Two-Hour Rickshaw Tour of Milan's main Tourist Attractions

Let your private driver show you the highlights of Milan in a modern rickshaw. You meet at Duomo Square, just on the left hand side of the Cathedral's façade, in front of the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery. You can ask the driver to give you time at the various sites along the way during your two-hour tour, which includes Milano Cathedral, Sforza Castle, Sempione Park, where Torre Branca is located, and Marino Palace. Branca Tower has its own museum which is worth a visit ( ). Designed by Gio Ponti and built in 1933 in just two and a half months on the occasion of the 5th Triennale Exhibition of modern decorative and industrial arts and architecture, Branca Tower is considered a work of art rather than an industrial tower. At 108.6 meters height, it's Milan's 6th highest structure after Unicredit Tower, Palazzo Lombardia, Pirellone or Pirelli Tower and Breda Tower.

Milan Cathedral and Rooftop Tour

Before Milan's cathedral could be built in 1386, three important buildings had to be demolished: the Archbishop's own palace, the Baptistery of St Stephen at the Spring and Ordinari Palace. On Archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo's orders Milan's magnificent cathedral was built – but it was only possible because by 1386 his cousin, Galeazzo Visconti, had risen to power. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, or the Nativity of St Mary, the Cathedral is still the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. It took six centuries to complete and is the largest church in Italy, the third largest in Europe and the fourth largest in the world. St Peter's Basilica may be larger still, but it is located in the State of Vatican City, a separate entity to Italy. The tour allows you access to all areas of the cathedral, as well as the lovely Church of St Gottardo in Corte. You can climb up to the terraces or simply take the elevator to save your energy for the 27 halls of the Grande Museo del Duomo. If you take the multilingual audio guide option, you can collect it inside the Cathedral or at the ticket office in the Sala delle Colonne at the Groups/Priority Desk.

Milan's Virtual-Reality Tour of Leonardo da Vinci's World

Lasting just 1.5 hours, this virtual-reality tour gives you a brief glimpse of one of history's most accomplished artists: Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (born either 14th or 15th April 1452, died 2nd May 1519), more commonly known as Leonardo da Vinci. The tour allows you to see Milano through his 15th century eyes. There are few things Leonardo wasn't interested in. He was an inventor, excelled at painting and drawing, sculpting, science and architecture, music and mathematics, engineering, anatomy, astronomy, botany and geology, to name but a few of the things he was really, really good at. Widely regarded as one of the greatest painters of all time, Leonardo painted 'The Mona Lisa' and 'The Last Supper'. He also left numerous drawings of animals, human beings and engineering projects like flying machines or weaponry. He is one of the Renaissance's most famous men, only rivaled by Michelangelo. So put on your Oculus GO headset and return to this exciting period of history!

The tour lasts just 45 minutes, because the masterpiece is in such demand. Shown at the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the painting was created during Leonardo's time in Milan; he worked in the city from 1482 to 1499 and was commissioned during that time to paint the 'Virgin of the Rocks' for the Confraternity of the Immaculate Conception and 'The Last Supper' for the Monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The tour guide will explain what you see in the painting, the significance of the composition and grouping of the apostles, use of colour and much more.

The lake is renown for its clear waters and outstanding natural beauty. You can get the best views on a private boat cruise of the lake. At the southern end is the town of Sirmione, over which towers the Rocca Scaligera fortress. Close by is the Grotte di Catullo, an archaeological site of a Roman villa. On the western shore lies Gardone Riviera with the former home of the poet d'Annunzio. In the north lies Riva del Garda, a resort. Lake Garda is 51.9 km long, so your boat cruise allows you to get a real eye-full of the Dolomites in the background.

If you're staying for longer in Milan, you might also like to visit the elegantly domed Galleria Vittoria Emanuele II, an early 19th century shopping mall located just opposite Milan's Cathedral, or the minuscule Piazza dei Mercanti, a lovely medieval square faced by the 13th century Palazzo della Ragione. It was originally built as a judicial seat just opposite Loggia degli Ossi in Old Milan. Today the Palazzo is used as an exhibition space dedicated to photography.
