Context Travel has re-launched its services and tour products in Milan, introducing new immersive tours in the destination aligned to market demand, hosted by an expanded crop of expert guides who provide a unique insider lens to the city. With new experiences that take clientele above and beyond the status quo, ranging from a rare, highly-coveted private tour of Leonardo da Vinci’s famed Last Supper painting to a luxurious private Lake Como excursion, Context is providing clients with a new perspective on one of its most requested destinations.
Among its new offerings in the destination are experiences in fashion, art and history, alongside enhanced signature cultural tours. Context employs its distinct private, intimate tour and expert guide format to provide an unexpected perspective on the offered experiences. When booking the hard-to-come-by private ‘Last supper Painting Tour: Da Vinci in Depth,’ tour, clients may be led by Giacomo, who holds a degree in Preservation of Cultural Heritage, with a specialization in Medieval Art. With his insider knowledge, he will help unearth the painting’s deepest secrets, while allowing participants to discover hidden spots in Milan even locals are unfamiliar with, alongside cherished attractions including Santa Maria delle Grazie, the 15th century convent and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
“Milan has been and continues to be one of our most in-demand destinations,” said Evan Frank, CEO of Context Travel, “and it was crucial for us to expand and enhance our offerings to give travelers a refreshed perspective on this vibrant Italian city. We very much look forward to introducing our new expert guides and having travelers discover even more unique experiences in the destination.”
Travelers can also book a luxurious private Lake Como excursion, offering a full-day experience filled with breathtaking sights and delightful eats. Among the tour’s many highlights are the expert guides and the personal insights they lend to the tour. One expert guide is Luisa, who holds a PhD in Political Science and History and applies her passions for the Renaissance to the experience, while putting traditions, uses and moral codes of the past in perspective with today’s Milan. Among the sights of this excursion are visits to the historic Villa Erba, Villa D’Este and Villa Oleandra, as well as the Como Cathedral and the Church of San Giovanni Battista, which is home to frescos that date back to the 14th century.
Fashionable travelers can book the new ‘Alta Moda: Fashion in Milan’ tour led by native fashion insiders like Federica, whose career has seen her working with the likes of Prada, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and others. While learning about Milan’s history in fashion, clients will experience some of the city’s top shopping locales, from the likes of Emporio Armani to the renowned fashion hubs of Montenapoleone, Via Sant’Andrea and Via della Spiga, among other exciting fashion-focused neighborhoods.
Alongside the new offerings, travelers can rediscover enhanced signature tours such as the ‘Introduction to Milan’ and ‘Savoring Milan Food Tour,’ providing fresh looks at the city’s rich cultural and culinary scenes respectively. Additionally, travelers can experience Milan through a nighttime aperitivo experience, book a Duomo Rooftop tour offering a unique vantage point over the city, and more.
