Description

Starting from your centrally-located hotel, your guide will walk you through the streets of Milan to visit some of its most famous monuments.

Whether or not you agree with Oscar Wilde that Milan's Duomo is 'an awful failure', you can't fail to be impressed Italy's largest church as you walk into the Piazza del Duomo.    At the very heart of the city, the incredible marble-faced cathedral is dedicated to St. Ambrose, the city's patron saint, who, as Bishop of Milan, famously excommunicated the emperor Theodosius.  Learn about the construction of the cathedral, which began in the 14th century and would continue down the centuries until the facade was finished in time for Napoleon's coronation as 'King of Italy' here in 1805.  Inside, your guide will point out some of the great artistic and historical heritage that is housed here.

Wandering through the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade, you can observe fashionable Milanesi checking out the designer stores which are covered by magnificent 19th century glass and iron domes and vaults.

On the other side is Italy's most famous opera house, La Scala.  Although you won't be going inside, your guide will talk to you about the history of the building, a replacement for the previous opera house that had burned down in the late 18th century.  From the start one of the places to be seen in Milan, today it attracts opera stars from around the world for the season that opens each year on the Feast of St. Ambrose. 

Your guide will walk you through part of the Brera district, known as the artistic heart of the city.  Still today it is home to many artisans, as well as the Brera art gallery.  Finally, you will come to Sempione Park and the Sforza Castle.  Several members of powerful Sforza family held the title of Duke of Milan throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, building the castle into a fortress, designed in part by Leonardo da Vinci.

Client Testimonials

In August 2018, my family of four and myself travelled from Vancouver, BC to Rome Italy and spent 3 weeks touring Italy with IVS.

This company had come highly recommended by many friends and associates of ours who had used them before and indeed to say they do an outstanding job is an understatement. You can tell while being in Italy that it is one complicated place to run tours in, just by the sheer nature of the place. There are many rules and we noticed traffic complications in a variety of places which this company being on the ground, advised us of and made sure we were not caught up in it.

Overall, our experience was truly outstanding and we plan on going back to Italy in the future, this time hopefully without our kids and definitely using this company again. Nothing but good things to say about the entire experience!
