Get a feel of the whole city visiting 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.

Sudden changes to the Duomo regular opening hours due to force majeure are beyond my control. Should that happens, I will promptly inform you.

A Recent Review of this tour

Barbara was a great guide. She knows Milan like the back of her hand. We walked to all the "must sees", even in the rain! Her tour of the Duomo was spot on, making sure we saw all the sights on the roof and inside. There was't a question she couldn't answer! And, as we are very inquisitive, she was very patient with all of our many questions. I would not hesitate to use Barbara again -- especially for another Hidden Places of Milan tour she mentioned.
