During this private tour of Milan, you will have the chance to see the Castello Sforzesco, La Scala Theatre, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and finally the Duomo. Anyway the order of visit might be modified according to the meeting point chosen to start the tour.
Born as a defensive fortress under the rule of the Visconti (1368), the Castello Sforzesco was transformed into an elegant residence by Francesco Sforza (1450) and his heirs. Some of the most important artists of the Renaissance, including Filarete, Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci, worked at the Castle. Occupied by the French, Spaniards and Austrians, the Castle experienced its revival only at the beginning of XX century thanks to the restoration by Luca Beltrami and to the City of Milan that made it the seat of the Civic Art Collections. Its walls still preserve today real treasures such as the PietÓ Rondanini by Michelangelo or the Trivulzio tapestries by Bramantino.
A fifteen-minute walk away from the Sforza Castle there are La Scala Theatre and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
The Duomo of Milan is the last stop of this 2-hour Tour. In 1837, Nikolai Gogol described the Milan cathedral in this way: Imagine an immense building, all marble, statues and perforated ornaments, like a lace. The Cathedral is the center of Milan; the fourth largest cathedral in Europe for its surface and the second in Italy after St. Peter ĺs in Vatican City. It was built starting from 1386 in the Gothic style and has an incredible number of statues and spires.
