Goudin Ludovic was our guide for the Best of Milan tour
Sunday, day 9
We started the day by returning to the Piazza del Duomo on the Metro. After a quick breakfast at a restaurant in the Galleria we headed over to the Vittorio Emanuele II Statue in Piazza. At least we assume it was there, the statue is currently covered by scaffolding and the restoration is expected to continue until late October.
We were there for LastSupperTickets' "Best of Milan" tour and were met by our guide and a technician who outfitted all of us with receivers and ear buds for the tour. Our guide was a young French man who is living in Milan, Goudin Ludovic.
With this being a Sunday, the tour could not go inside the Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral). That was part of the reason that we visited the Cathedral on our own on the day before. But Goudin did take us around the outside of the church and give us more background which we had not learned on the day before. He used a tablet computer to show us images to better explain the history.
The tour also went through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II before leaving the immediate area of the Piazza del Duomo.
The headphone worked fairly well, but did hurt the interaction between the tour guide and the people taking the tour. I think it would have been good if we had gone in the cathedral, but it probably reduced the quality of the overall tour.
