Description

During this 3-hour tour you in a small group (max. 8 people) will experience an entertaining wine & food tasting of famous Italian wines in a trendy wine bar. Your local expert guide will provide a detailed tour of the most significant attractions of Milan, including visit of Duomo & its underground area, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II & Piazza della Scala. The guided tour starts in Piazza Duomo, where you can admire the unique and beautiful gothic architecture of the biggest church in Italy that took 6 centuries to be completed. With pre-booked and guaranteed skip-the-line tickets, you will enter immediately the Duomo Cathedral. After that, your private guide will help you to explore the underground archeological area beneath Duomo & the museum of Duomo. The Duomo of Milan is the largest church in Italy and the fourth largest in the world, with a capacity of up to 40,000 people. In the 1930s a special law was introduced in Milan (as you will discover during the tour, it wasn’t respected later on...) for which no buildings could have been higher than the highest point of Duomo. Its rooftops host something like 3400 statues and they are not all are saints or angels. For example, you can admire the statue of the boxer Primo Carnera (world heavyweight boxing champion in 1930s – he was the first Italian ever to gain this title), the statue of the pigeon, one of a tennis racquet, and the Statue of Liberty (the myth says it inspired New York’s one!). The tour includes the worldwide famous Piazza della Scala where you will admire the most famous opera house of Italy and the historical shopping gallery ''Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II'', which was named after the first King of Italy. Constructed in 19th century, the Galleria was built on the initiative of the king with the purpose to represent the modernization of Milan and connect La Scala & Piazza Duomo, the most important landmarks of that time. Now it is a grand display of many beautiful of high-end fashion boutiques & famous restaurants, all inside an enormous decorated glass roof of the Galleria. At the end of the tour, you will join wine & food tasting experience where a wine specialist will explain and introduce to you Italian wines in Italy spanning from the famous Tuscany area to the prestigious Piemonte, and how you can distinguish them from their aroma, flavors, colors and taste. Each important wine in Italy is strictly labeled and to be classified as signature wine, the wine makers must follow the the precise grape compositions requested by the regions. The wine tasting includes a big delicious platter of Italian cold cuts, cheese, etc, so most clients don't have to go for a lunch/dinner after this experience.
