I'm an English teacher who has always had a passion for art and history. I have been living in Milan since I was a little kid, so I got to know my city well in all these years, thus giving you the local point of view. In the past few years, I decided I wanted to enjoy everything I had and that included this amazing city. Walking around Milan is like a treasure hunt: there is so much of everything and getting to put the puzzle of what I studied and learned in books together, makes me feel complete and as if I belong to this city.

Very well structured walk. Loved the St Ambroglio starting point to introduce Milan, paganism, Christianity and woolly pigs. Strawberry sweets lifesaver in the heat. Excellent way to be introduced to Milan
