Milan upside down
Package price per person, 4 days from € 259,00Group price valid from 20 participants.
Milan is evolving. It changes every season but still preserves that “Lady of the North” charm that has confirmed it as capital of northern Italy for a millennium and, in recent years, as Europe’s second most loved destination. In recent years Milan can be visited looking up at the skyscrapers designing its new skyline, in the Porta Nuova district. If vertigo makes that a problem, you can take a tour looking downwards to learn about mysterious Milan hidden under its hectic streets.

Day 3 After breakfast, meeting with the guide. After collecting bikes, you will leave to discover the New Milan. Skyscrapers have been going up for some years now giving the city a new skyline; with the Duomo, always the undisputed giant of its panorama, reduced to a small church hemmed in by the glass surfaces of new buildings. Through art, history, town planning and architecture, the two-wheeled guided tour will lead us to Milan’s proud new district. Where from the old “vecchio” Pirelli to the new Pelli skyscraper, from the square piazza Gae Aulenti to the Vertical Wood records abound: from the most innovative skyscraper, to the one experimenting with new building types and then, best of all, proves to be “self-sufficient”, in a challenge between world famous architects. Afternoon free. Return to hotel and overnight stay.
