Meet your expert LivTours guide in Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie to begin this very special private tour of Milan, starting with a magical visit to da Vinci’s vineyard. Leonardo da Vinci is one of the greats of the Italian Renaissance, famous for his art, his writings and his inventions alike. One of his most famous frescos, the Last Supper, is housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie, a 15th-century church designed by a contemporary of da Vinci, Donato Bramante. It was after the great maestro had finished his iconic fresco of The Last Supper that he was gifted this beautiful vineyard. He then bequeathed it to his favorite pupil Salai and from there ownership of the vineyard passed down through the generations.
Sadly, the 500-year-old vineyard was destroyed during the bombing of the Second World War, but it has been resuscitated in recent years. Thanks to excavations, research and genetic engineering, da Vinci’s vineyard is a thriving wine-producing enterprise once again! You will be able to visit not only the lush green vineyard but the pretty 15th-century Atellani house, with fascinating tidbits about Leonardo’s life in Milan.
Afterwards, your expert guide will take you on a private tour of the highlights of Milan. This city, whose humble origins date back to the 6th century, is today Italy’s financial powerhouse and fashion capital. It is a very modern city, but also holds Renaissance treasures. You will stop at the magnificent San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, walk through Piazza degli Affari, see the L.O.V.E. sculpture and San Satiro among many other sights. Your guide will also treat you to a complimentary authentic Italian coffee.
After exploring the streets, you will step into Milan’s iconic, awe-inspiring centerpiece: the Duomo. The Duomo is over 600 years old and is the 5th largest cathedral in the world. Construction of this gothic architectural masterpiece began as early as 1386. The interior of the cathedral is vast and contains over 3,500 statues. At the conclusion of the tour, your guide will show you to the terraces, where you’ll be able to explore on your own amongst the famous gothic spires and pinnacles, and enjoy captivating views over the city and the surrounding mountainous landscape.
