Description

Milan is one of the top 3 fashion cities in the world, but there is much more to this hip, urban metropolis – it is also home to an incredible patrimony of art and culture which includes Leonardo DaVinci‟s greatest masterpiece: the Last Supper. On this Skip the Line walking tour of the Best of Milan – we‟ll take to the city by foot starting with a visit inside the famous „Duomo‟ located in the most central point of the city. An impressive & beautiful cathedral – it is often described as one of the most beautiful churches in the world. So impressive is the Duomo, in fact, that American author Mark Twain dedicated a whole chapter to it in his book Innocents Abroad – describing it as  “…so grand, so solemn, so vast! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful!”. Our next stop is the impressive Galleria Vittorio Manuele II – a 19th  century glass vaulted shopping arcade.

Brimming with fashionable shops and cafés – it is often called the „salotto di Milano‟ or „Milan‟s drawing room‟ for its importance as a common meeting point through the years for the Milanese. Passing through the Gallery we arrive at Piazza della Scala, the square which houses the world renowned Scala Theatre – Milan‟s Opera House since 1778 which is still in use. Some of the greatest musicians and singers the world has ever known have performed here, notably Giuseppe Verdi whose famous operas, such as Falstaff, often premiered in this very theatre. Next it‟s through the Brera District. Rich in historical buildings and „literature cafés”, restaurants and fashionable bars – this area has long been home to artists and  intellectuals.  It‟s picturesque and winding streets lead us north to Castello Sforzesco. An imposing medieval Castle and fortress, Sforzesco was once seat and residence of the ruling family of Milan and now houses several of the city's museums and art collections. The final stop and culmination of this walking tour is none other than Leonardo Da Vinci‟s Last Supper, hidden away at the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. This enormous and complex 15th century mural captures the emotional moment in which Jesus announces that one of his 12 disciples will betray him. The painting had been severely damaged over the centuries, and has only very recently undergone a painstaking 21 year restoration, revealing the original colors and details of this masterpiece. The delicate nature of this mural and its importance means entrance is strictly limited to those who have pre-booked – and only one group is allowed to stand with the painting at a time in a specially conditioned room for 15 minutes. This Skip the Line Tour of the Best of Milan includes this difficult to obtain pre-booked entrance, guaranteeing exclusive no line entry and an intimate viewing of this special painting. 

 
** Your viewing of the last supper is super-exclusive. You will have 15 minutes alone with the painting, your guide and a group of no more than 25 people. A special dress code is required to enter in churches & museums. Knees and shoulders must to be covered. The TO cannot be held responsible for entry denied due to improper dress. **

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
