Shortage of time? This is the ideal tour for you!
I have designed this tour for those who fly to Milan in one day or for those who do not have enough time to go into details but are willing to get the feel of the city and take advantage of an 8 hour private guided tour to see the highlights.
We will be visiting the Duomo inside and its unique roofs, we will stroll along the Galleria V. Emanuele II, the Fashion District (Quadrilatero) where via Montenapoleone is, we will peep into the gorgeous courtyards and go inside the enchanting Opera House alla Scala. After discovering the bohemian Brera district we will go into the courts of the 15th century Sforza Fortress (Castello Sforzesco) going back to the time of the duke Ludovico il Moro who invited Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante to work here. The Basilica of S. Ambrose is the following destination and last but least the Canals District, the famous manmade Navigli.
During the tour we will have a short break to have a delicious Italian meal and we will enjoy a coffee or a gelato in historical pastry shops.
