About The City Sightseeing Milan Tour:
The City Sightseeing Milan tour is a flexible hop-on hop-off bus service that lets you explore the sights of Milano at your own pace for either 1-day or 48-hours. There's 3 routes to discover (A, B & C) and tickets are valid from the moment they are first used. The buses run all year round with seasonal variations on certain lines (see left column).
'Hop-on Hop-off' means that you're free to leave and rejoin the buses at any stop. If a particular landmark grabs your attention simply disembark at the closest point and explore up-close with the free City Sightseeing Milan walking tour app (downloadable on-board).
While aboard the buses you can choose to sit on the open-top upper deck or on the sheltered lower deck. Regardless of where you're seated you'll be treated to on-board commentary about the history and culture of Milan via a multi-lingual audio guide. A special kids channel is also available on Lines A & B.

City Sightseeing have three colour coded bus tour routes throughout Milan. The central red route (A Line) encompasses all of the city's classic historical landmarks, such as La Scala Opera House, the striking Galleria Vittorio arcade, and the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie- home to Leonardo da Vinci's famous mural 'The Last Supper'.
The blue route (Line B) ventures into Milan's modern business centre. This district is easily identifiable by its towering skyscrapers and vibrant shopping areas. Don't miss a chance to explore the Palazzo Lombardia, an ultra-modern complex of high rise buildings which serve as the seat of the government of Lombardy. At stop 5 we'd also highly recommend hopping-off at Piazza della Repubblica, a grand boulevard which will act as an ideal spot to orientate yourself if you plan on taking a wander.
The green route (Line C) reaches out north-west of the city centre, where it ultimately arrives at San Siro Stadium. This place is home to both A.C. Milan and F.C. Internazionale Milano, making it a popular stop with football fans. While travelling to and from this highlight attraction you will also meet with the opportunity to see Casa Milan (A.C. Milan Museum), Cimitero Monumentale di Milano, and the Corso Vercelli shopping area.
