Head to Sforza Castle in the morning. Then, stroll with your guide around the castle’s courtyards, as you learn about Milan and its famous former residents, such as the Renaissance painter Leonardo da Vinci.
Continue through the chic downtown streets, seeing the Loggia degli Osii in Piazza Mercanti, which once represented the medieval heart of the city. Hear stories about Milan’s famous opera house as you pass through Piazza della Scala and then pose for photos in front of Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano).
Before your guide leaves, walk together to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the elegant glass-roofed shopping arcade, to admire its high-end shops and glitzy cafes. Your tour ends in Piazza del Duomo.
