About the tour

This tour will show you Milan from a much more fascinating point of view than the common one and will give you the feeling of being part of this magnificent city.

Our tour in the Plaza Gae Aulenti; the agora of the new millennium. I will show you the new buildings awarded worldwide for their beauty and design. Then we will continue through Corso Como until the Comasina Gate, current Garibaldi Gate. In the place we will see places that in previous centuries were scenes of events that marked the history of the Meneghina city; it is here that you know the great secret of this city, because we will enter the center of Milan through the "Ponte delle gabelle", place where the "Naviglio della Martesana" used to pass, where we will find the great hydraulic work done by Leonardo da Vinci to connect the city by "i navigli": the locks of the channels.

Then we followed the route taken by the canals and arrived at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and its bohemian neighborhood. We continue walking until we find the Sforzesco Castle; we will know its impressive architecture and the history of the "biscione", symbol of Milan.

Then we go along Via Dante to Plaza Cordusio: the Milanese agogo of the previous millennium where we will visit the Italian Stock Exchange. At the end we finished our tour in the Duomo of Milan, the Vittorio Emanuele gallery and the Teatro alla Scala.

El tour fue estupendo en cuanto al conjunto de la información y conocimiento de la ciudad de Milán que me fue transmitida por el guía acompañante, de una manera sencilla y agradable. Enhorabuena.

Estuvimos en el lugar de encuentro desde 15 minutos antes como pide la reserva y cuando paso la hora pautada, al no haber más gente ni tampoco Gigio, nos fuimos. Más tarde recibí varios mails de Gigio reprochandome que no le avisé que no pensaba ir pero el que no cumplió fué él, yo cumplí en tiempo y forma

Response from Gigio:

Es lamentable no haberte encontrado. El punto de encuentro estaba desolado cuando llegué. Te mandé un mensaje informandote que llegaba con 5 minutos de atraso al cuál no respondiste. Perfectamente podrías haber respondido con un "ok" o un "no lo acepto". Si lo hubieses hecho habrías gozado de este tour. No me respondiste por interno, pero sí respondes dejándome un comentario negativo, sin haberte presentado al tour. Es una pena.

Es una alternativa muy interesante al tour quizás más tradicional. Una propuesta que, bien explicada como ha sido, aporta mucho. Gracias Gigio

Muy buen tour y se nota que Gigio conoce, además de que las ilustraciones que nos mostró coadyuvaron con el recorrido, de igual forma, las recomendaciones que no hizo fueron excelentes.
