Vigevano is surrounded by the Ticino park, which offers some spectacular views, and its town centre has a square that is a veritable architectural gem.
Its proximity and small size make it the ideal place for a day out, including for people who are in Milan on business.
Most importantly, Vigevano was, for a long time, the Italian capital of footwear, and its International Museum of Footwear, with a huge collection of shoes from all eras, is worth a visit for all specialists and fashion lovers.
Vigevano also boasts a number of charming B&B's such as the Locanda San Bernardo and the Maison Piccola Torre. Why not stay a week-end to enjoy this beautiful town in the Lombardy.
Besides the Shoe Museum, we suggest visiting the Duomo dedicated to Saint Ambrose and “Leonardiana”, a virtual exhibition of the works of Leonardo da Vinci. And spending some time on the Piazza Ducale, one of the most beautiful piazzas in Italy.
Why not take a break for a coffee or aperitivo in one of the cafes on the Piazza Ducale, such as Pasticerria Colombo or Ristorante Rinasciemento.
