Description

Explore some of Milan's finest destinations and learn about every attraction you see and experience from a knowledgeable tour guide! Discover the ancient city's art, culture, architecture and history as you visit its prized historical sites.

Start off the walking tour by going back in time to the 15th century on your visit to the Sforza Castle. The Sforza Castle is known for its past residents, the powerful Sforza family who headed the Sforza dynasty in Renaissance Milan. Among the famous regular residents of this castle is Michelangelo whose work of art, the Pietà Rondanini, is housed in the frescoed hall of the castle's Spanish Hospital. Walk around the castle grounds with your guide before you go on an intensive tour of the castle's seven specialized museums. The castle's museums contain ancient treasures including paleo-Christian sculptures, sculpted reliefs, antiquated furnitures, prized famous paintings (Bramantino's Noli Me Tangere and Andrea Mantegna's Trivulzio Madonna), Lombard Gothic art, and so much more!

A bonus of the tour would take you to walk a section of the walls where your guide will tell you the story of how the Sforza family was forced out of the castle by Louis XIV.

Head over to the Bone Chapel of Saint Bernardino alle Ossa after a tour of the magnificent Sforza Castle. The Bone Chapel features a myriad of bones of the dead during the time of the Black Plague. Due to overflowing cemeteries and countless fresh bodies from a nearby hospital, officials were forced to exhume old skeletons from the cemeteries and moved them to a small chamber to make room for the fresh ones. The eerily beautiful bone chapel showcases hundreds of human skulls and other bones stacked behind wire meshes to form crosses or attached to the walls to create intricate patterns.

Finally, pay a visit to the Milan Cathedral where you will get to climb the rooftop. Enjoy sweeping views of the cathedral's surroundings on your visit to its rooftop. See a wide variety of spires, gargoyles, and neighboring old buildings and establishments. As you wait to board the elevator up to the rooftop, hear interesting facts about the cathedral itself which took about 600 years to build. Among the things to look out for on your visit to this outstanding cathedral are the relics that it houses. One of the relics is the nail believed to have been used during Jesus' crucifixion. Your witty guide will enlighten you about all the other relics that can be found in this cathedral.

After a tour of the rooftop, enjoy your free time to roam the cathedral unguided.
