Half day tour in Milan

Let’s explore Milan together!

The Duomo is one of the most impressive catheadral in the world. To experience the Duomo at its most majestic you must ascend to the top roof terrace, where you will be surrounded by an outburst of pinnacles, turrets and marble statuary and, naturally, the city’s famed golden “Madonnina”. You can’t help taking a photo from there!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is an extraordinary feat of architecture, an emblem of Milanese identity featuring a meld of beauty, art and luxury under an amazing glass roof.

Lose yourselves in the magic of La Scala Opera House while admiring its magnificent auditorium, its priceless crystal chandelier and its orchestra pit from a box. Inside you can also visit its museum hosting a rich collection of operatic and theatrical memorabilia.

Sforza Castle sits in all of its glory in the square with its “Filarete’s Tour” and a number of majestic circular keep-towers.

– La Scala Opera House square

– Duomo, the catheadral

– Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the arcade

– Courtyards of Sforza’s Castle

The order of the itinarary may be different in order to cope with the opening times.

The tour is meant to be a walking tour. The city center of Milan is rather small and mainly pedestrian. In any case, whenever you might feel tired, you can use taxi or public means of transportation.

In case you feel you need to have a car during the tour, I can provide a car and licenced driver.

Itinerary may be flexible if you like, please contact me if you have any special request.
