AT YOUR SERVICE. This is a great idea for experiencing Milan where you can choose your preferred level of accommodation. It can, of course, be modified and/or extended. As we are experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests, time available and budget, we at Goway are at your service!

This 5-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.
