Planning Your Visit

  • Where to get the grub—and why

    The food section for each pavilion is through a separate entrance and can be reached without going through the main entrance. This helps with line congestion, which is unfortunately common—waiting 10 minutes to enter is to be expected, especially for the most popular pavilions. Still, you won’t have to wait long for dinner after a quick browse of the Expo Milano 2015 map.

  • How much time to spend

    The entrance is discounted at 7:00PM for the reason that you’d barely scratch the surface before the 11:00PM closing. Buying a two-day pass is recommended over a night ticket, because the overall resounding Expo Milano review is that it takes much longer than four hours to enjoy.

  • Water bottles allowed upon entry

    And free refill stations are located all across the grounds. Please stay hydrated, folks!

I booked this tour for myself and my partner as part of his birthday gift. I would absolutely recommend this tour, our guide was fantastic! We found out a lot of interesting information regarding the history of Milan and the local produce/cuisine. It was a small group consisting of myself, my partner and one other person so we really got a one to one feel. Each place had delicious food, wine and was very varied. Overall we really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it for anyone wanting a traditional and historical insight into Milan cuisine and history.

Really good trip! Got to walk around the Brera region which ia really nice; our guide was really good. He gave us all sorts of information about Milan and specific foods. He took us to some really nice places to eat.Highly recommend it!

Highly recommended! Tourists usually wander around Duomo, but this tour is a little bit away from this main area. Great food, fantastic guide, nice locations and more information than just about food.

Complex tour of food, history and local life Start with breakfast finish with Sicilian ice cream. Excellent!

Very nice tour, a lot of tastings and a very informative and friendly guide. I highly recommend
