Full description
Discover the highlights of Milan on a half-day guided tour, including entrance to the legendary opera house of La Scala.

Start in the heart of the city, at the famous Duomo. The Gothic cathedral is thought by many to be one of the most beautiful churches in the world, and your guide will point out aspects of its impressive façade. Admire its flying butresses, and the gilded bronze statue of "Madonnina" atop the main spire.

Continue to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II for a walk through the glass vaults of the majestic 19th-century shopping arcade. Often referred to as, “Salotto di Milano” (“Milan’s Drawing Room”), the gallery is surrounded by boutique shops and cafés.

Next, go to Piazza della Scala for a tour of the legendary La Scala Theatre opera house. Built in 1776, the theater has played host to some of the world’s greatest musicians, including Giuseppe Verdi, Bellini, Rossini, and Donizetti. See the beautiful horseshoe auditorium from one of the 4th row boxes (except when rehearsals or performances are in progress).

Continue to the hidden Piazza dei Mercanti, and enjoy a short respite from the crowds as you thrill to Bramante’s illusion of space created during the Renaissance. Stroll through the medieval heart of Milan to Sforza Castle, the impressive fortress of the former Dukes of Milan, and now the home of many of Milan’s finest museums.

Outstanding tour within permitted time having flexibility

The tour was outstanding and the guide Cristina was full of knowledge anything about Milan. Cristina called me on my mobile well in advance before we met Cristina at Milan Duomo as per agreed time and this is somewhat we feel like in home at Milan. She was waiting having placard with my name on it and it was wonderful welcome from her. We started tour with outside visit of Duomo followed by inside of duomo with detail explanation from Cristina at every point.Then we moved thru Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to La Scala museum (outside only) and finally to Castello Sforzesco. The weather was excellent as spoken by Cristina herself and the fine weather made the walking tour more comfortable. We had the experience of Gelato during the walking in one of the shop suggested by Cristina and it was amazing. The tour will be always in our heart and mind and this was possible only because of Cristina.

die Führung war auf unsere Bedürfnisse genau abgestimmt

Der Guide hat sich sensibel nach unseren Wünschen gerichtet. Sie hat doch eine Besichtigung im Dom recht schnell ermöglicht. Die umfassenden geschichtlichen Kenntnisse hätten vielleicht noch ein wenig fundierter sein können. Teilnehmer, die sich für Geschichte interessieren und Kenntnisse bereits mitbringen, erwarten detaillierteres Wissen. Wir waren aber mit dem Guide selber sehr zufrieden, sehr höflich, sehr zuvorkommend.

Viele interessante Informationen erhalten.

Laura hat uns sehr freundlich und mit vielen interessanten Informationen durch die Hauptattratktionen von Mailand geführt. Leider war die Scala an Weihnachten geschlossen, deswegen müssen wir unbedingt nochmal nach Mailand reisen. Beatrice war sehr hilfsbereit was die Reservation eines Restaurants anging. Es war nicht so einfach da an Weihnachten doch viele Restaurants geschlossen haben. Alles in allem, SUPER Service.
