Select Italy (, the boutique travel company specialized in travel to Italy, shines the spotlight on Milan offering a complete array of superior travel products and services for those traveling to one of the most popular 2015 travel destinations.

Milan is preparing for its second Universal exposition, as the city previously hosted the Expo in 1906. The theme, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” will put the accent on the problems of nutrition and the resources of our planet, making of this edition the first one in history that will take part in societal issues. The exposition will run for 184 days, from May 1 to October 31, and 145 countries will attend the event in a dedicated area northwest of Milan that covers more than 1 million square meters. More than 7,000 events will be held during the Expo and over 20 million visitors are expected, this memorable 6-month event will without a doubt make Milan the must-go destination of Italian travelers in 2015.
