Guided tour of Teatro alla Scala and Milan Cathedral

La Scala Theatre, known in Italian as Teatro alla Scala, is a world-renowned opera house in Milan. The theatre was inaugurated on 3 August 1778 and was originally known as the New Royal-Ducal Theatre at La Scala. Since its opening, many of Italy's greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala during the past 200 years. Today, the theatre is still recognised as one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world and is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet and La Scala Theatre Orchestra.

Milan Cathedral, known as Duomo di Milano in Italian, is the cathedral church of Milan. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Cardinal Angelo Scola. The Gothic cathedral, which is known for its love-it-or-hate-it facade, took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the fourth largest cathedral in the world and by far the largest in Italy.

This tour allows you to enjoy a fully guided tour of both La Scala and the Cathedral, allowing you to make the most of your time in Milan and see two of the city's most important monuments.
