Milan Sightseeing: Best Milan Tours and Day Trips to Lake Como

I’ve found tours to be a great way to explore a city—as long as the guide is knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate. The Tour Guy guides are all of the above. As a history professor with almost two decades of teaching experience, I know the deepest level of learning occurs when the person conveying the message is enthusiastic and impassioned. Every Tour Guy guide I’ve roamed with has shown a true love for their city’s sites that made sightseeing memorable, fun, and educational. Plus, it’s just cool to spend time with a local!

Milan is a swanky Italian city known for its style and fashion. Its architecture will delight, especially its famous Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, as will its art and food. One of Milan’s most famous attractions is also one of the more difficult ones to get tickets for—Da Vinci’s Last Supper. A Tour Guy tour will allow you to gaze on the Renaissance masterpiece with ease. Food more your style? Try one of the company’s great cooking classes for a tasty treat.

The following are some of the best Milan tours—they give you easy access to Da Vinci’s Last Supper, La Scala, the Duomo, cooking classes, and even day trips to Lake Como! Check them out!

These Milan tours are some of my favorites because I love a small group tour—meeting people on vacation is a favorite pastime of my husband and me. The Tour Guy also offers private tours. If you’re interested in a private tour, let me know and I’ll get you a link for one of them. There is a base price plus ticket prices for each person, but you will have a special, individualized tour.

Any of these tours will give you a special Milan vacation, so I hope you enjoy them. Buon viaggio!
