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.

I was in Milan just for one day, but thanks to this walking tour I got to see and learn many things.

Not only did the guide show us the touristy stuff, but also many hidden places, that alone I would never see or comprehend.

It wasn't a boring history lesson, instead it was an explanation full with stories, legends, jokes and deep messages.

Loved the energy of the guide, you could see she enjoyed herself and her city.

Because it was a small group, the tour was more personal and we got to ask many questions. She recommended the best Gelato I have ever had! 100% recommend

Enjoyed a LOT the tour, nice small group (6p). Chiara was very friendly with good jokes and knows what she is talking about. Throughout the tour you could see her personal touch, passion about her city, knowledge and connection between past and present in her stories. Great tips of things to see and eat around the city!

We loved it!

Had a great morning with chiara

The tour is interesting, funny, not the usual history class tours.

On top of all she sends a really strong message of accepting and loving each other.

I strongly recommend to book that tour!

Great Tour! The guide was a cheerful, funny and knowledgeable person. She answered all my questions (and I had a lot of them) and gave us useful tips for when you visit the city.

Very good recommendations, and the gelato she suggested was the best I have ever had.

Do this tour on your first day! You will not regret it.
