Meet at Milan’s central railway station before whizzing off on the 1-hour ride to Turin, the former capital of Italy. This amazing city boasts a dazzling concentration of world-class architecture, museums, piazzas, parks and monuments, as well as the famed Shroud of Turin. With artistic achievements spanning the Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neo-Classic and Art Nouveau, it shares the same elegant mood as great European capitals like Paris or Vienna, adding a dash of its own savoir-faire, and a healthy dose of its world famous gelato and chocolate.
Once arrived, this 2-hour stroll led by an expert local guide will unveil Turin’s charming and mysterious atmosphere. See favorites like Piazza San Carlo with its twin 17th century churches, bask in the dazzling aura of 19th century cafés and cover regal Turin in Piazza Castello, home to the city’s original castle, Palazzo Madama and the Royal Palace. Your guide will explain the city’s amazing history and legends, as well as give you tips on how to enjoy your free time for lunch and a visit to the Egyptian Museum of Turin, the second largest in the world. Then join your guide for a special chocolate and gelato tasting, and let your mouth water over succulent ‘gianduiotti’ or pralines followed by some of the best gelato Italy has to offer.
After an enlightening visit to Turin’s top sights and most tantalizing flavors, your guide will put you back on the high-speed train for the 1-hour return trip to Milan. You’ll have plenty of time to rest and freshen-up during the 2.5-hour break between the tours, then meet up with another expert local guide in Milan’s Piazza del Duomo for a relaxing sunset stroll covering its top monuments.
You’ll get to know Milan in a nutshell, thanks to the captivating stories your guide provides on the history and legends that make it so exceptional, all in the intimacy of a small group of no more than 15 people.
You’ll even get to sip on a Spritz or a glass of Prosecco as the sun goes down and the city lights up for another evening of style with one of its most famous pastimes – the ‘aperitivo’. We have organized a local evening tradition with appetizers for any fancy where you’ll soak up the atmosphere on an elegant rooftop terrace taking in the breathtaking views of Milan Cathedral, known locally as the ‘Duomo’, and the city’s historic center.
In addition to marveling at the spires of this Gothic masterpiece, your city walk will cover the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a dazzling 19th century glass vaulted shopping arcade, Piazza della Scala, where the renowned Scala Theatre stands, and the fashionable Brera District, until picturesque streets lead you to your last stop, Sforza Castle, where your guide will tell you bewitching tales of this medieval fortress bathed in its evocative evening lights.
No other combo tour offers such an intimate and comprehensive look into the amazing cities of Milan and Turin, where you’ll see the sights as well as get to know their traditions, flavors and pastimes.
