You start to feel overwhelmed because there is so much to see you don't know where to start. You realized all the stereotypes about this city were true: everyone is in a rush, traffic is crazy, and food is not good.
That's when your Scuola Leonardo da Vinci comes to the rescue!
Milan is best-known for its iconic gothic Duomo Cathedral, the world-famous Scala Theatre and the medieval Sforza castle. But there is so much more than that!
Most people say 3 days is the time needed to visit Milan. We say one week is barely enough. Milan is not an obvious beauty: it's a city you can properly enjoy only if you embrace it. Our aim is not only to teach you the most romantic language in the world but also to make you enjoy our gorgeous city as a local – That is why every week you'll get to take part in our unique free-time activities which will help you grasp the essence of Milan!
Milan is a walkable city. It's not as big as other European capitals and it's divided into small but secret-packed districts. Admire the dozens of art workshops in the artists' district of Brera, or find out how the Navigli district has transformed from a working-class suburb to the city's coolest neighborhood, or enjoy a walk through the oldest area of Milan called Cinque Vie.
