Obviously a visit to The Last Supper. Not sure if you need to book tickets in advance these days, it’s nearly 20 years since I went!

Go on the roof of the cathedral.
Tour of La Scala
Tour of the San Siro if they do that.
Have gelato in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
It's a great city.

Definitely the roof of the Duomo.
There is also an art gallery inside the castle which is really good. We had a guide who told us about the different period painters showing Jesus in different ways - as a baby, as a toddler etc. It was really interesting.
The Last Supper was OK but I wouldn't say it was a 100% must do.

Getting to see the fresco of the Last Supper was a spine chilling moment for me, especially considering the story of how it survived the bombing in the War.
Walking about on the roof of the Cathedral _ awesome but I was 40yrs younger. I'm not sure I could do it now!!

The Last Supper is truly amazing, but book well in advance.
It's sometimes possible to do a tour of La Scala, which is interesting too.
