Italy is much more than a just a portal to the old country. This exciting two and-a-half hour tour of Milan by night allows the opportunity to see firsthand Milan's newest and most modern district, and Italy's foremost foray into the future! Experience it on board a modern segway!
The tour starts with a short orientation on the segway at our central location. Once you are comfortable and confident riding a segway, your English-speaking tour leader will escort you to a historic and central town square, the Piazza 25 Aprile. From there your journey begins, stepping from the history of Milan to the modern Milan, and to the bold vision of Milan's – and Italy's – future.
This historic, but not ancient, Piazza 25 Aprile is home to the arch of Porta Garibaldi, and connects to the Porta Garibaldi railway station, a more modern part historical addition to Milan. It is a busy place for commuters and pedestrians, and during the night time is no different.
You will feel like you've just unlocked the secrets of time travel as you glide through the old and into the new. Watch as the skyline transforms from an aging but charming collection of buildings into the sleek, modern skyscrapers of tomorrow. Your will admire Milan's newest developments and the innovative designs and concepts being brought to life in the city, and the architects responsible for such dramatic and powerful structures.
You will see the Bosco Verticale, a Vertical Forest, designed to not only to house people, but to house a forest of trees to help produce more oxygen, mitigate smog, and soften the noise of the city. This unique pair of condos that double as an urban forest can only be found in Milan.
Milan's revitalized urban interior includes the Diamond Tower. A sparkling example of Italy's commitment to its future, the tower is faceted and angled to produce the diamond-like structure. The walls, primarily glass with steel supports, shines elegantly and spectacularly, reflecting the night-lights of the city in a starry night sky.
Likely the highlight of the evening, you will be escorted to the foot of the Unicredit Tower, the tallest skyscraper in Milan and in Italy. The dramatic curve and sleek, modern elegance of the massive structure is striking. You will no doubt be struck in awe in taking in this modern, bold statement of Milan's - and Italy's - future.
