The city of Milan has its origins in the 6th Century B.C. and for about 200 years was the seat of the Roman Empire. Today it is a wonderful mix of old and new. On the tour you will visit one of the earliest shopping malls, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. This 19th Century structure has two magnificent glass-vaulted arcades and a glass dome. You can take a little time out to browse through the shops or perhaps have a drink in one of the many cafes or bars, as Milan’s great poets, artist and writers of the 19th Century used to do.
Milan also has a tradition for wonderful music and the world-renowned Teatro alla Scala, Milan’s Opera House is another not to be missed delight. Designed by Guiseppe Piermarini it was built over the ruins of a former theatre and was opened in 1778.
