A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step off the beaten path and head to Chicago Cultural Center and Milwaukee Art Museum. Get some historical perspective at Chicago Riverwalk and South Haven Lighthouses. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: South Bend (Basilica of the Sacred Heart & Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes), Albanese Candy Factory (in Merrillville) and Milwaukee (Basilica of St. Josaphat, Historic Third Ward, & more). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, see the interesting displays at Volo Auto Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Baha'i House of Worship, and shop like a local with The Magnificent Mile.

For other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
