  • Discover Milan 3-Hour Guided Bike Ride

    1. Discover Milan 3-Hour Guided Bike Ride

    Ride a stylish bike with a friendly guide to see many of the interesting sights in Milan. On this 3.5-hour guided tour you’ll be accompanied across Milan by a local guide and visit places you’d normally miss on typical city tours. You’ll begin by taking in the main attractions, and then ride away from the tourist area of the noisy and busy city center to an aristocratic residential area, where you’ll see the hidden treasures of Milan. When it’s time for a break you’ll stop at a typical Italian bar. If it’s early in the day you can enjoy a cup of Italian coffee or homemade ice cream. If your stop is later in the day, you might want to try a traditional Milanese cocktail.

    Paulina was a great tour guide with a knowledge on the history of Milan and the current design of a modern city. We really liked the tour

But what is even better than that is he gave us additional travel tips for our trip to Milan & said that if we had any questions to just text him.
