Milan City Tour
A design, fashion and artistic capital of the world, enjoy a day trip to Milan while holidaying in Lake Como.
This full day tour departs from Tremezzo at 8:30 or Como at 8:45, when we’ll make the hour-long journey to Milan by coach. An expert guide will introduce you to some of the most prominent sights of the city, starting with Storfza Castle. Built by Francesco Storfza – the 15th century Duke of Milan – it was later enlarged to become one of the largest citadels in Europe, as well as the greatest Renaissance monument in Milan. It is now a hub of activity in the city, home to multiple museums and art collections, from the Egyptian Museum to the Museum of Rondanini Pietà, which showcases Michelangelo’s very last sculpture – the Rondanini Pietà.
After this, our tour will continue on to Milan’s historic centre, where your guide will take you to all the well-known highlights, while letting you in on secrets of the city too. One of our most popular stops on this part of the tour is La Scala opera house. Dating back to 1778, most of the world’s operatic greats have performed here. There is also a museum within La Scala, with an array of costumes, paintings and historical documents just waiting to be discovered.
At the end of the guided tour, you’ll have some free time to stroll around the city centre and make the most of the shops in this fashion capital.
