Description

Discover Milan's cultural heritage as you spend half a day exploring the city center with a knowledgeable local guide. Begin at the Duomo, go for a stroll through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, tour the legendary La Scala opera house, and finally to the hidden Piazza dei Mercanti.

Begin your tour at the Duomo, a Gothic cathedral considered to be one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Admire the many intricate details of its façade, its unbelievable flying buttresses, and the gilded bronze statue of “Modonnina” crowning the central spire.

Next, walk through the glass vaulted 19th-century shopping arcade, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. This stunning plaza—sometimes referred to as Salotto di Milano (Milan's Drawing Room)—is perfect for checking into boutique shops and cafés.

Arrive at Piazza della Scala and tour la Scala Theatre, the legendary opera house. This structure from 1776 has hoted Giuseppe Verdi, Bellini, Rossini, and Donizetti, among many other famous performers. Stand in a 4th-row box and admire the auditorium's horseshoe shape.

Finally, wander Piazza dei Mercanti, achieving a brief respite from the crowds, and savoring Bramante's Renaissance-era illusion of space. Stroll through Milan's medieval heart to reach Sforza Castle, once the fortress of the Dukes of Milan, now a modern-day museum.

Very good guides. Maybe to much history that I already knew, but I saw more than I expected. A bonus.
