About the tour

This tour will show you Milan from a much more fascinating point of view than the common one and will give you the feeling of being part of this magnificent city.

Our tour in the Plaza Gae Aulenti; the agora of the new millennium. I will show you the new buildings awarded worldwide for their beauty and design. Then we will continue through Corso Como until the Comasina Gate, current Garibaldi Gate. In the place we will see places that in previous centuries were scenes of events that marked the history of the Meneghina city; it is here that you know the great secret of this city, because we will enter the center of Milan through the "Ponte delle gabelle", place where the "Naviglio della Martesana" used to pass, where we will find the great hydraulic work done by Leonardo da Vinci to connect the city by "i navigli": the locks of the channels.

Then we followed the route taken by the canals and arrived at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and its bohemian neighborhood. We continue walking until we find the Sforzesco Castle; we will know its impressive architecture and the history of the "biscione", symbol of Milan.

Then we go along Via Dante to Plaza Cordusio: the Milanese agogo of the previous millennium where we will visit the Italian Stock Exchange. At the end we finished our tour in the Duomo of Milan, the Vittorio Emanuele gallery and the Teatro alla Scala.
