Which can be very important, especially those with anxiety and fear of the dark. As you go deeper into the building, you will start to appreciate this unique opportunity to experience the world using your other senses.

The mission behind Dialogue in the Dark Milan is simple. Sometimes, we do not pay much attention to the things around us because we take them for granted. It is an experience that everyone should do. It could surely change you, it allows you to use all your senses and maybe even think differently. It will give you a better understanding how people live who do not have the use of sight.
After the guided tour, go enjoy an aperitivo. They serve drinks and appetizers, all in the darkness, with a person playing the piano in the background. They also offer dinner in the dark on Saturday nights.
TIP: They do not provide an English speaking tour guide unless there is a group of eight or more. It is also important for you to book ahead of time.
