Chiara was an absolutely amazing tour guide! She is very knowledgeable of the history of Milano, and brought the stories to life with a lot of character. In addition to the history, she also had tons of recommendations for what to see and where to eat. We wouldn't have gotten tickets to see the Last Supper without her help! Her tour route included plenty of places to sit and stay out of the sun, so I would recommend it to people with slow mobility. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to the city!

From beginning to end, Chiara's energy & passion was fully evident! She took historical events & told fascinating stories. It was like a theatre performance. So, it was not just dates & facts that Chiara gave us, but she was retelling these events in a very animated way. I was coming into Milan by train -- from 24 hours before, she was updating us in a personable manner. Finally, Chiara also contacted us all with details on where we could eat, which cafes were open, what other galleries to visit (etc) I deeply appreciated all that she did, and I highly recommend Chiara to you!

By far the best walking tour I've ever done, and I've been to a lot! Chiara was very knowledgeable, professional and a fantastic tour guide. Look no further, this is hands down the best walking tour in Milan!
