hidden milan design tour 1


Milan Gay Tours has conceived the Hidden Milan Tours as two complimentary parts, for who has already experienced the Highlights Tour but also for who would like to take a walk off the beaten tracks, even it is their first time in the city.  You can select them separately or together according to how much available time you have.

Milan is the undisputed European capital of design and the Salone del Mobile (furniture design fair) in April each year is THE unmissable event, when architecture and design enthusiasts from all over the world come to town to see what’s new and what’s what in the furniture and interior design fields. Milan also has several design institutions, such as the Triennale Design Museum, that has been a laboratory for design and contemporary arts since the 1930s and is located in the central Sempione park. Additionally, several corporate museums are out of town, creating a network of design and culture around Milan.

The design itinerary includes a visit to the Triennale and a tour of some experimental “archi-sculptural” installations set in the Sempione park and in piazzale Cadorna. As an additional service for those who really want to go deeper, we can take you to see the studios of some famous designers, such as the Casa Studio Castiglioni or Piero Fornasetti’s showroom. As another additional service, you can enrich the tour with the visit to the design shopping areas, such as via Durini and piazza San Babila, via Manzoni and the surroundings of piazza Cavour, where you can see Kartell, B&B, Meritalia, Artemide and many other shops. Last but not least, we propose as an additional service also a visit to Villa Necchi Campiglio, a luxurious residential complex planned at the beginning of the 1930’s that is a magnificent treasure of art and architecture in the centre of Milan.
