  • Milan's Duomo

  • Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Milan Cathedral

Milan's Cathedral (Duomo in Italian) is Italy's largest church and one of the most uniquely beautiful. The architecture captivates all who look at it, but you'll have the added experience of learning about its 600-year history (in just a few minutes!) thanks to your private guide. Explore the art and architecture here and learn about the crypts as well.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and Campari Tasting

The cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete and is a masterpiece in Gothic architecture. After exploring this incredible building, we will then visit some of the other iconic sites of the city such as the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II which started a new fashion in Italian architecture and is also home to the bar where the famous Campari first began.

We will stop here for a taste of the famous bitter drink as your guide explains to you how this drink became a staple of Milan's culture and was a favorite tipple of King Umberto I. After tasting the famous Campari, you'll realize why Milan is the capital of the aperitivo.
 

La Scala Theater and Sforza Castle

The Milan Private Walking Tour continues on to the world famous La Scala Theater. Most of Italy’s greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala during the past 200 years. We will then finish at the Sforza Castle which was the residence of a powerful Milanese family who ruled Milan for centuries!

Our guide is a local, so they are sure to lead you in the right direction for the best before-dinner aperitivo spot after your tour is finished.

What a fun day! Our guide Larisia was friendly and full of knowledge. Seeing the city from the roof of the Duomo was amazing as well as seeing Duomo statues up close. Each one is unique! We also enjoyed learning more about the Galleria Vittoriano Emmanuel, Piazza Mercanti, and Starbucks Reserve Roastery. She tied current events to Milan’s history so we felt much better acquainted with this lovely city.

Informative and efficient
