2008 News Archive - Holidays - Bargain hunters head to Italy
24 09 2007
A country rich in history and decadent architecture, it could be the perfect place to find gems for a home in need of sprucing up in the UK.
Thus, the end of October could provide no better time for anyone with a keen eye for sumptuous decor to take a trip to this Mediterranean country.
A fruitful journey is sure to be had by visitors to the Naviglio Grande Antiques Fair, which is held on the last Sunday of every month in Milan.
Stalls bearing fine wares are set up on the banks of Naviglio Grande, the city's ancient canal, along a two-kilometre stretch.
The organisers boast the event attracts 150,000 visitors, so bargain hunters should be prepared to get up early and head down to the area before it gets too busy.
While visiting Milan, holidaymakers may find a trip to nearby Venice or Verona could be worthwhile.
