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.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

25 EURO - Each Duomo pass ticket costs Euro 16,00
The taxi ride from piazza Duomo to the Castle costs about Euro 10,00

NOTE: In case of rain instead of the Duomo roofs we will visit the archeological zone and the cost of the ticket will be Euro 7,00 instead of Euro 16,00.

What’s Extra

Other: The Duomo pass ticket which includes the use of the lift to go up to the roofs costs Euro 16,00 per person.

NOTE: Groups of more than four people are admitted using a whisper radio system which I have to rent and book in advance. The cost depends on the number of the participants.

Restrictions

I am not a driver but I am can arrange transportation upon request.

A Recent Review of this tour

I contacted Barbara Q. requesting a walking tour of the major sights of Milan in the context of the political and economic influences of Milan's development over more than 2ooo years. Her knowledge of history is wonderful. She secured tickets for The Last Supper, and talked the guards into admitting us into the Duomo after it was closed! My next visit to Milan I will ask Barbara for a shopping tour of the historical Brera District - she is also a personal shopper! Highly recommend Barbara.
