What to expect

Discover the very best of Milan on this incredible sunset stroll covering its top monuments, as well as its amazing secrets and hidden corners. Thanks to the captivating stories of your local expert guide, you'll listen to the history and legends that make this city so exceptional. On this tour you’ll get to sip on a Spritz or a glass of Prosecco as the sun goes down and the city lights up for another evening of style and sophistication. Enjoy this famous Italian pre-dinner drink with appetizers for any fancy as you soak up the atmosphere at one of the city’s top venues. You’ll rub shoulders with the Milanese themselves and be able to take in stunning views from a rooftop terrace overlooking the skyline of the city’s historic center.

You'll meet your guide in the heart of Milan in Piazza del Duomo in the shadow of one of the most impressive examples of Gothic architecture in Europe, Milan Cathedral. Often referred to simply as the ‘Duomo’, it is the second largest church in Italy after St. Peter’s. The imposing edifice took over 6 centuries to complete and its countless spires are sure to leave an impression on you.

Your next stop will be the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a dazzling 19th century glass vaulted shopping arcade. Brimming with fashionable shops and cafés, it is often called the ‘Drawing Room of Milan’ for its importance as a common meeting point. Passing through the gallery, you'll arrive at Piazza della Scala, the square which houses the world renowned Scala Theatre, which has been Milan’s Opera House since 1778. Some of the greatest musicians, singers and composers in history have performed here, most notably Giuseppe Verdi.

Next, you’ll go through the Brera District. Rich in historic buildings, literary cafés, restaurants and fashionable bars, this area has long been home to artists and intellectuals alike. Winding picturesque streets will lead you north to Sforza Castle, where your guide will tell you bewitching tales of this imposing medieval castle and fortress, once the residence of Milan’s ruling family and now housing several of the city's museums and art collections. At night the battlements are awash in rays of evocative light, making it the perfect ending note in the symphony that is the city of Milan.
