Amazing evening tour with our wonderful guide, Salvatore
Dan_S, Sep 2023
My husband and I loved learning about the different parts of Milan through the eyes of our wonderful guide, Salvatore. He was extremely knowledgeable about the past, present and future of the city. He acquainted us with areas that we would not have visited otherwise.

Local Experience in Milan
Heta_S, May 2023
Salvatore was a great host, with a wealth of information and a good sense of humour. He showed us the 3 faces of Milan and shared lots of little facts that only a local can. The tour was well planned and executed.
Wonderful Tour

Seeing the Sforza castle & how immense it is, was amazing! We also walked through La Brera & picked up some good tips on restaurant.
Highly recommend
AnaCristina_F, Mar 2023
Saara gave us a super history lesson! It was very special. We already knew Milan and she took us to new places, totally unknown and surprising for us. Very good!! Saara has a lot of knowledge to pass on to tourists. We highly recommend this tour.
