Guided bus tours, Milan, Italy
There are three tour routes for Milan; very roughly speaking they take in the centre of the city (the Cathedral, La Scala Opera House), with one heading south out towards S. Ambrogio and the Parco Basiliche, another heading further north towards Piazza della Repubblica and the central railway station and the third taking you out to the San Siro Stadium. All of the tours last roughly 90 minutes, and head off from the bus terminal in Piazza Castello, outside the Castello Sforzesco.
The routes criss-cross and run alongside each other at multiple points, and you are free to switch from one route to another as many times as you wish. Tickets are valid for 48 hours and all routes. The accompanying audio tour is available in 8 different languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. The tours operate on a 'hop-on, hop-off' basis, meaning you may leave and subsequently rejoin the buses wherever and whenever you like! You can download a detailed route-map (PDF) here.
