At the departure time selected at checkout, greet your guide at Plaza Duomo, in front of the Mondadori Bookshop. After receiving a historical overview of Milan, famed for its courtly intrigue and prominent fashion scene, you’ll stand before the exuberant Gothic façade of Duomo, the third largest Catholic church in the world.
Then, explore the ornate inner courtyards of Sforza Castle, gaze at the 19th-century glass-vaulted arcade of Gallery Vittorio Emanuele II, and navigate the haphazard alleys of the Brera district, replete with antique shops and quaint cafes.
Your tour culminates with a visit to La Scala, an 18th-century opera house that has seen the premiers of world-famous operas by Rossini, Puccini, and Verdi. Marvel at the theater and peruse elaborate costumes in the on-site museum.
The tour concludes outside of La Scala.
