Today, we will get to discover some of the main sights in Milan on a panoramic, half-day bus tour around Italy's fashion and economic center. First, we will got to Santa Maria delle Grazie, followed by a leisurely walk to the city center, where we will see the Teatro Alla Scala, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the Duomo, and Sforza Castle, where our tour will culminate in viewing Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece fresco, the Last Supper.
This city in the northernmost part of Italy is a global center for fashion and design. Its artistic history dates back hundreds and hundreds of years; places like Santa Maria delle Grazie are decorated with Leonardo da Vinci's work.
This church and Dominican convent in Milan was built in 1469. It is most for containing "The Last Supper," the iconic painting by Leonardo da Vinci, located in the convent's refectory.
Usually known simply as "La Scala," this Milanese theater is a world-renown opera house that was founded in 1778. Premieres at the theater include Giacomo Puccini's "Madame Butterfly," among a litany of others. It underwent major renovations in the early 2000s.
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the world's oldest shopping malls, dating back to 1877. This dramatic building features exclusive, upscale stores as well as some of the oldest shops and restaurants in the city.
Milan's cathedral is the largest in all of Italy and the fifth largest in the world. The groundbreaking occurred in 1386; however, construction was not completed until 1965. Visitors can access the rooftops, which provide amazing views of the city.
This castle in the northern reaches of Italy was built by Francesco Sforza in the 1400s. As it underwent renovations in the ensuing centuries, it became one of the largest citadels in Europe. Today is is home to several museums.

Enjoyed this tour very much. I attended the morning tour so we were lucky to get to the Duomo while there was no crowd and the waiting line to enter wasn't very long. We visited Duomo with approximately 10 minutes lecture about its history and cultural significance, La Scala theater with small theater museum and booths. We had 15 minutes to enjoy "The Last Supper" and listened to the history and artistic description of the mural :) Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable, but a bit strict. She answered all our questions and made our tour very enjoyable.
