If you'll be in Milan could be a good idea to take our half day walking tour with your personal licensed tour guide to have an orientation of the city, before to start this experience on your own. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel or will meet you at the prearranged meeting point in the city center and you'll visit some of the world famous Italian masterpieces.
Enter the flamboyant 14th-century Duomo, a huge building of gothic marble defended by 2,244 marble saints and nearly 100 scowling gargoyles, stop at the legendary La Scala, one of the most famous opera house in Italy.
The tour continue to the beautiful Renaissance Church of Santa Maria Delle Grazie and its rectory to see Da Vinci's magnificent Last Supper.
After that you'll also have the chance to visit the Castello Sforzesco, a former ancient fortress and noble family palace that now houses an art gallery, including Michelangelo's last sculpture, the Rondanini Pietà, and Leonardo da Vinci's manuscript "Codex Trivulzianus."
Time permitting your guide will also show you the most famous shopping area in Italy: the Golden Triangle of Fashion where you can admire the well-know Italian designers (Armani, D&G, Fendi, Gucci, etc).
