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.

About the tour

Milan is very beautiful but a lot of places have very long and boring descriptions. This is the perfect tour for a first day in the city to understand what it's all about.

Chiara is quirky and knows how to tell a story. She really puts so much energy in the tour and we all had fun.

I loved seeing so much in such a short span of time.
