Our tips for Milan

  • Reach new heights at the Duomo. This iconic Milan attraction is in the very centre of the city, and easily reached by various transport links. Take the elevator to the top of the church, the Duomo roof boasts beautiful sights of the city and the mountains beyond.
  • Book in advance for your Last Supper. Da Vinci's famous offering is world-famous and an extremely popular Milan sightseeing spot, so be sure to book your tickets in advance to avoid missing out and save on at-the-door fees.
  • Get served. Do as the locals do and partake in a traditional Milanese dish during your visit. We suggest digging into the tantalising risotto saffron dish, the Risotto alla Milanese, the perfect stopover meal between Milan tours.

Good to know

An Italian summer is bliss, though a visit to this busy city is best kept to just outside the peak summer months. Straddling Milan’s manic tourist season, the months of April to May or September to October are ideal for those looking to take a few Milan day tours.
