HI! My name is Elena and I am an official guide in Italy. I love my tour guide job. I'm sure that every city, every place, beyond its history and culture, has its charm and certainly its secrets.

Tour description

Welcome to Milan!
One of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Located in the province of Lombardy, it is home to a great history, splendid buildings and monuments that we will discover during the tour.
In my historical tour of the center of Milan, I reveal its secrets, which it has many considering its age of over 2000 years , and try to show its charm that once attracted invaders and today is one of the tourist centers. I do all this by demonstrating its historic center architecture and telling its true story not anecdotes, because history can be fun too!

NB: if you want to take part in the tour but don't find availability you can write to me and we will find a solution.

In the itinerary we will visit some of the main highlights of the city, such as:

  • Cathedral
  • Royal Palace
  • Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery
  • Via dei Mercanti/Piazza Mercanti, the center in medieval times
  • Piazza San Sepolcro/The Forum of Milan
  • Piazza degli Affari/The Roman Theater of Milan
  • Cordusio Square
  • Dante Street
  • Buonaparte Forum
  • Sforzesco Castle

Some of the reviews here had me a bit worried, but there was no reason to. The tour was great. Especially if you like history and knowing a bit more that the standard fact this is a good tour for you.
