Are you ready for a virtual tour with us? So … ready, steady, go! 

Stop 1: The Duomo 

A visit to the Duomo is a great way to start your day! The Cathedral is located in the main square in the centre of Milan and it is one of the top tourist attractions in Italy. It is very famous and it is one of the oldest churches in our country. We do recommend a visit to the terrace on the roof, where you can have a stunning view of the whole city and beautiful statues and decorations. A lot of shops, restaurants and bars are close to the Duomo area. Don’t forget to start your day with a typical Italian breakfast: a croissant and a cappuccino!

STOP 2: Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”

Da Vinci’s masterpiece is the most popular and well-known religious representation of “The Last Supper”. It is a must-see! Its permanent home is the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie and it depicts the instant just after Jesus reveals that one of his friends will betray him. The painting is breathtaking! Don’t miss it! Don’t forget to book at least two weeks in advance or you will not get anywhere near Da Vinci’s Last Supper!

STOP 3: The Navigli District                                                                                                                                                                   
The Navigli District is famous for its artificial navigable canals. The construction of the Navigli began in 1179 and today it is still possible to see the innovative systems of dams conceived by Leonardo Da Vinci when he arrived in Milan in 1482. Ludwig II il Moro asked Leonardo to study a system that would make navigation from Lake Como to Milan possible. This area is now a lovely place full of trendy restaurants. What about having lunch here? Pasta or pizza would be excellent! 

STOP 4: The Scala Theatre 

Spend a wonderful evening in a warm and charming atmosphere filled with good music and in a very beautiful setting. The Scala Theatre is the most famous classical opera theatre in the world. The building was designed by the neoclassical architect Giuseppe Piermarini and it was opened on 3 August 1778. A symphony concert, a ballet or a recital followed by a delicious risotto with saffron are a fantastic end to a perfect day out in Milan!
