The monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where your tour will begin from, is home to one of the most well-known masterpieces in art history, the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Get privileged access to see this masterpiece and enjoy your exclusive access to see this marvelous artwork with a small group of people. Head to San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore and get ready to be amazed by the mural paintings there, from ceiling to the ground, coming from the 16th century. Listen to your guide to learn about the story of Santa Caterina, a woman lived in the past as an inspiration for the chapels inside the church. If you are an art enthusiast, you must see this church, which is also referred to as the Sistine Chapel in northern Italy. Enjoy a cup of coffee to restore your energy at one of the oldest bakeries in Milano before going on with your tour – be ready to taste the best espresso you ever tried. Then, go on your tour to see the financial heart of Milan, Piazza degli Affari. This is the place where Milan’s economic heart beats and where Milan gets its unique combination of finance, culture, and fashion. Hear about the history of this place that dates back to the year 1808 – go even more towards the past and learn how Emperor Augustus’ regality was. If you come back to today, enjoy having a look at a public sculpture, named as L.O.V.E. (also known as “Il Dito” in Milan or “the middle finger”) by Maurizio Cattelan. After that, your tour will go on in Milan streets and you will reach San Satiro, a place that was designed by Bramante – the same designer of St. Peter’s Basilica. You will see how perspectives were amazingly used, a miraculous thing in that time, inside San Satiro. The next stop of your tour will be the Duomo, Milan’s most well-known attraction point that represents gothic architecture in Italy well. Archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo was the person in charge when the construction started – but it took almost 600 years for the building to be completed! Currently, it is used by the Archbishop of Milan. The place was referred to as “Roman Mediolanum” in Ancient Rome, currently, it is the heart of Milan’s city center. While listening to your guide explaining all historical things to you, enthuse over the Basilica from Piazza del Duomo. Be informed that the Basilica entrance is not a part of this ticket.
