Enjoy this famous Italian pre-dinner drink with appetizers for any fancy as you soak up the atmosphere at one of the city’s top venues. You’ll rub shoulders with the Milanese themselves and be able to take in stunning views from a rooftop terrace overlooking the skyline of the city’s historic center. This is truly Milan at its finest.

Meet your guide in the heart of Milan in Piazza del Duomo in the shadow of one of the most impressive examples of Gothic architecture in Europe, the Milan Cathedral. Often referred to simply as the Duomo, it is the second largest church in Italy after St. Peter’s Basilica. The imposing edifice took over 6 centuries to complete and its countless spires are sure to leave an impression on you. In his book "Innocents Abroad," Mark Twain gave it a chapter of its own, describing it as “So grand, so solemn, so vast! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful!” Your next stop is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a dazzling 19th century glass vaulted shopping arcade brimming with fashionable shops and cafés. It is often called the "Drawing Room of Milan" for its importance as a common meeting point. Passing through the gallery, you will arrive at Piazza della Scala, the square which houses the world-renowned Scala Theatre, which has been Milan’s opera house since 1778. Some of the greatest musicians, singers, and composers in history have performed here, most notably Giuseppe Verdi, whose famous operas, such as Falstaff, often premiered on its influential stage.

Next, you’ll go through the Brera District. Rich in historic buildings, literary cafés, restaurants, and fashionable bars, this area has long been home to artists and intellectuals alike. Winding picturesque streets will lead you north to Sforza Castle, where your guide will tell bewitching tales of this imposing medieval castle and fortress, once the residence of Milan’s ruling family and now housing several of the city's museums and art collections. At night, the battlements are awash in rays of evocative light, making it the perfect ending note in the symphony that is the city of Milan. Take this opportunity to combine Milan’s top sights with the unrepeatable chance to enjoy an aperitivo in true Milanese style and see why this dynamic city takes so much of the Italian limelight.
