ON BOARD OF THE WELL-KNOWN HISTORICAL MILANESE TRAMS!

Loved, criticised but anyway a symbol of our city: the trams! More than 150 trams still circulate in the streets of Milan, mostly from the 1500 series, called “Ventotto” or “Perteghette” and built between 1928 and 1932 on a project by Peter Witt: they were so much appreciated in San Francisco during the exhibition of vintage cars that some carriages were there exported, and today they are still used by citizens. The old trams with rails and raised wires are part of the history of Milan, and they are in the heart of the most nostalgic citizens. They are intended as carriages that date back to the early twentieth century, true jewels of craftsmanship and loaded of elegance, with the warm and shiny woods of the benches and the suffused lamps.

  • Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
  • Price: 40 Euros

URBAN TREKKING: FROM THE “NEW MILAN”, TO THE “OLD MILAN”

A walk to discover the “new Milan”, the one of Skyscrapers to then land to the “ancient Milan” of the historical center. How not to stop and observe what was designated, in 2015, the most beautiful skyscraper of the world? This is the now famous Bosco Verticale by the architect Boeri. From here we will land in Piazza Gae Aulenti, where stands the Unicredit Skyscraper, the heart of the new area and of the redevelopment of the areas surrounding the districts of Garibaldi, Isola and Varesine. This square is attended at all hours, by the most varied public; it is a meeting point, a departure for a long walk, an almost all pedestrian square, up to the historic center. We will end the visit with the Salita sui Tetti (Climb up to the Roofs) of the Galleria to admire the suggestive glimpses of the old Milan.

  • Duration: 3 hours
  • Price: 35 Euros

SAILING, SWEETLY SAILING: NAVIGLI BY BOAT

From our boat we will be able to see small corners of the old Milan with a picturesque and dreamy flavour. We will admire the church of San Cristoforo, composed of two coupled churches, dating back to 13th and 15th centuries. We will immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of the new Darsena, a precious corner of Milan, finally returned to its citizens.

  • Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
  • Price: 40 Euros
