What You Can Expect

Meet your guide near Cadorna railway station in central Milan to begin your walking tour. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as well as clothes that keep your knees and shoulders covered; a strict dress code is in place at many of Italy's churches. Once you get acquainted with your small group, set off on foot, taking in Milan’s famously beautiful architecture along the way.

Listen to tales about one of the city’s most famous structures, Milan Duomo, a Gothic cathedral that took nearly six centuries to complete. As Italy’s largest church, and reputedly the fifth largest in the world, you'll want to capture this moment with a photo. The wait to get in can be painfully long, but with your guide you'll skip past the entrance lines and head directly inside.

After the Duomo, peruse the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world’s oldest shopping malls dating back to 1877, with four stories and dozens of stores.

Check off a few more of Milan’s must-see sights, like Teatro La Scala, the Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, Sempione Park, Arco della Pace, Piazza Mercanti and Castello Sforzesco, a castle built in the 15th century. Other highlights include quirky examples of art such as Bramante’s optical illusion inside the Church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro and L.O.V.E — the ‘flipping the middle finger’ sculpture by controversial artist Maurizio Cattelan.

Take a break for lunch (own expense) in Piazza Duomo or around the Brera district.

If you select The Last Supper option, head to the Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie, the UNESCO-listed place of worship and Dominican convent where da Vinci's world-famous mural is housed. Bypass the crowds with your skip-the-line ticket and enter the intimate room with your guide. Get an up-close look and hear about the painstaking 21-year restoration that is has recently undergone.

Alternatively, head to Leonardo da Vinci's Vineyard. This historical treasure was abandoned for many years and has been recently redeveloped. Learn how the vineyard's roots were saved and hidden under the land after the fires of World War II. Located in the heart of the city, the amazing vineyard is thriving again exactly as it was during Leonardo’s time.

Continue your Milan tour with a stroll through the stiletto-clad fashion district of Quadrilatero della Moda, passing the shopping hot spot of Via Montenapoleone, and then wander through Piazza San Babila. After a look at the Needle, Thread, and Knot art installation in Piazzale Cadorna, return to the start point where your tour ends.

Please note:
Leonardo's Vineyard is available daily, while The Last Supper option is available only Tuesday to Sunday. On Sundays, the visit to the Duomo will be replaced with the visit to Piazza Gae Aurenti. The order of the itinerary is subject to change.
