Milan is renowned for its extravagant restaurants, high-end boutiques and deluxe spas, so it a perfect city to splash out on luxury Italy tours.
Many galleries and museums offer private tours. Il Duomo, the symbol of Milan and one of the most famous Gothic cathedrals in the world runs exclusive itineraries to parts of the Cathedral that are not usually open to the public or outside normal visiting times. You can discover the most secret corners, use private entrances to avoid the frequent queues, gain a unique insight and take photographs in complete freedom. Strolling among the Cathedral spires at sunset admiring an amazing view over Milan is a once-in-a-life-time experience!
Want to dine in an unusual setting? How about a vintage tram with opulent décor? The two ATMosfera trams will bring you around Milan’s streets taking in some of the city’s best attractions while you enjoy your four-course meal. You can rent the whole tram for an evening or afternoon if you are in a decadent mood.
In many of Milan’s restaurants, art, food and fashion have been fused to create a unique experience. Designer Roberto Cavalli’s restaurant is one of the city’s celebrity haunts that boasts a stylish interior fit with animal prints and bronze hues. At Agua and Food (Via Cesare Correnti 28), shoppers can browse for luxury clothes and pick a dried salami for dinner.
For a deluxe cup of coffee head to the Pasticceria Confetteria Cova (Via Montenapoleone 8), the oldest and one of the most famous and chic cafes in Milan. Founded in the 19th century by Antonio Cova who was a pastry chef of the Great Conqueror, Napoleon Bonaparte, it has been making delicious pastries and chocolates since then.
