La Scala Opera Short Break

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Attend La Scala Opera in the best seats
  • Private Guided Tour of Duomo & Rooftop
  • Guided Visit of Santa Maria dell Grazie (The Last Supper)
  • 3 nights with breakfast in central 4 star hotel

For planning that once in a lifetime trip, you can do no better than a visit to La Scala, one of the best Opera houses in the world. With an eclectic mix of operas and ballets running most of the year round, there is something for everyone.

The other main site that Milan has to offer is "The Last Supper" painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. Incredibly this surivived heavy shelling during World War II, and can be visited but only if you can get hold of the often elusive tickets!

We are able to include this on your tailormade break, along with providing fantastic, knowledgeable local guides, ensuring you leave the city with all the main sites covered.

Milan is very situated for all types of holidays. If you want to have some time relaxing, Lake Maggiore is nearby, however, if you want more culture, Verona and Venice are very near too.

Day 1

Fly to Milan and Private Airport Transfer to your hotel
Fly to Milan and take your private airport transfer to your central 4 star hotel.

Rest of day at leisure.

Day 2

Private Guided Tour of Duomo with Rooftop and Last Supper
Today your private guide will meet you and take you for a tour of the Duomo. This gothic building was built in the 5th century and took almost six further centuries to complete. The tour is not complete without a trip onto the rooftop, allowing beautiful views across the city, where you will be surrounded by the Spires. The roof can be accessed either by lift or stairs.

Move on with your guide to Santa Maria della Grazie, the church that houses the world famous Leonardo di Vinci’s Last Supper painting. This mural painting has narrowly avoided two main disasters – the first the paint badly fading so the figures became unrecognisable, the second almost being destroyed during the bombing of World War II. This enigmatic painting has led to speculation that it is Mary and not John sitting to Jesus’ right.

Rest of day at leisure.
