Best of Milan Walking Tour with Skip-the-Line to Duomo & ‘Last Supper’

1,277 reviews
More than 1,000 people visit Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper every day. Not surprisingly, visitors spend a lot of time waiting in for tickets and admission. On this walking tour of Milan, you’ll get skip-the-line admission to see the painting so you’ll have plenty of time to see rest of the city’s sights, including the Duomo and Sforza Castle. A small group means plenty of time for questions.

A very relaxing place with nice towns and broad lakeside promenades. Towns of Stress and Aroma on the Italian side of the lake are nice tourist type towns which are relaxed and pleasant places to stay or visit. There are plenty of nice gardens around the lake and on the islands of the lake. The Maggiore Express is a nice trip into Switzerland and takes a full day with the boat back from Locarno. All in all a nice place to visit with as much or as little to da as you want.

Beautiful views , not as busy as Lake Garda but not as interesting. Food and drink was expensive. trip on the railway to Switzerland was lovely , along with the boat trip back down the lake to Stresa.

We stayed in Lake Maggiore in late July and were surprised it was not very crowded, very peaceful. Nice slow pace. We stayed in a villa for 3 nights, 2 full days on the shores of Lake Maggiore. This was a fantastic location. On our first day we headed to the Cable Car at Stressa to the top of Mount Mottarone. It was a great way to see the lakes and regions. We then took a boat to Isola pescatoria & Bella. These were great islands and good to have a look around both have cafes and restaurants, souvenirs etc. Our second day was a visit to see the beautiful gardens and zoo, Parco Pallavincino, well worth a visit. Spent about 2 hours there. We then took an afternoon drive up coast towards Swiss border, having lunch in a seaside town along the way. Of an evening we were spoilt for choice, the lakeside restaurants serve up beautiful local cuisine with seafood a speciality. Bellisimo!

The Lake Maggiore is definitely a must-see if you happen to be in the north of Italy. You can visit from Milan. A nice way to discover a bit of this lake is to start from Stresa and book a ferry day ticket to visit the three Borromeans islands. Plan a day. Enjoy!

Visited with partner for a week. We were absolutely bowled over by the views and experiences here. We stopped at Stresa which was convenient as very close to chair lift & boat docks, although they go from most areas I believe. There is a lovely walkway that mostly we could walk from our hotel to the centre of the town. Lovely old building along the way to look at if you can drag your eyes away from the lake views. Was clean looking as well. Plenty of boats to catch to the various islands. Weather was very hot but didn't deter us from going out as plenty of seats to take a rest & plenty of cafes. Good areas if you want to have a swim or sunbathe at the edge of the lake.
