About me

Hi I'm Marco, I've lived in Milan since I was born. Milan is the place of my childhood and my boyhood. I have seen this city change during the past twenty years as it has seen me grow up among its tall buildings and picturesque gardens. I love spending time sightseeing, walking around the city through narrow alleys and paved streets. There are plenty of hidden spots of unique beauty and mystery to be found in Milan. I am also familiar with the artists and architects working in Milan. Book me so I can take you on relaxed walking explorations of the city, or if you want to enjoy quiet strolls in the baby-friendly parks and gardens, the same where my parents took me when I was a child. Among my other several interests there are history, art, geography, astronomy and linguistic. I especially enjoy reading classics, my favourite is "The Count of Montecristo".

My most exciting things to do in Milan

Churches, alleys, yards: Milan has a lot to offer, it only needs time and patience to discover some of the most beautiful spots of this city. Every corner, every old building has a story to tell: every walk around the city is a jump in time, back to the time when this city was the capital of the Roman Empire or back when it became the richest and most innovative city in Italy. Book me and we will be time travellers together.

Growing up, I have always been this kind of girl: happy go lucky yet full of dreams and ambitions in life.I know my personality that shines the most is that I can easily connect and communicate with people as much as I am entertaining,welcoming and friendly. I've been in Milan for 4 years and as I've adjusted easily, I already finished college of Tourism. Singing is my best talent as I have been doing it since I was a child. Taking photos like a pro is second on the list. I love photography as much as I love to keep memories together. So if you're looking for a guide and a photographer for your instagram-feed-worthy-photos at the same time , I can do both. You can also rely on me when it comes to shopping.(if you're a fan of shopping, so am I) :) What I love about 'Milan is not only its tourist's spots but also its people. Italians are friendly and appreciative and their culture can never be replaced. With my love for the city, I can prove and show you what it takes to be in this place❤️

Personal and Informative

Highly recommended personalised experience in the centre of Milan by Marco. Seeing the sights and hearing the history from a local literature and languages University student was an absolute delight. A walk to discover the well known attractions as well as some hidden gems at our own pace and without the earpieces required in larger groups was a blessing. Thank you once again, Marco,

City experience of Milan

We had a wonderful day with Marco. A delightful young man, who has a comprehensive knowledge of his marvellous and most interesting city. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. A visit to a "surprise" green and tranquil garden (plus tortoise) where we sat and could see the elegant and historic surrounds, was truly delightful. (Sant"Agostino-Genova) . Also the Olmetto-Piazza Vetra was awe inspiring, historically and amazing. I would additionally like to mention the majestic house and garden, the Palestro Milan - serene and beautiful, as indeed are all the gardens and green areas that we saw. Of course we have to mention the fabulous Duomo Cathedral but due to the crowds and the length of time it would take to join the considerable line for admittance, we opted to take Marco's advise and get up early the next day which we did and had an overwhelming inspiring marvel at the beauty of this wonderful cathedral. We thoroughly recommend Marco to anyone else lucky enough to enjoy his knowledge of a wonderful city.

Had Just one day to see Milan

I really feel like I saw so much of the city! We saw several churches, saw the last supper painting and beautiful courtyards I would have never found on my own. We had some lunch and did some shopping. He was even kind enough to carry the bags so I could take pictures. I finished the day with so much knowledge and a lot of great photos. Thanks Marco!
