You’ll join one of our local Milan hosts to delve into the artistic side of Milan - although it’s hard not to see art everywhere in this stunning city.

You’ll step into a whole other world and see Milan’s art come alive (not literally though, that would be weird) - what we mean is you’ll witness several of Europe’s most historically significant art movements everywhere, not just in museums.

Enjoy the city’s beautiful Liberty-style architecture as you stroll through the most creative and artistic neighbourhoods, stopping to check out the famous contemporary art galleries like the Giò Marconi Gallery, Galleria Bianconi and Francesca Minini, or wander into small independent galleries that line narrow cobbled streets.

From 14th century Gothic Art to 20th century Futurism, your host will create a bespoke experience designed to take you on an artistic journey that appeals to you.

Maybe you’ve been dreaming of seeing The Last Supper for yourself (we don’t blame you, it’s breath-taking) or maybe you want to discover the city’s contemporary art scene as you muse your way around some trendy new galleries - whatever your vibe, we’ll do our best to make it happen!

Wonderful experience

Marco was fantastic. A sweet, interesting cultured guy that was very attentive, genuinely excited about his beautiful city and just a joy to be around for a few hours. He showed me some hidden gems of Milan that no tourist usually gets to see, he’s a walking encyclopedia of interesting facts and background info and he got me excited about this city. I’m already planning a longer city tour with Marco next time in the fall with some friends. Plus he showed me the best tiramisu place in town...I’ve been back twice already. Big thumbs up to Marco for making my Milan experience special.

Will definitely be going back!

Lake Como was possibly the highlight of my trip made all the more amazing thanks to my Tour Guide Marco. Marco is born and bred in Milan and incredible at what he does. As with my other City Unscripted Tours, Marco got in touch with me a few days before the tour to check in, let me know what he had planned (checking if I wanted to change anything) and where we were meeting. Right on time, Marco showed up and I saw the value in having him instantly. I walked straight onto the train and just went along for the journey, with Marco having organised everything. Having Marco plan the entire trip was amazing and meant I could really enjoy my time. Marco was on hand with history and stories the whole day, was a fantastic photographer and even was there to help me shop! This tour is a must do and even better with Marco! Highly recommend, especially for solo travellers.
