Milan is a very small city but with so much history, fashion and food. It is also excellent for walking with such attractive tourist destinations.  When you start touring Milan, start with the more significant places like the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emmanuel II before going to the less significant ones. Most of these important places are located at the city center which is just right beside each other.  It can be easily toured within a day and you can tour it by yourself. A tour guide is not anymore necessary because Tourist places are self-explanatory. .  One must also experience to eat authentic Italian Pizza, Pasta, Raviolli and Gelato. You can find authentic restaurants in all of Milan. Prices may range from 20 to 100 Euros per person.  I recommend that you go to Milan for a day since there are only few places to visit here compared to other cities in Italy.
