Milan in a Day: Duomo, Walking tour and Optional Last Supper
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 6 hours
I cannot stress enough how wonderful and flawless this tour was. Well managed by a very knowledgeable, professional, and lively tour guide. ‘Charlie’ was exceptionally dynamic, yet, controlled the pace (while walking and while speaking) to accommodate the needs of every member of the group. I was 2 minutes late, running to meet my group, and received a phone call and voicemail from the office just a minute before the specific meeting time. The places/spots visited, geographic area covered, historic facts, entertaining side stories or commentary, all in the backdrop of the Bellísima Milan, will be surely remembered. We were given adequate breaks and snack/lunch time. Athough I was worried about a ‘6 hour’ walking tour, Charlie made it easy.
This walking tour was excellent and our guide, Catalina, was very knowledgable and considerate to walk on the shady side of the street on what was a very hot day. This is a great way to see Milan and then come back later to visit particular sites at your leisure. Walking the streets from the castle to the Duomo allowed you to see all of the shops and restaurants and get your bearings to do more exploration on your own. Didn't have to wait on a single line. The Duomo is magnificent and Leonardo's Last Supper was definitely the highlight of the tour. Something you must see even if you are not a Christian. I would highly recommend this as a first tour if you are spending more than one day.
The best way to see all the places you planned on seeing but with lots of great information to go along with it. Of course you want to see the Duomo and the Last Supper but there are some surprising and beautiful churches on this tour that you probably wouldn't have visited without the guide. It's a long day so be prepared, the Last Supper is the only time sensitive activity so after that breaks can take place whenever anyone needs a moment. This was perfect because we were in in Milan for one full day so we got to see everything we needed in a short time.
We had an amazing tour today with Ludovic (hi-lites: Last Supper, Duomo). He was engaging, funny and had non-stop knowledge. It was a full day tour that flew by; well paced, with breaks for coffee and lunch. The audio headsets worked well so you could meander around a bit if desired. His English was excellent, and he’s fluent in French and Italian. He’s clearly knows his material well. He was easily able to answer questions from the group. Everyone had a great time. R&C
Great tour where you get to know the main attractions in Milan, with a really professional and passionate guide. Enough time at each location to enjoy and take pictures while listening to an indeep description. At the end of the tour we needed to buy some stuff and the guide walked us to the store. Excellent service!
