Milan is full of wonders that can be easily overlooked if you have limited time for long walks, so join this original tour by private car to discover the best sights of the capital of Lombardy! Explore the city by car with a 5-Star Local Guide who is a master storyteller. Let us take you on a half- or full-day adventure in Milan! Choose the 3-hour option to see the best selected highlights of Milan’s Old Town. Your tour begins with a convenient pickup direct from your accommodation, so you won't even have to worry about finding the meeting point. Stop at the public square Piazza Mercanti to admire medieval buildings, temporary exhibits and markets, then head to the lively Piazza Duomo. Marvel at the elegant 19th century arcade Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Royal Palace and the iconic Duomo Cathedral. At every turn you will learn something new about Milan, its history, culture and citizens. See the monument to Leonardo da Vinci and the famous opera house La Scala. The final stop will be at the inner courtyards of the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco), allowing you to admire its magnificent architecture and the neighboring Sempione Park. Choose the 6-hour option to enhance your experience with a visit to the Sforza Castle Museums. Thanks to skip-the-line tickets you can avoid the queues and head straight for the entrance. The 14th century fortress is a treasure trove of history and art, with collections of armory, antique furniture, decorative arts, musical instruments and more. See the last unfinished work by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Andrea Mantegna’s Trivulzio Madonna and masterpieces by Canaletto, Titian and Tintoretto. The extended route also includes stops by the ancient Roman Walls in front of the imposing Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore, and the Arco di Porta Ticinese by the dock on Milanese canals. Choose the 7-hour option to also visit Milan’s top attraction, the Duomo. We provide skip-the-line tickets for the Cathedral, including lift access to the Rooftops. Explore its awe-inspiring interior filled with monuments and artworks, such as the famous Saint Bartholomew Flayed. Take the lift to the rooftops to fully appreciate the Gothic spires and pinnacles adorned with hundreds of statues, like the iconic golden Madonnina. The views are breathtaking, on a clear day reaching as far as the snow-capped peaks of the Alps!
