GRAND TOUR OF MILAN
Milan maybe one of the top fashion cities in the world but there is much more to see in this trendy, urban metropolis –
it is also home to an incredible patrimony of art and culture which includes one of Leonardo DaVinci’s greatest
masterpieces: the Last Supper. It is housed at Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan and has earned a spot in the UNESCO
World Heritage List. But there is plenty more to Milan than Leonardo's masterpiece!
Your half-day sightseeing tour of Milan also includes a walking tour, introducing you to Italy’s most stylish city.
Stop by the alluring Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping gallery, a 19th century glass vaulted shopping arcade.
Brimming with fashionable shops and cafes, it is often called the ‘salotto di Milano’ or ‘Milan’s drawing room’ for
its importance over the years as a common meeting point for the people of Milan. Visit the medieval Sforza Castle.
A grand medieval Castle and fortress, the Sforzesco was once seat and residence for the ruling family of Milan
and now houses several of the city's museums and art collections.
Next, tour the splendid Duomo, one of the world's largest, most striking Gothic cathedrals.
Some 135 spires and 3,200 statues are crammed onto the roof and facade of the building.
Finally, visit Milan’s most famous Opera House, the fabulous La Scala theatre.
Founded in 1778 and still in use, some of the world’s greatest musicians
and opera singers have performed here including Pavarotti and Giuseppe Verdi,
whose famous operas such as Falstaff often premiered in this very theatre.
