Meet your guide at Castello Sforzesco to immerse yourself in Milan’s art and history. Head inside to explore and walk along the castle walls. Then, visit the castle museum to observe its original art and furniture, armory and musical instruments.
Hear how the Sforza family seized power from the previous Visconti rulers, and listen to fun facts about Rondanini Pietà, a prized piece of art that Michelangelo worked on in the castle. The carving is widely believed to be the artist’s last-known, unfinished sculpture.
Continue to the fashionable, yet quaint, Brera quarter, home of opulent architecture and art galleries. Learn about Milanese culture as you see La Scala theater and glimpse inside Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Admire the ambiance of the arcade, illuminated by its multistorey glass dome, which brims with its patrons’ chatter.
A short stroll later, stop at San Bernardino alle Ossa, the small church that’s home to the mysterious bone chapel. Hear about its 13th-century origins, when skeletons were stored there because a nearby cemetery ran out of space. Take note: some remains are rumored to be from criminals who were beheaded during the Middle Ages.
Then, make your way to Milan Duomo for your rooftop visit. Skip the grueling 250 steps and take the speedy elevator. Hear the history of the centuries-old cathedral on the way up, and then cherish the views at the top.
Your tour finishes here, but you can visit the cathedral on your own, if you wish.
