Full description
Enjoy a 90 minute walking tour of Milan and discover some of the city's hidden treasures!

You’ll visit enchanting sites and out-of-the-way churches that many locals haven’t seen. Learn about the Church of San Bernardino alle Ossa and the meaning of its sinister name.

During the tour you’ll also have the chance to visit the disappeared church of San Giovanni in Conca. Located next to Missori Square, the crypt is hidden just a few meters below ground level, under the busy streets. There is a wall made of red bricks with elegant Romanesque monofores. As you get closer you’ll find a small staircase leading to the crypt of the vanished church.

Afterwards you’ll visit the church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro, located just south of the Duomo. Built in 876, this architectural gem was later perfected by Bramante, who demonstrated his command of proportion and perspective, keynotes of Renaissance architecture.

Price-performance ratio not so good, but ...

Price-performance ratio not so good, but probably the only way to see the less touristy destinations. I would have liked one or two additional spots, then the specified duration of the tour would have been reached.

The tour was very interesting, we were shown sights that we would have walked past without notice. Laura was a very personable tour guide who was also able to answer our very spontaneous questions.
