  • if you are here for the first time, or if you have just a couple of hours to spend sightseeing, a more classic tour, including the highlights of Milan: Sforza Castle, Duomo Cathedral, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Scala Opera House, might be the ideal start to get in touch with this multifaceted city
  • if you are interested in the history back to its roots, then consider taking an historical tour. The medieval Milan, with the amazing Basilica di Sant’ Ambrogio, or the Renaissance city highlights such as the Church of San Satiro or San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore could be part of your custom made tour
  • if you love contemporary and wish to really feel the vibe of today’s Milan, go for an architectural tour and explore the newest city districts, such as Porta Nuova or City Life
