Milan's magic and charm may not be immediate for a tourist, but once discovered they may be even greater than those found in many other Italian cities. Your guide will wisely explain to you all the changes that occurred to the city, its foreign domination, its intrigues and traditions.
Walk around the city with your guide and explore the most iconic sights and some you may not have thought to visit on your own. Some of the top attractions include Duomo (the third largest catholic church in the world), Gallery Vittorio Emanuele II with its 19th century glass-vaulted arcade, Sforza Castle (the fortress of Milan with several magnificent inner courtyards).
Visit the picturesque Brera district, with its narrow alleys and antique boutiques. Then enter inside La Scala Opera House, one of the world's best known opera houses: visit the Theatre and the Opera museum, with authentic costumes used during the shows. Learn about the history of Milan and its courtly intrigues. Discover the anecdotes of many leading personalities that dwelled in Milan, like Leonardo da Vinci, the composer Giuseppe Verdi and the novelist Alessandro Manzoni.
