What to Expect
Enjoy skip-the-line entrance to the Church of Santa Maria dell Grazie and see Da Vinci’s legendary “Last Supper” on this 3-hour walking tour of Milan. It is just one of the highlights of the excursion, which also takes in the bohemian neighborhood of Brera, and the fantastic fashion stores of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
From haute-couture, to urban hip, Milan offers a bit of something for everyone. Starting from the famous Duomo, dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, you will head off down handsome boulevards exploring the city’s major sights. Follow your guide on a stroll through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and see the bustling arcade’s delightful shops. Built in the traditional 19th-century style, its high vaulted ceilings are covered by a glass arch and cast iron roof.
After a bit of window shopping, pass through Piazza della Scala and admire the world famous Scala Opera House, home to the finest singers in the world. Next, walk through the historic Brera district. As if walking out of a Puccini opera, find yourself in the bohemian epicenter of Milan, filled with artists and intellectuals sitting over a coffee or small glass of wine. Soak up the ambiance before heading up to the castle and fortress of Sforzesco.
Your final stop will be to see Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece, “The Last Supper.” Hidden away in the Church of Santa Maria dell Grazie, this mural is one of the crowning achievements of Da Vinci's life. Because the painting is so delicate, and so important, entrance is strictly limited to pre-booked guests, and only 1 group is allowed to stand with the painting at any one time. You will have advanced reservations to skip to the front of the line and see the painting in all its glory.
