Super fun experience to explore the city! The driver showed us beautiful places and sights. He asked in advance whether we would rather see castles/churches or monuments so that he could adjust the route. He also always took nice pictures of us and if we wanted to stop somewhere that was no problem. Really great!

This tour was one of the best things we did in Milan. Seen a lot in just one hour. With the Italian way of driving it also has something of an adventure tour :). We would book again immediately!
