Excellent visit to one of the miracles that survived the bombings of the Second World War. A rich experience is visiting Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Furthermore, the walking tour was very peaceful and we had a history lesson with our guide Elisa. It's definitely worth it, especially because getting a ticket to the Last Supper is extremely difficult!

Mille Grazie to our guide Barbara for a super informative tour of Milan's key sights and of course the Last Supper. We appreciated learning all the history.

Very good with our guide Camila, we walked through a good stretch of the city although the rain did bother us.

Our guide, Vera, was great! We enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend the Off The Beaten Path tour.
