About Last Supper and City Tour in Milan
This is a guided bus and walking tour for a panoramic view of the city with two-language speaking tour guide. The one-hour walking tour includes a visit of The Scala Duomo and the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery. The tour also includes a guided visit to "The Last Supper" the world-famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci located near the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The hard-working Milanese run their busy metropolis with efficiency and aplomb. Milano is the countrys economic engine room home to Italys stock market and business center. This stylish city is also the worlds design capital and rivals Paris as a leading fashion center. Milan is all about worldly pleasures. Shopping is of almost religious significance. Theater and cinema flourish in this fashionable milieu as does a hopping club scene and a slew of tempting restaurants. Apart from a few gems the city is not renowned for its looks its the lifestyle that counts! History is achingly prominent here. The breathtaking Duomo is one of the worlds largest most striking Gothic cathedrals while Milans art galleries many housed in former palaces are home to a host of significant works that include Da Vincis "Last Supper". You may even find yourself sipping your morning espresso in the same cafe that composer Verdi frequented. Milan receives more visitors than Venice or Florence yet manages not to be a tourist trap - perhaps thats the real secret to Milans style.
