SEGWAY PT ITINERARY IN MILAN’S HISTORICAL CENTRE!
8 participants maximum
Participants meet at Sforza Castle, in front of via Giovanni Lanza –GPS 45°28’14.9"N 9°10’51.7"E- and start Segway PT tour by crossing the strikingly huge Army Courtyard, to reach the Ducal Court, residential area at the time of Ludovico il Moro. From here tour proceeds through ancient “Barchio”, the XVth century hunting ground of the milanese ducal family which develops on the former countryside part of the Castle and that is presently known as Simplon Park.
After skirting the “Mermaids Bridge”, the “Triennale Museum” planned by architect Giovanni Muzio will come in view together with the “Branca Tower” by Giò Ponti: two important examples of Milan’s 20th century architecture. So this route conducts, in our intentions, through Milan history since Reinassance to XX century.
A ride on the Branca Tower’s lift gives a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline and an unusual perspective of buildings and sites that characterize Milan such as the Cathedral, the Stadium, the Pirelli skyscraper and the XIX century changes in the residential area surrounding the Castle.
From the ancient Merchants’ Square the imposing structure of the Cathedral looms in the distance. After a glimpse towards the spires and the gold plated Madonnina statue, placed on the tallest one, we will proceed along via S. Radegonda and via Tommaso Marino to reach Piazza S. Fedele. Here we can admire the statue of XIX century poet and novelist Alessandro Manzoni and the rear facade of Milan’s XVI century City Hall.
We will then move towards Piazza della Scala where the famous Opera house La Scala Theatre stands with its sober Neoclassical façade.
We will finally return to piazza Duomo, via Mercanti, piazza Cordusio, via Dante and largo Cairoli so as to end the tour at the of Sforza Castle’s Filarete Tower.
