Tour description

 Explore the magnificent Milan, breathing in its elegance and creativity. With this unique vibrant tour you will not only see all the famous sites, but also many hidden gems.
Your English mother-tongue local guide is funny, passionate and knowledgeable. She loves Milan, her home city, and you'll love it too as you travel on this voyage of discovery.
Milan's 2600-year history will take shape through fascinating legends, myths and art. You'll see the influence of the Roman, Spanish, Austrian, and French conquerors: from Napoleon's “Arch of Triumph” to "The Devil wears Prada”.
You'll get lots of extra suggestions for your holiday stay in Milan, to make this trip the best one ever.

We start the tour in the early morning as to avoid the hottest parts of the day. If you'd like an afternoon tour, fell free to contact me for a private tour.
This unique Tour will start at the roman Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio and will end in Piazza Duomo/Alla Scala. There will be a toilet and water fountain stop.

This activity includes:
- Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio - history, war, religion and myths
- Santa Maria delle Grazie - The Last Supper (description)
- Castello Sforzesco - family feuds, Leonardo Da Vinci and Parco Sempione
- Brera district (optional) - a bohemian neighborhood with charming streets and hidden alleys. It used to be home to artists, now it is an artsy area where creativity thrives in many different forms.
- Teatro Alla Scala - home of one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world
- Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II - where fashion and elegance take center stage
- Duomo - cathedral and iconic symbol of Milan
- And other hidden treasures!!

I will contact you the day prior to the tour on WhatsApp or Guruwalk Message with all the details.
Confirmation of your attendance will then be Required by 21:00 (so the evening before).
As there are limited spots (small group tour), this tour is for foreigners only.

Serena is a real fun guide. She is super organised and easy to communicate with, pre and post tour as well. Kind, friendly and a real foodie which she is happy to share so us tourists can experience some great dishes, desserts in the city. As the comments were very positive about her I cannot say it was better than expected, reviews are on spot regarding her. Highly recommend to explore the city with her.

The walking tour was great and I really enjoyed it. Serena was super friendly and kept us engaged throughout. The group was small and personal, which I loved. Her stories about Milan were interesting and fun. Plus, she gave us fantastic recommendations for places to visit and eat after the tour. It was honestly the best tour I've ever been on so far!
