The second day of the trip is dedicated to the visit of the Milan EXPO, which begins on 1 May 2015 and ends on 31 October 2015. It's an Universal Exhibition, an event that is non-commercial, which includes various thematic routes and insights around the central theme of this edition of "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life". A crucial issue for the future of the Earth, but also a great opportunity to promote the excellence of Made in Italy internationally.

In the third and last day we will focus to visit the center of Milan on foot and by private bus, between the buildings and the most important monuments to see. Will enter into the famous Teatro della Scala, seat of the Opera House in Milan since 1778. The most famous musicians and singers in the world performed here, and some of the most famous works of Verdi were represented for the first time in this theater .
We will discover the fascinating Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, with its nineteenth-century vaults of crystal, that are the backdrop to shops and trendy cafes, just call the "living room of Milan".
We will visit the Castello Sforzesco, the imposing medieval fortress, once the residence of the noble family Sforza who governed the city. Obviously we don't lose the entrance to one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world and the symbol of Milan, the Duomo. But our guided tour focuses on the visit to one of the most famous masterpieces of world art, the "Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci, in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. With our tour, you will have access to secured and no queues at the painting!
And then, you can't get away from Milan without you walked in the "fashion quadrilateral", the shopping streets in Milan or taking a drink at the busy Milan Navigli area, the ancient canals built during the Renaissance, surrounded low buildings and paintings of bright colors; or having strolled through the small street of the Brera district, northwest of the city, a meeting place for artists and writers. In this area there is the Palazzo of Brera, which inside contains the Brera Art Gallery, which displays some of the major works by Mantegna, Tintoretto, Piero della Francesca, Raffaello and Caravaggio.
