What to expect

Explore the fashion capital of Italy onboard a red open-top double-decker bus and learn the history of buildings, monuments and the many highlights.

From the top of your CitySightseeing bus you’ll be able to discover this creative and multiethnic city from a different perspective and enjoy a panoramic view. The 3 different bus lines will take you to the ancient Milan Cathedral, the Duomo, which is the symbol of Milan, or to San Siro Stadium, home to the football teams of Inter AC and Milan, and the beautiful Sforza Castle. Discover Milan at your own pace – hop on and off at any point along the route and enjoy the commentary while onboard, now available in 8 languages.

With the 4 lines and 5 buses you'll be able to explore the city and visit its most popular shopping areas, attractions and places of interest: La Scala Theatre, Sant’Ambrogio Cathedral, Parco delle Basiliche, The Sforza Castle and the Navigli area, now completely restored and restyled for Expo 2015. Let the bus take you to Duomo square, Milan’s cathedral and most famous landmark – take a look to the sky and find out the golden statue called 'Madonnina' perched on top of the tallest spire. From Duomo you can easily reach the Scala opera house. The red bus will take you to the brand-new areas, as well as to touristic areas and luxury shopping streets right at the heart of the city. If you travel with children, City Sightseeing offers a child-friendly recorded commentary available on Line A and B.
