For the VIP treatment, book the hard-to-come-by private ‘Last supper Painting Tour: Da Vinci in Depth,’ which provides a coveted opportunity to view one of Leonardo da Vinci’s greatest works.

For a luxury experience, opt for a private Lake Como excursion, a full-day experience filled with incredible sights and eats. Gorgeous villas and historic cathedrals are just a taste of the experience as guides like Luisa, who holds a PhD in Political Science and History, applies her passions for the Renaissance to the experience while bridging history with today’s Milan.
