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.

Sudden changes to the Duomo regular opening hours due to force majeure are beyond my control. Should that happens, I will promptly inform you.
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 8,00 instead of Euro 17,00.
It's a walking tour + use of public transportation.
If the meeting point is at your hotel or at the Central or Cadorna Railway station and you are not keen on using public transport, a taxi or private car may be required and in this second case I can provide a professional driver and a high quality vehicle registered for passenger transport to be booked in advance.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
65 Euro - The Duomo pass ticket which includes the use of the lift to go up to the roofs costs Euro 17,00 per person.
The Opera House alla Scala ticket costs Euro 9,00 each.
Public Transportation: about Euro 3,00 each.
A meal in a restaurant + drinks about Euro 40,00 per person.
I am not a driver but I am can arrange transportation upon request.

We enjoyed our Milan tour with Barbara. She was able to show us things that we would not have found -like tributes to boxing on the Duomo or Versace's home. She is very knowledgeable and her love of Milan shows. Tour and information about designers was a big hit with our 24 yr old daughter. Highly recommend.
