Dating to the 6th Century B.C., Milan was the capital of the ancient Roman Empire for about 200 years. Visit the famed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a unique 19th Century shopping arcade in the Art Nouveau style, complete with vaulted glass. Spend some enjoyable time browsing boutiques in the “living room of the Milanese.” Sip a cool drink in one of the many cafés and bars, as the 19th Century poets, artists and men of letters did in their day.
Stand in the square of the 18th Century Milanese masterpiece, Giuseppe Piermarini’s Teatro alla Scala, the Opera House of Milan. Built on the ruins of a previous theater that burned in 1776, La Scala was completed in 1778, when it opened for performances by some of the world’s finest operatic singers. Visitors from around the world have enjoyed its many fine productions.
Visit the medieval Sforza Castle, built in the 15th Century by Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan. Here in this “Fortress of Milan,” is the Museum of Ancient Art. Admire Michangelo’s unfinished Pietà Rondanini, and frescoes by Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante. Pre-book for a glimpse of Da Vinci’s awe-inspiring, The Last Supper. This precious and delicate painting has recently been restored to its original splendor. Viewing is limited to pre-booked guests, at 15 minutes per group.
