A guided two hour walking tour taking in some of Milan's must-sees: the Cathedral, La Scala and the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery. The tour runs year-round, departing at mid afternoon on Fridays.
Please note that although this tour does have priority entrance to the Cathedral, some queueing may be necessary due to intensified security procedures.
This tour, over and above the advantages of licensed English-speaking tour guides, benefits from having skip-the-line access to the Cathedral (Duomo) and La Scala included.
Tours last 2 hours and head off at 2:45 PM (visiting La Scala and then the Cathedral) on Fridays only. Group size is small - a maximum of 20 to 25 people - and, if more than ten in group, you'll benefit from dedicated headsets in order to not miss anything.
La Scala Opera House is one of the most famous in the world and home to its own museum; unless there is a performance or rehearsal taking place then you'll also have the chance to view the interior of La Scala from one of the gallery boxes, looking out to the fabulous crystal chandelier and the legendary stage itself. If there does happen to be a performance or rehearsal taking place then no refunds can be offered. You'll also get a look around the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery, a Milan landmark and reckoned to be one the first shopping malls in history!
The Duomo, Milan's well known Gothic fantasy, is one of the largest churches in the world and perhaps the true symbol of the city - not for nothing does it attract over 5 million visitors a year!
