A good combination between a private half-day walking tour rich in anecdotes about ancient crafts, popular beliefs and medieval trade cores and a tasty food-tour in Milan, during which you will discover some of the most important districts, such as Brera, in the past “the small Venice”, now the “the milanese Montmartre”. Starting with a nice breakfast based on Panettone and 100% Italian Expresso or Cappuccino, you will continue with Gorgonzola cheese and “salami Milano” in a historical shop, then you will sip the well-known Campari alcoholic drink, and the so-called “cotoletta alla milanese” (an-fried veal cutlet) in a unusual street-food version! During the trip you will enjoy some of the most famous monuments, such as the Sforza Castle, the Duomo (main Cathedral) and the alla Scala Opera House.
