1. The gems of Milan
Top attractions walking tour
This tours covers the must see of Milan which are concentrated in a small traffic free area. We are in the monumental part of the city where business and art mingle, past and present meet and every single corner exudes the very special blend Milan is made of.
The Duomo, the amazing marble cathedral, standing to its incredible size in the middle of a crowded and stylish square. Created by the labour and imagination of international artists, the building celebrates the cooperation of international workers, Christian and Jewish artists who dedicated their skills and energy to the greatness of Milan. In the interior, Sequoia sized pillars rise from a coral reef colored pavement supporting the structure, shining stained-glass windows depict thousand of stories and 15.800 pipes equip the second biggest organ in Europe. The nearby Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, covered with metal and glass vaults, designed in 1878 by a young and brave architect for housing shops, cafes and sheltering Milanese from the rainfall. The first Prada shop was open in here as well as Davide Campari started his business in the famous and extraordinary art Deco style cafe. La Scala Opera House, “The Theater”, as Maria Callas used to call it, stands in the middle of the financial district, where business people pass by travelers, music artists, shopping lovers and art admirers.
