommodation, enjoy a Private Canal Cruise. It's the best way to discover this magnificent city.
Along with a professional guide, you and the girls will discover all there is to know about these part of Milan, as well as, the Palazzo Galloni and St. Christopher monument.
Then it's time to look and feel your best with a fabulous Beauty Party. Perfect before you hit the city, you and the girls will enjoy getting your hair and makeup professionally done during this Beauty Party.
Then get ready for one hell of a night!
Start with a Traditional Dinner, Italian cuisine is one of the best you can get, everyone loves pizza, pasta and tender meat in some delicious sauce, so you know it will be a hit with all the girls. More importantly, it's a good way to get the stomachs lined and prepared for what's ahead.
Don't try and sort your nightlife out on the spot, plan ahead and guarantee you'll have a great night with a guided Bar Crawl & Club Combo. And once you are in the club, you are going to need a drink. But don't just head to the bar, enjoy drinks VIP style with reserved seating and a bottle of spirits between every 5 girls with our Girls Night Out - Club & Bottles Combo is the way to do it!
If you want to party and truly celebrate your friend's upcoming nuptials, this is the way to do it!
Day two might be a little hard to handle after such a big night, so do some damage control with a big Buffet Brunch before getting right back into the swing of things with a Wine Tasting session.
Located in the centre of Milan, you and the girls will sample some delicious Italian wines and with the expert help of the English-speaking sommelier, who will talk you through the history of wines and the art of tasting.
Then treat yourselves to some R&R with the VIP Spa & Massages session. It's a day with all the trimmings and guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready to hit up Milan's nightlife again.
From great daytime hen party activities to some top-notch nightlife Milan is a fantastic option for a quality and memorable hen weekend
Some of the top activities for a hen weekend in Milan include a Guided Bike Tour, Guided City Tour, Evening Canal Cruise, Foot Tour, Shopping Tour, Spa Day an Outdoor Photoshoot and Brunch to help with the hangovers after a big night out.
Just like other major cities and our top hen party destinations, Milan is a city that has an extensive and impressive nightlife scene that can be found in different parts of the city.
As we've mentioned once or twice already Milan is famous for being Italy’s capital of fashion, finance and commerce. In nightlife terms, Milan is a stylish, modern and vibrant city that never stops.
The two main areas that will be competing for your attention are around the Brera gallery and the Navigli area. And, during the summer months, people flock to the little bars set on barges that line the area’s canals.
GOOD TO KNOW:
In a Milanese club, the average price of a drink is €7, of course, there are always great deals to be found and with the help of one of our English speaking guides on a bar crawl, you'll be sure to steer well clear of any overpriced establishments or tourist traps.
A number of the clubs have introduced a pay-as-you-leave-system, which is why you'll generally receive a ticket at the door. You can use this for the cloakroom as well as to by your food and drinks - just don't lose it!
While clubs generally open around 11, people don't really head there before 12 and the stay open until about 4 or 5 am.
Another thing to remember, or at least to think about, is how to dress. By no means is Milan casual, especially when it comes to the dress code. This is a chance to dress your best especially if you want to head to the Corso Como part of the city because this is where the city’s models and fashionistas hang out. If you don't look you're best or are in something designer, you probably won't be getting in.
