As Expert of History and History of art I am proud to claim that Italy starting from 1400 is the cradle of Renaissance,
Renaissance was the highlight for centuries all Europeans countries, French, English tried without success to copy our beauties.
At that time Italy was divided in different Kingdoms, Counties and so on.
All Kings Dukes, Lords, once they received important foreigner enjoyed to impress them not only in terms of monuments, Palaces, gardens, paintings and sculptures also in terms of food and wine.
With my personal experience you will discover secret Milan city district and and at the end of tour we will stop in a typical place/ trattoria where we will have wine and food tasting.
