How fascinating can it be to discover Milan with a tour by vintage tram?
Milan at subset is perhaps even more beautiful and magical, with the pink lights that reflect on the marble of the Duomo and above the roofs of the elegant verandas where you can sip a glass of Franciacorta wine at aperitif time…
That’s not all, Milan is always beautiful, especially when you can enjoy its marvels “on the move”, enveloped by the old-fashioned comfort of a vehicle from the past.
What do you say to plunging into the atmosphere of the early years of the 20th century, with a tour of the streets of Milan on board one of the vintage trams of the city, reliving the Milan of the 1920s?
There are several tours that you can do on board a vintage tram, from the evening one, wrapped up in soft warm rugs, to fully relish the Christmas atmosphere in the city, to the one ready to delight your palate with a dish of the traditional Milanese risotto, saffron yellow in colour, skilfully cooked by our chef.
