Tour Details

Discover the Porta Nuova complex, its skyscrapers, from the Bosco Verticale to the Unicredit Tower. At the same time, you’ll get to know the historical face of the city, passing through Corso Como and via Mercato, until you reach the heart of old Milan, the district of the Cinque Vie with its hidden palazzi (buildings) and shops of the past.

Milan is home to architectural contrasts, and it’s even more fascinating to experience with an expert guide who can show you how contemporary architecture seeks a dialogue with the houses that characterized the neighborhood until the early 2000s.

The trees of Bosco Verticale by Stefano Boeri create an ever new atmosphere with the changing seasons and give a green profile to Milan that with this building in 2015 won the title of the Most Beautiful and Innovative Building in the World. The city ​​changed in 2014 when, with its spire pointing upwards, the Unicredit Tower by architect Cesar Pelli reached 231 meters in height. Porta Nuova is the contemporary square, designed for the meeting of the Milanese who can closely observe the profiles of the latest architecture, have fun with the jets of fountains on the ground and be fascinated by the noises of the city "playing" with Egg (the permanent installation by artist Alberto Garutti). Thanks to your guide, you’ll discover how these buildings were born, and why and how they fit into a neighborhood that until the 1990s was a working-class suburb that is one of the trendiest areas today. It all started thanks to 10 Corso Como... What makes the Milano between Past and Future tour special: understand and appreciate the two faces of Milan, with its ancient history and its contemporary soul.
