Get a feel for the whole city focusing on the highlights
This is the ideal private tour to find your way around the must-sees. No visit of Milano is complete without a visit to the Duomo and its roofs, a stroll through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a walk to piazza della Scala where the 18th century Opera House is, to piazza dei Mercanti, to end up into the 15th century fortress Castello Sforzesco, a testimony to Milan's history from before the days of Visconti and Sforza up to the duke Ludovico il Moro, Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante.
