Begin your three-hour private walking tour of Milan with duomo access with a friendly, expert private guide and a skip-the-line visit to the medieval Sforza Castle. This magnificent historic building was built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan, on the remains of an older 14th-century fortress. It later became one of the largest citadels in Europe and boasts a beautiful garden as well as Michelangelo’s exquisite, final sculpture—the Rondanini Pietà. Learn all about the Sforza family and their impact on Milan and Italy – as well as the life and talent of Michelangelo. 

After the castle, enjoy a guided tour of central Milan – the fashion and financial hub of Italy! Explore the exclusive glass shopping arcade, the Galleria – lined with high-end Italian and French fashion houses, and pass by the grandiose Piazza Mercanti, or Merchant’s Piazza. Surrounded by no less than four glorious palaces, the Piazza Mercanti was the medieval heart of the city – where trade, commerce, and politics all happened. 

Your final stop is the world-famous Duomo of Milan – a global symbol of the city with its imposing facade and majestic Gothic spires. Indeed, it is the 5th largest cathedral in the world. Here you’ll be able to skip the line and enjoy a guided tour of the vast interior, then your guide will provide you with tickets for the elevator, which will take you up to the panoramic terrace, where you are free to walk among the spires and pinnacles and admire the spectacular views at your own leisure. Truly an amazing experience!
