We are glad to offer a guided tour of our ancient University on Tuesday early afternoon for those of you who will spend some more time in Milano.
Milano is a safe and vibrant city, full of cultural attractions. Everything is at hand, and public transportation is very reliable and cheap (a 24 hours ticket costs € 4,50; a 48 hours ticket € 8.25). We also have a Bike Sharing service, also avaible for occasional subscribers (BikeMi).
For those who will spend some additional day in Milano we do reccommend to book in advance a ticket for Leonardo’s ‘The Last Supper’ at Santa Maria delle Grazie; a combo ticket is also available to visit both Leonardo’s masterpiece and the Brera Art Gallery, one of the treasures of our city (website).
Close to the Santa Maria delle Grazie is Sant’Ambrogio, where Augustine went and listened to Ambrose’s sermons... (website).
The actual building of Palazzo Reale is due to the famous architect Giuseppe Piermarini. Today is an important centre for exhibitions. It is on the right side of the Duomo, the cathedral of Milano. Piermarini also projected our famous Teatro alla Scala.
Consider, then, that in an hour by train you can easily reach the Lake of Como.
