It was easy to schedule our tour. Everything was explained in great detail, so there was no confusion on the day of the excursion. The vans were spotless and comfortable. Our guide for the Colosseum was exceptional in every way. He was cute, knowledgeable, witty, flexible and engaging. We met so wonderful folks and shared a wonderful lunch with the guys from our group. Could not have been happier with Quiiky.read more

What an outstanding trip put together by Eduardo! The guides we had in both Rome (Ulisse) and Naples (Andrea) were absolutely excellent - they both were extremely knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun! Our hotel accommodations were excellent choices, and conveniently located to many things we wanted to see. The entire experience was highly enjoyable and we would recommend this company without reservation to anyone (gay or straight) looking for a uniquely tailored vacation experience.read more

Thanks Claudio for a great alternative tour of the Vatican. Having visited back in 1999 I wanted something a little different to do with my husband who had never visited before. It was busy but Claudio ensured we avoided as many crowds as we could and his insights made it a light hearted and fun morning, still with all the essential details you need to appreciate the artworks. It is great to see tour Quiiky offering tours with a twist and can most definitely recommend this one for your next visit to Rome.read more

We adored our Quikky tour of the Vatican with our guide Claudio. We had been a little apprehensive about visiting the Vatican but this tour is the way to go! Claudio had an expert knowledge of the art collection and we enjoyed hearing the "other", more scandalous stories of the private lives of Michelangelo and the popes. We loved our visit to the museums, Sistine Chapel, grotto and St Peters - I recommend joining the queue and adding on the view from the dome of the basilica - well worth the stairs!read more

First had a wonderful pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Our guide was super friendly, knowledgeable, and a great deal of fun. Then I went on a tour of the Vatican and our tour guide was incredible. He is an expert on the Vatican and on the pertinent gay history (which turns out to be much more than you might even think). He literally made the Vatican come alive and provided one of the more fascinating tours I have taken anywhere. And the two wonderful owners of Quiiky picked us up and took us on a vehicular tour of Rome. Others got back from Rome complaining of the crowds and the heat... we got back energized, happy, and filled with fascinating information after an afternoon filled with fun and personalized care. Don't make the mistake thinking you will get an equivalent tour from a straight guide/company -- if you are gay, Quiiky is the way to go.read more

Excellent pre-cruise Quikky tour in Venice. Great guide who had so much intimate knowledge of Venice. Besides being very handsome he is a local resident for more than 2 decades with so much intimate knowledge that you can't get from a guidebook. This is my second time using Quikky for tours and transfers; they're my first choice in Italy!read more

Tour Details

On Leonardo da Vinci Footsteps

Visiting Milano will make you discover not only the city of Fashion but one of the places where Leonardo da Vinci lived.

This daily tour is perfect for those who want to know more about the private and artistic life of Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian genius of Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest painters in the history of art, also he was a scientist and inventor.

Our guide will reveal secrets and tidbits about his private life and try to make light on Da Vinci’s obscure life. Leonardo was famous for being very grumpy and misanthropic. During his life, Leonardo developed close relationships with his male students and one of his biggest stories, lasting almost 20 years, was with a “curly-haired youth” named Gian Giacomo de Caprotti also known as Salai (Lamb of Satan) due to his misbehaviour.

Canestra di frutta by Caravaggio
Rittatto di musico by Leonardo da Vinci

The day tour starts visiting the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana where The Atlantic Code, a twelve-volume collection with 1,119 pages of drawings and writings is kept. Here you will be able to see a lot of artwork and the sketches that Leonardo did for his inventions. Most of them were the base for the technology that we use nowadays. During the tour you will be able to see the painting “ritratto di musico” by Leonardo da Vinci and the “Canestra di frutta” by Caravaggio.

Sala delle Asse by Leonardo da Vinci

When Leonardo arrived in Milan he started to design military equipment for the Duke, Ludovico Sforza. His biggest creation at the Sforza Castle, residence of the Duke, was the ‘Sala delle Asse’, a project painting an astonishing ceiling. He also organized some events at the castle, using the machines he invented. The beauty of the scenery he created, left all the guests astonished.

The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

The most important moment is when you visit ‘The Last Supper’, the mysterious fresco which Dan Brown’s Bestseller “The Da Vinci Code” talks about. This mural, situated at the Church Santa Maria delle Grazie, is one of Leonardo’s biggest art works not only due to the tecniques but also for its psychological depth. Here you will see that Leonardo skillfully uses shadow and light to show the characters and what they represented. 

Leonardo did a lot of marvelous paintings during his life like the Mona Lisa, now in the Louvre in Paris, that some scholars think is the idealized version of the artist’s mother or even a self-portrait en travesti, as well as the androgynous St. John the Baptist from which Salai was his model.
