Milan City Tour

Guided tour starting from the XIV century Sforzesco castle. You will then drive around the city and admire the beautiful XI century church of Sant’Ambrogio, the several Roman gates, and reach the Cathedral, the greatest work of gothic architecture in Italy. On the model of St. Peter’s Church in Vatican, Milan’s cathedral is the second Italian church and third in the world. Lunch at leisure in the city centre and time free for doing some shopping in the famous “fashion district”. Do not miss Via Montenapoleone with its luxurious boutiques, antique shops, and tearooms. Go on along Via della Spiga, Via Manzoni, and Via Sant’Andrea where all major Italian and international fashion designers have their ateliers: Giorgio Armani, Dolce&Gabbana, Dior, Fendi, Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Versace to name but a few. Possibility of getting tickets reserved for the Cenacolo Vinciano in the XV century Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie which preserves Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art. Last Supper, together with the “Crucifixion” frescoed by Montorfano on the opposite wall, managed to survive World War II bombings that brought down the rest of the refectory. The last restoration took over 20 years and was completed in 1999. It succeeded in recuperating original parts of Leonardo’s incredible painting, so that although on a whole the fresco is fragmentary, it is finally possible to grasp its true beauty.
