What You Can Expect

Select your preferred start time, and then meet your guide at a predetermined location — either Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie or Duomo Square — for your 2-hour walking tour. Then, follow your guide through the heart of the city to discover some of its most astonishing hidden beauties, giving an insight into Milan’s rich artistic and architectural heritage.
Walk down Via Torino to the Church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro, a place of worship that lies on an ancient sacred site erected by the archbishop Anspertus in 879. An important pilgrimage site in the 13th and 14th centuries, it was later perfected by Bramante during the 15th and 16th centuries in a classic Renaissance architectural style.
Continue down Via Spadari and Via Cordusio to Piazza Affari and see the unique L.O.V.E sculpture by artist Maurizio Cattelan. It’s no wonder this public art piece has caused such a controversy: it’s a giant middle finger in front of the Italian stock exchange building.
Head next to the Church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, once part of Milan’s most important Benedictine convents and now used as an archaeological museum. This 16th-century church may seem inconspicuous on the outside, but walk inside and you’ll discover why it’s one of Milan’s must-see sights. Dubbed the 'Sistine Chapel of Milan,’ the church has an interior that boasts some of the most beautiful frescoes in the city, with many created by students and followers of Da Vinci.
Your last stop is the magnificent work by the master himself. Sure to be a highlight of your walking tour, Da Vinci’s world-famous The Last Supper mural painting is located in the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. When you arrive here, bypass the entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket and stand in awe of the wall-to-wall artwork that depicts the biblical scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples. Listen as your guide highlights the techniques Da Vinci used and explains the significance of this beautifully preserved piece.

After admiring the artwork, follow your guide back to the start point to end your tour.
