MILAN TOURS

Milan is much more that the Capital of fashion, design and business. Now the cosmopolitan Milan is, for many travelers from all around the world, the gateway to Italy at its best: an unparalleled blend of inspiring art and architecture, ancient to contemporary, cool hang-outs and good life, invigorated by one of the world’s finest cuisine.

Our Bike & The City® tour was born in 2011 to reveal by bicycle the unknow architectural beauty, artistic richness and culture appeal of the city Milan, as well as its greener facade.

It not imaginable now how at that time, before Expo 2015, Milan was considered a bit more than just a layover to get the most famous Italian destinations, or merely a fashionable shopping spot and a business must-be place, before quickly heading to near lakes Maggiore, Como and Garda or the Dolomites mountains or the more famous touristic cities of Venice, Florence and Rome.

We are now the first and original Bike Tour of Milan, pluriannual TripAdvisor Winner Certificate of Excellence. We are proud and happy to offer, every year to thousands of people from all around the world, an authentic experience of Milan and to continue contributing in making Milan known for much more than clichés.

Our itineraries are made to show you how much Milan is blessed with a rich architectural heritage as well as how lively and in continuous transformation is the city, where ancient and contemporary literally fight to get travelers attention for their common high artistic value and beauty.

You will also feel, in crowded streets full of shops and activities, the pragmatic, hands-on, business-oriented mentality of the Milanese and at the same time, by taking a sneak-peaks into the hidden courtyards and little cozy restaurants, you get evidence of their attention to crafted details, design, art, food, beauty and joy of life.

BIKE & MILAN SUNSET
Pedaling smoothly into the Sunset mood

Around 6.30 pm, when our bike tour starts, Milan is in the middle of an everyday makeover.

A city that it is famously productive, business focused and fast-paced, little-by-little becomes quieter and slower, light turns warmer and colors vividly various and captivating.

It’s then that cocktail bars, vineries, various venues all around the city open the doors to their folks: they are about to celebrate the daily social myth and ritual of meeting friends, colleagues and loved ones, leaving the stress of the day behind, sipping a beer, a glass of wine or a Negroni paired with a variable amount of free food.

During the so-called Aperitivo time, we ride together across the city in a unique and magic atmosphere, enjoying a little breeze after a sunny warm Milanese summer day and experiencing a more relaxing soundstracks of the city.

E-BIKE & MILAN ARCHITECTURES

To say it with our Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, “coming to Milan is unique and immersive Experience”. Milan is the most important laboratory of modern and contemporary architecture in Italy: “mobility, architecture and urban planning are depicting a greener city that offers a better quality of life to its inhabitants and a more and more beautiful city for its visitors” and we are eager to show you why.

Our ride starts from the ancient Ticinese discrict from where we saddle up on a premium design and technology e-bike by the Pirelli CYCL-e around™ e-bike rental service.

We head to the brutalist Torre Velasca by BBPR very controversial landmark of the city. Then cycling beside the University of Milan and former Hospital Ca’ Granda, we reach piazza Fontana where the first public fountain by Giuseppe Piermarini was built in Milan and then the Duomo square where we focus on the building designed by Griffini, Magistretti, Muzio, and Portaluppi and recently renovated by the Rota Group: Palazzo Arengario now Museo del Novecento (XX Century Museum).

This stop give us also the permission to make a journey back in the beginning of XX century imagining us sipping our original Campari Seltz or Negroni at Camparino where artist and intellectuals as the Futurist Marinetti e Boccioni but also professionals and individuals were used to stop and drink and have a small chat at the end of the day, in the magic hours of Aperitivo.

Back to contemporary time we ride thorough the shopping pedestrian street of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and stop to admire the new life of Piazza del Liberty where the great work of Norman & Foster studio has combined commercial architecture (Apple store) and urban décor.

With San Babila at our back, we finally enter the district of Silence with its astonishing Nouveau and Eclectic Architectures e we stop in the XX century domestic architectural masterpiece Villa Necchi Campiglio. Climbing on Porta Venezia bastioni on our execellent e-bikes we will head to the new area of Porta Nuova not before seeing one of the first skyscraper of the city the so called Pirellone by Gio Ponti. From now on you will have the impression to visit another era of the city even if you will feel the Milanese personality as a fil rouge: Palazzo Lombardia, Biblioteca degli Alberi, Unicredit tower, Bosco Verticale  Fondazione Feltrinelli, a paradise for architecture passionate. After a quick stop in Simplon park to see the Triennale and Torre Branca by Gio Ponti again we will ride towards the CityLife new neighborhood with the architecture of Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Arata Isozaki. Time to go back to the meeting point with the camera full of photo and emotions.

WHAT OUR HAPPY CLIENTS SAY

FUN MORNING

 I went to Milan with my 16 year old daughter – we both enjoyed this tour. I haven’t been on a bike for some years and am middle aged, overweight and rather unfit, I found the bike easy to ride – even managed the couple of small hills (I mean small) – 99% was on the flat. We stopped at regular intervals to hear stories about Milan and its history, found the places we wanted to visit again and explore further. It was very sociable, enjoyed meeting the others in our party. Most of the ride was in cycle lanes, parks and pedestrianised areas. Had fun 🙂

AWE INSPIRING TOUR

Silvia, our guide, was extremely attentive and made sure my two teenage boys were constantly engaged. The bikes were sparkly brand-new. She was considerate at all times putting safety first. I believe a 10 year old would have a marvelous time doing the tour as safety was put first.Its a charming way to get feel for such a big city and leaves you with ideas of places to go back and explore further. In a nutshell highly recommendable.
