Private Guided Tours of Milan
Milan is one of Italy’s most important and iconic cities. The current population is about 1.3 million people, but the metro area, which spreads much wider, is said to have about 7.3 million people. Milan is renowned for its annual Fashion Week. The fashion houses of Gucci, Prada, and Fendi are among Milan’s best known and are found along the main shopping street of Corso Vittorio Emanuelle II. This street is simply a must see for fashionistas considering a Milan city tour and no better way than through our small group tours.
Milan is known for fashion, culture and history but it also has a local flavor you will not find in other Italian cities. Milan is trendy and tends to be on the cutting edge of fashion and design. Food tours of the city are also a very popular option while visiting Milan. Take a walking tour through the Brera area, especially, where you’ll be introduced to the flavors and tastes that you will only find on a Milan city tour. In the canal district, you’ll find trendy hotels, cafes and eateries to please most any taste.
Our Milan city tours would not be complete without a visit to experience the amazing history of The Last Supper, the church and the Scala opera house.
What to See In Milan
Milano is a city in every sense of the word, it has less green space than any city in Italy. Milan may be big, but it has lovely squares, such as Piazza Duomo, with the world’s oldest shopping mall.
The people of Milan are called “Milanese,” and are considered modern in their work styles because they don’t take the typical Italian break from work during the day. Milan is also the host to the Universal Expo in 2015, a perfect time for tourists to visit Italy.
Sightseeing in Milan and Milan tours should include some of the major attractions found in the city such as:
La Scala Opera House
