Full description
Meet your guide at the main entrance of the Sforza Castle. Begin your 3-hour sightseeing tour through the city center of Milan. Visit the Castle courtyards, one of the largest fortresses in Europe, and Piazza Mercanti, which dates back to the Middle Ages. Your guide will tell you about Leonardo da Vinci’s life, which was largely spent in Milan. You will visit Piazza della Scala to see the outstanding monument commemorating the beloved artist.

Your tour will include a visit to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a four-story shopping arcade that dates back to 1861. This was a precedent for the modern shopping center. The building boasts a vast glass dome and two majestic glass-vaulted arcades. You will have the chance to peruse the shops or enjoy a beverage in one of the numerous cafes or bars, as the intelligentsia and artists of the 19th century did.

Your last destination will be the Duomo Cathedral, which is the fifth largest Church in the world. This Gothic masterpiece took six-hundred years to build and is amongst the world’s finest examples of Gothic architecture. Once inside, you will learn more from your guide about all of the features that make this cathedral so special.

tour molto interessante per scoprire Milano

io lavoro a Milano ma non ho mai avuto tempo di approfondire la storia e le curiosità legate ai simboli della città. Ho accompagnato un'amica giapponese in visita e sono stata molto soddisfatta. Il tour è stato molto interessante, ricco di particolari e curiosità storiche. Lo consiglio davvero a tutti quelli che vogliono conoscre un po' meglio anche la propria città!
