This 4-day Milan city break explores the beating heart of modern Italy, taking in the Duomo, Da Vinci’s Milan, and a special day of sightseeing for soccer fans.
Staying at the Grand Visconti Palace, embark on a walking tour of Milan that passes Teatro alla Scala, and explores the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Take a tour of the Duomo cathedral, and climb aboard for a bus tour of the lesser known Milan sights. You’ll disembark at Santa Maria delle Grazie Basillica, an impressive stop in its own right that also just happens to house Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. A pre-booked ticket to ‘skip the line’ ensures you get to enjoy the painting.
Inspired by this phenomenal work, spend a day tracing Da Vinci’s steps, staring with the Sala di Leonardo and the Atlantic Codex. Pour over Da Vinci’s manuscripts on mathematics, anatomy, botany and more. Then leave the passions of the Renaissance behind as you dive into one of Italy’s modern obsessions, football! Take a day tour of Milan’s best soccer related sights, including San Siro Stadium, and the museum within, which tells the story of Milan’s two main football teams. Go on to Casa Milan, then enjoy another Italian passion – Eating! – at the brand new Cucina Milanello.
STAY LONGER IN MILAN. This idea can be extended and/or modified: Go to Day Trips for some ideas. They are just a sample as we can personalize your stay according to your interests, time available and budget. We look forward to being of service and organizing an awesome travel experience…for you!

Grand Tour Of Milan
Guarantee your visit to see one of the most famous works of art in the world, Leonardo da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'. Reservations to see this legendary painting are limited and sell out quickly, sometimes months in advance. Choose this best-selling tour and be guaranteed advance booking and "skip the line" tickets. Plus you'll take a half-day tour of the impressive city of Milan. But there is plenty more to Milan than just Leonardo's masterpiece! Your half-day sightseeing tour of Milan also includes a walking tour, introducing you to Italy's most stylish city. Take a look at the medieval Sforza Castle. A grand medieval Castle and fortress, the Sforzesco was once residence for the ruling family of Milan and now houses several of the city's museums and art collections. Visit the splendid Duomo, one of the world's largest, most striking Gothic cathedrals. Some 135 spires and 3,200 statues are crammed onto the roof and facade of the building. Walk inside Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping gallery, a 19th century glass vaulted shopping arcade. Brimming with fashionable shops and cafes, it is often called the "salotto di Milano' or 'Milan's drawing room' for its importance over the years as a common meeting point for the people of Milan. Enter Milan's most famous Opera House, the fabulous La Scala theatre. Founded in 1778 and still in use, some of the world's greatest musicians and opera singers have performed here including Pavarotti and Giuseppe Verdi, whose famous operas such as Falstaff often premiered in this very theatre. Your entrance ticket provides 24 hour admission to the theatre and museum so you can return the next day. Finally the tour ends with the view of Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper, a UNESCO World Heritage site, housed at Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. The delicate nature of this mural and its importance means that Last Supper tickets are strictly limited to those who have pre-booked. This Skip the Line Tour of the Best of Milan includes this difficult to obtain pre-booked entrance, guaranteeing exclusive no line entry and an intimate viewing of the Last Supper.
Lake Como and Bellagio (Summer)

After spending time shopping and dining, you will take a two-hour panoramic cruise on Lake Como to the enchanting village of Bellagio.
After your 1-hour coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como visiting historic center and enjoy some free time to get to know the town and shop in the many local boutiques. The tour continues with a 2-hours cruise on the lake. Admire the lakeside villas and keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel set in tropical gardens. The mild Mediterranean climate ensures an abundance of exotic and rare plants thrive year round. Docking at the town of Bellagio, one of the most famous towns on the lake, you can follow the steep alleys running up from the lake and stop for a coffee or gelato at one of the lively cafes housed in grand historic buildings. Spend some time at your leisure here before cruise to Cadenabbia and return to your coach for the journey back to Milan.
