Exciting walks in Milan with a private guide

Only the lazy doesn't know about Milan, as one of the world's fashion capitals. But in addition to the chic boutiques, where you can buy products of world brands at a reasonable price, Milan is famous for its architecture, rich historical and cultural heritage, which you can immerse yourself into on the first tour of the city.

Making up a sightseeing route in Milan by yourself is not an easy task. This city reveals its secrets gradually. For those who are limited in time, the best solution is a guided sightseeing tour. And although getting lost in the historical center of Milan is quite difficult – it is limited by the inner ring of once standing here medieval walls – it is better to entrust sightseeing to an English-speaking guide. Some of the main places that the capital of Lombardy is famous for:

  • Cathedral Square and Milan Cathedral – the world's largest Gothic cathedral, topped with hundreds of spires and the figure of Madonna, Milan's patron saint;
  • Santa Maria delle Grazie – the second most important church in Milan, where Da Vinci's famous “Last Supper” is kept;
  • Brera Art Gallery and Ambrosian Art Gallery – finest collection of Renaissance art;
  • Museums of Science, Art and Technology, which have the largest collection of vehicle models;
  • Armani Museum – the exhibition presents more than 600 works of the great couturier;
  • Sforza Castle – the shape of its towers resembles the Moscow Kremlin and it became the place of storage for the last sculpture of Michelangelo, which the great master never managed to finish;
  • Castello Sforzesco – the former castle residence of the rulers of Milan, which was decorated with Da Vinci's own hand; today there are several museums with a single entrance ticket;
  • La Scala – one of the most famous theatrical scenes in the world and a theatre museum is also situated there;
  • Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – Latin cross-shaped passage of glass, iron and stone, connecting the square in front of La Scala with the square in front of the Duomo;
  • Armani Theatre – converted from a former chocolate factory.

This is only an short list of places that can be visited during the excursion in English. Football fans should definitely go to the San Siro Stadium – the base of the famous football club “Milan”. Shopaholics will be gladly welcomed by Monte Napoleone, the most famous street in the city, nicknamed the “fashion square”.
