We pre booked our cycle tour on line, very simple process. Our guide was Daniella who was friendly, knowledgable and really engaging. We felt that we saw most of the main sights and were able to return to a couple of the places we visited. We covered a large area in the 3.5 hours and enjoyed the stop for a... More

He brings a genuine love for his city and his enthusiasm was infectious. This will be one of the highlights of our time in Milan. Seeing a lot of sights we would have missed, particularly some of the... More

The tour leads you to all the major places and sights. The guide tells lot of interesting facts. The bikes are in a good condition. It only would be better if the guide would drive just a little bit faster. Sometimes the group had problems to drive that slow.

The ride starts off going threw the new part of Milan with skyscrapers and modern buildings and 20 minutes later u are down town at a castle. Great knowledge of the city and worth doing.

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
