My most exciting things to do in Milan
People who viewed Marco Michele also viewed these hosts
Hi! My name is Alessandro. I moved here four years ago because of my studies at University and I started appreciating Milan since the first day I arrived. Milan welcomes everyone, this is why I really feel at home here. Milan is a very dynamic city, a place in constant transformation, following the challenges of the future. I saw many things that have changed in Milan so far. The 2015 Milan EXPO has challenged Italians and their capacity of improvement. Milan has faced this change towards modernity, from the arts up to the technological field. I will take you through the charming streets of Milan, showing you the ancient ashtonishment of the Duomo and the incredible beauty of the modern Unicredit Tower. Every tour is always personalized!

Hi there! I am Aida (like the Verdi one) and I'm a happy person, up for anything and very enthusiastic. I love to try new things and to learn as much as I can, I love to eat (who doesn't) and to try new foods and cool places and Milan's offer is really big, from the eat-standing in the street options to the big fancy places. Since October 2015 I embarked in an adventure called "Gelato Project". to try as many different ice cream flavors as possible all around the world. So far I have tried 120 gelatos in 22 different cities, of course being Milan the one I have tried the most and where some of my favorites have been, so it's safe to say that I can give expert advice as to which gelaterias are good around town. Check it out at https://www.instagram.com/365.gelatos/ I love how much history there's in Milan, especially how much you don't expect, little streets that seem so innocent or even unspecial can carry so much. I love how diverse it is, you can find something for everyone here, architecture, history, night life, culture and museums, parks and outdoor activities, just about everything. I'm a great Local because of two main reason. First I have seen Milan from many different perspectives: by myself, with friends, in the middle of winter, with my parents, lost, in a hurry, at 2am, wandering randomly, at noon and 35°C, etc... And that has given me both knowledge about it, but also a great love and appreciation for it. And second, I have experienced myself being both a traveler, a local and a guide. I enjoy traveling very much and also I have been in the position to be a guide to people from everywhere, which I really enjoy, I feel happy when I get to help, or even better, teach someone a bit about Milan and Italy.

Hi! I'm Giovanni and I've been studying and living in Milan since I moved here to attend University. I've immediately fallen in love with this city beacuse it matches my different interests and my will to discover new things. All of my passions are welcome in Milan, from music to sports, as well as medicine, arts and drama: there's nothing missing in such a dynamic city when you are as eclettic as I am! My curiosity leads me to discover hidden spots of the city where I live and that's why I got to know little by little the historical and artistic side of Milan. There's nothing better to me than strolling in the historical centre and find what's new around, whether it is a temporary exhibition or a hidden pub. So if you want to be taken for a unusual walk through magic of Milan I'll be glad to lead you!
