Full description
Florence is not the only Renaissance city in Italy. You can still find some traces of that period in Milan as well. Unveil the last masterpiece from Michelangelo right in Sforza Castle, located in the heart of Milan. A few steps away from Duomo, the Cathedral, one of the most beautiful pieces of art is resting, the Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo. He did this amazing sculpture when he was 89 years old, only a few days before his death. But it is not all about Michelangelo. Have you ever heard about his friend Leonardo Da Vinci? During the 1.5-hour guided experience with your monolingual guide, you will hear many stories about him as well. Finally, every secret of the Castle is going to take life, visit the courtyard and the interior of the Castle and learn about Milan’ powerful families.

Much to list here: Everything as described, Very professional guide, Museums included and printed tickets by the guide for each participant. despite my poor English it is easy to understand this Italian guide. I would like to add if you are experts in Italian art and not only Italian, you can really learn a lot of interesting facts, like to answer questions; communication with the guide depends on the size of the group, obviously I was in a small group and I am very pleased. I would like to forget: it is also very easy to find a guide under the fountain: on a piece of paper he shows the name of the company you order from, and believe me, it is not enough to just have a handset in your ear to find a guide in this crowd

The tour is excellent and the guide was excellent too. But as there were few people on the tour, he did not use the machines to help with hearing and I am very deaf. I had a great deal of trouble hearing him. Also, I had very much trouble finding him because he was not carrying any sort of sign or indication that he was leading a tour. As there were so few people, he must have felt it was not necessary. But I even approached a police woman when I could not find the group. It was a very stressful experience, especially as you changed the date on which I was supposed to go.
