In the past few years, I decided I wanted to enjoy everything I had and that included this amazing city.

Amazing tour. Chiara is so enthusiastic that you feel like you are taken back in the history of time. I enjoyed every minute of the tour. After the tour, she specifically wrote to all of us the interesting spots of places to see and foods to try, together with the photos and full addresses. She highlighted the free museums which are worth visiting, and when and how to go about getting discounted tickets to Opera House “Teatro all a Scala” at €10-15. I had a fulfilling stay in Milan from all the tips :)
The tour was really detailed and Chiara was well-prepared to show us all important places and stories of Milano even when we faced some difficulties due to ongoing celebrations. Chiara also provided us with exceptional tour guide what to see and eat in Milano if you are staying for few days in the city.
Ottimo tour, simpatico e professionale. Milano vista con gli occhi appassionati di una milanese! Lo consiglio vivamente.
