Then pedal on to Brera, its streets flanked by historic houses and churches, and marvel at the imposing Sforza Castle, a fortress from the late medieval and Renaissance era. Learn about the history of the structure and how it was built for the first duke of Milan in the 14th-century. 

Other stops include the trendy Ticinese district and Colonne di San Lorenzo, the oldest Roman ruins in Milan. Before finishing the tour, stop at the famed Duomo, Milan's glorious Gothic cathedral, and learn about the building's history.

Evening Tour (3 hours):

Take the evening tour and be prepared to be dazzled by the twinkling lights and lit-up landmarks of Milan. Marvel at the Duomo and the intimidating Sforza Castle. See all the spots that are on the morning and afternoon tours, such as Palazzo Regione Lombardia, Piazza Gae Aulenti, Brera and Piazza della Scala.

Mialn is very busy, so sometimes this bike ride can be a little harried. Overall, it is very fun. WE had a really bice tour guide. I had already been in Milan for three weeks and done many tours, but I still saw more, doifferent neighborhoods, etc. I recommend. Not physically challenging, but a nice litle bit of exercise.

Fun and fascinating tour of some historical and architectural highlights in Milan. 3.5hrs went by in a flash. Would have loved a full day tour to see more neighborhoods. Really liked our guide. Gave us some excellent tips on areas to visit without trying to shill for merchants (and getting a kickback).

This is a great activity and an excellent way to have an idea about Milan. If you take he morning tour then you can walk (15 minutes) to the Duomo and maybe shopping in Buenos Aires section. We got lucky as Milan literally stops during mid August and there is little to no traffic. Robert did an excellent job in his calmed style and by sharing the right amount of information. My wife and I had a great time and we highly recommend the tour

My 2 friends and I had a great time with Paulo on our tour of Milan. He was informative and took us to all the sites we should see such as The Duomo, the Castle, Sports Stadium and up to the new city and the vertical forest which is amazing! He made the tour very enjoyable and I would highly recommend it. Thanks, Paul C.

The bike tour covered a number of areas of the city and took in the major sites. This is a great way to get a feel for the city so you can go back and explore particular sites, like the Duomo and La Scala, which I did later in the day. Our guide was enthusiastic about the history of Milan and very knowledgeable.

Milan has many interesting sites to visit and it is relatively easy and safe to navigate by bike. So, I would consider this an ideal way to learn and exercise. There were only 4 of us so it was almost a Private Tour. Our guide was well knowledgeable of the terrain and route. History was adequate. Recommend.

We spent an enjoyable 3 hours cycling around Milan. It was a good way to learn about the city and the places we wanted to go back to and explore on foot. The guide we had was great, he had studied art history at University and was very knowledgeable about the history of Milan. A really good morning thank you!

Likely the best way to see Milan! The tour allows you to see many locations to give you a more complete appreciation of the city. One note of caution: adults in Milan rarely wear helmets, so either bring your own helmet or prepare to wear a vintage style.
