Florence is not the only Renaissance city in Italy. You can still find some traces of that period in Milan as well!

Unveil the last masterpiece from Michelangelo right in Sforza Castle, located in the heart of Milan. A few steps away from Duomo, the Cathedral, one of the most beautiful piece of art is resting: Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo.

He did this amazing sculpture when he was 89 years old, only a few days before his death.

But it is not all about Michelangelo! Have you ever heard about his friend Leonardo Da Vinci?

During the 1.5-hour guided experience with our monolingual guide you will hear many stories about him as well.

Finally, every secret of the Castle is going to take life: visit the courtyard and the interior of the Castle and learn about Milan’ powerful families.

An excellent tour with Giorgio. He is incredibly well-informed and humored me with my questions about the Castello and the “cat sanctuary” which I had read about elsewhere (it is in the “dry moat”!). Michaelangelo’s Pieta was made more moving with Giorgio’s explanation and highlights.
Highly recommend.
awesome tour

Tour guide 'Giorgio is masterful and very knowledgeable. Don't miss this tour while in Milan. The pietà alone is worth the trip.
Very good
