Milan, Italy

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We took this tour so that we can view "The Last Supper" painting (it was impossible to book it on our own!). The pace of the tour was perfect - good for people of all ages and different levels of mobility. The coach was comfortable and clean (low steps as well). We liked how they had a morning and afternoon option - we chose the morning tour (English and German) but the guide (forgot her name, sorry) ended up speaking English only because everyone in our tour spoke English. Our guide did an excellent job in pointing out places of interest while we were on the coach and in describing the history and interesting facts of every building/momument/street we passed. The meeting place wasn't difficult to find, and there were helpers on site by the travel agency to direct you to the guide and coach. All the places/sites outlined in the tour description were covered, and you get ample time to take pics at each attraction. Our guide was very thorough and told us many interesting facts about Milan and the various sites. For the Duomo - you only tour the outside and get a few minutes to take pics in the square. All of the main sites (Duomo, Da Vinci monument, the Galleria, and La Scala theatre) are within walking distance, and this is part of the 1-hour walking tour. You’re driven around the downtown in order to get to Santa Maria della Grazie (where the Last Supper painting is located) and to Sforza Castle (which is around the meeting place where you get picked up/dropped off before and after the tour). I recommend walking around Via Dante after the tour. Our guide did an awesome job describing the painting to us during our visit. This is a great tour for those staying in Milan for a couple of days!
