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.

Chiari gave an excellent tour of the history and origins of Milan. Her energy was excellent and made the tour more fun and interesting. If possible, I would recommend taking this tour at the start of your visit, as Chiari has many recommendations for food and activities around the city for the remainder of your stay.
