Full description
Discover Milan on a slow tram ride through the city center, starting in Piazzale Cadorna, under the famous "Needle-and-Thread" monument. Visit Sforza Castle, where your guide will tell you the history of the Ducal residence and one of the largest citadels in Europe. Located at the margins of Sempione Park, the castle provides panoramic views of the Arch of Peace, Milan’s commemorative arch, built by Luigi Cagnola at the request of Napoleon. Traveling on Line No. 1, cross the city center to see the historic streetcars of the 1930s. Pass through the Brera district en route to Cordusio, the heart of Milan’s Financial District. Then, take a walking tour of the city center to see the imposing Duomo (Cathedral), covered Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, and La Scala Opera House. Back on Tram No. 1, ride through the Fashion District. Pass the consulate buildings of the Diplomatic Quarters, and admire the monuments of Piazza della Repubblica. The tour ends on Corso Buenos Aires, one of Milan’s main shopping avenues, making for a perfect drop off to enjoy some free time to shop!

    Friendly and competent. Flexible. Highly Recommended.

    We, a small group of people known to each other, were picked up at the hotel by Beatrice. After we had voted what we had already seen or will see through other booked tours, our tour of the city was aligned and could also get to know other interesting places and sites of Milan. The tour took place partly on foot, partly in the tram. On request, the ride was also interrupted for a small photoshoot. We can only recommend the tour.

    Laura, the guide was very helpful and professional.

    The cost of 196 € is decidedly disproportionate for an adult and a child, unless a lunch in a starred restaurant was provided !!! I don't think I'll advertise you.
