You’ll join one of our local Milan hosts to spend the day exploring Milan together, kind of like you would if you were here with a friend.

All you need to do is let us know what you and your friend would be doing if you had a day to explore together - is your style more shopping at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Italy’s oldest shopping mall then sipping zesty aperitivo on the banks of the Navigli Canal, or do you see yourself musing over Da Vinci’s The Last Supper and exploring the medieval Sforzesco Castle?

You will be surprised at just how much of Milan you can explore in a day - the key is to tap into some local knowledge! Which is exactly what our host can’t wait to share with you!

You’ll discover a few secret spots along the way, and they’ll make sure you see even the most famous sights through a local lens.

And of course, you’re in Milan, so rest assured there’ll be a great lunch stop along the way, you’ll probably find room to squeeze in gelato and of course, make time for that aperitivo - rude not to, really.

  • Spend the day with a host who will create an experience that's fully customized to your interests and what you'd most like to see

  • Fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Milan, getting the best of what the city has to offer in a limited space of time

  • See Milan's iconic attractions as well as some off-the-beaten-path spots - we won’t tell if you don’t

  • From the medieval castles to Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper at the Santa Maria delle Grazie, the day is yours to make!

  • Chat to your host, getting tips and advice on exciting things to do and places to see during the rest of your trip

This experience will be personalized to you!

Booked a Local to see Milan

Gregory Valente was our wonderful local host in Milan for our four hour walking experience in the city. Greg was fantastic by taking us to all the places we wanted to check out plus several that we did not even know about. Greg met us right on time at our hotel and got us to our afternoon experience that we had booked right on time as well. We even got to ride the street car and subway with Greg which for us is always fun to travel like a local. It was nice getting a break from the walking by stopping for a local lunch with Greg as well. We loved our time in Milan and Greg was great. Highly recommend!!!

City experience of Milan

We had a wonderful day with Marco. A delightful young man, who has a comprehensive knowledge of his marvellous and most interesting city. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. A visit to a "surprise" green and tranquil garden (plus tortoise) where we sat and could see the elegant and historic surrounds, was truly delightful. (Sant"Agostino-Genova) . Also the Olmetto-Piazza Vetra was awe inspiring, historically and amazing. I would additionally like to mention the majestic house and garden, the Palestro Milan - serene and beautiful, as indeed are all the gardens and green areas that we saw. Of course we have to mention the fabulous Duomo Cathedral but due to the crowds and the length of time it would take to join the considerable line for admittance, we opted to take Marco's advise and get up early the next day which we did and had an overwhelming inspiring marvel at the beauty of this wonderful cathedral. We thoroughly recommend Marco to anyone else lucky enough to enjoy his knowledge of a wonderful city.

Had Just one day to see Milan

I really feel like I saw so much of the city! We saw several churches, saw the last supper painting and beautiful courtyards I would have never found on my own. We had some lunch and did some shopping. He was even kind enough to carry the bags so I could take pictures. I finished the day with so much knowledge and a lot of great photos. Thanks Marco!

Great for new residents

My daughter and I spent a full day with Dilara Dagli, who was a wonderful guide. Our custom tour was a different from the typical tour, in that it was not just to “sight-see”. My daughter was beginning a semester as an exchange student at Bocconi University, so we were looking for someone local to help orient her in the city, the transit system, and the areas a student would want to be aware of. Dilara was extremely flexible and helpful-- by the end of the tour, my daughter could comfortably navigate the metro & trams, knew the closest Bankomat, grocery store, cellphone store & the U.S. Embassy. We also walked from the university to her new residence hall, and were even able to get a Transit card for my daughter to use during her stay. Finally, Dilara also showed us some of the fun spots in the city that the students go to, and we enjoyed a nice meal together. Some of the other top tour companies in Milan could not accommodate this special tour, but Dilara from CityUnscripted really did a terrific job, and exceeded our expectations!

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.
