You’ll join one of our local Milan hosts to explore Milan as you would with a friend; seeing what there is to see, eating what there is to eat and drinking what there is to drink! Plot twist - your friend also knows the city’s secret spots and can’t wait to share them with you!

You could visit the Duomo di Milano with its gothic cathedral where you can view the city's contemporary skyline from its terraces, or wander through one of the city's eclectic neighbourhoods - the chic Brera is always worth checking out with its narrow, cobbled lanes flanked with boutiques and art galleries. Just tell us what you’re into and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Perhaps you would like to visit an Opera House or take in the wonders of art from the most legendary of artists (yes, we are talking about Leonardo da Vinci), or maybe you’d prefer to have your experience at sunset and do a spot of shopping, explore the historic Navigli neighbourhood (it’s one of the trendiest in the city these days) before winding down with apetitivo?

Whatever your vibe, your wish is our command, it’s your half day in Milan after all.

Reviews for this experience

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.

Hidden gems in Milan

Thanks to Marco I visited many places I've not seen in previous tours of Milan. He took me to very interesting and beautiful places outside of the major tour sites. He does know Milan well and the history to go with different sites. Very personable and kind. Had a lovely time with Marco and will recommend him very highly.
