Is it your first time in Milan? With our walking tour in the city centre we’ll be amazed at its beauty.

 

 

We'll start the tour by visiting the courtyards of the imposing Sforza Castle. Erected in the 14th century as a medieval fortress surrounded by a wide water moat, it later developed into a magnificent Renaissance dwelling. Great artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Bramante and many others were commissioned by the Duke, Ludovico Sforza, to design and decorate the buildings housing one of the most sumptuous courts in 15th century Europe.

 

Soon after, we'll walk to La Scala Opera House, the Temple of Music,  where every theatre artist wishes to perform. We'll explore the refined Theatre Hall, the Museum and hear the stories of famous singers, musicians and impresarios who contributed to its fame worldwide fame. Let's stroll along the Gallery, the lofty arcade, admire its metal and glass vaults and its precious floor mosaics, glimpsing into elegant boutiques and old cafés.
