Conceptio in Itinere

Classic city tour of Milan with Sforzesco Castle

Visit to the most impressive Milanese monuments

length 3hrs Available: everyday am/pm

 


Milan is not only one of the major financial, fashion and televisive pole of Italy, is also an important university centre and at the same time an enchanting city full of art.

The tour starts from Piazza del Duomo, where you will visit the Galleria and the Cathedral Dome.

 

The Scala Square has been re-named after the world’s most famous opera house was built in the neoclassic style by the architect Piermarini. Opposite the Scala stands Palazzo Marino. We will also visit Piazza Mercanti (the ancient market square), the ancient heart of medieval Milan.
The Sforzesco Castle (with entrance) is one of the Milanese most famous monuments. Piazza Sant’Ambrogio which takes its name from the ancient Basilica of St. Ambrose, the oldest church in town, was named after the patron saint of Milan. In Sempione Park there is another outstanding monument, the Arch of Peace, in a neoclassic style. The Famedio (monumental cemetery), in Lombard-Gothic style, is a real open-air museum of modern and contemporary funeral art. Our visit ends with Piazza Duca d’Aosta and Piazza della Repubblica.
