We had been on the Day trip to Lake Como the previous day and was lucky to get our same guide- Corrado! An exceptional guide that walked us around Milan with the aid of audio guides so he wasn't shouting and you could hear wherever you were!! The "last Supper" was superb and no waiting so worth the trip. Highly recommended tour!!
Last but not least on that tour, you get to go in for your 15 minutes of fame, or at least contact, with that famous fresco, and the tour guide explains the painting in detail.
There are 3 different routes, and the ticket is good for 48 hours, which is perfect as you can get one the first afternoon & use it then the next day and even the following day till it expires. It was perfect to get a general idea of the city (save the 3rd route, out to soccer arena for a rainy day as there's not much to see on that route). Then later, use either of the first two routes to hop off & on again at places you want to visit or explore. Great value.
