It includes Cathedral & the Sforza Castle
Milan, even though it is a modern and dynamic city, has its origins in the distant past. Its centre is occupied by the most important Gothic monument in Italy: Duomo Cathedral. This church has got walls decorated with an impressive variety of statues, all different from each other.
Apart from the cathedral, in the centre there is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. This place that was built in the second half of the nineteenth century it is a bit like the symbol of the industrial bourgeoisie that was the city's most important social class at that time. And this reminds us of the fact that Milan has always been an important point of reference for the Italian economy. The tour will continue with a walk to the Sforza Castle.
We didn't expect to see so many interesting monuments and artworks. Our smiling guide Katia took us off the beaten tracks and she also suggested some delicious places for lunch and dinner. Karen S. Sacramento, California, USA
A visit to Milan cannot be complete without a visit to the Brera palace and the Brera Art Gallery, which is home to many cultural institutions, including a stunning collection of paintings in which all the big names of Italian painting are represented. From Mantegna to Raphael to Caravaggio. The quintessence of Italian figurative culture. Milan offers this and much more
If you will request, Tours of Milan will pre-book the tickets to end the Private Tour at the famous Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci: a big painting just restored that now reveals all its beauty and the original colors. The delicate and dramatic moment where Christ is saying to his disciples: "Truly, I tell you: one of you will betray me".
Enjoy the experience living that moment thanks to all the knowledge of the genius Leonardo da Vinci, who created a timeless moment inside the refectory of the Church Santa Maria delle Grazie. The painting is very delicate: the entrance is limited to those who have pre-booked and the only group is allowed to stand with the painting for maximum 15 minutes.
