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.

A wonderful walk in Milan !

It was an pleasure to be shows around Milan by Marco. Nothing seemed too much of a problem. I especially enjoyed his attention to detail, with the winding back streets emerging into hidden churches and courtyards was such fun. I appreciated the inclusion of a couple of record shops I had asked asked if he could fit into the itinerary ! A Highly recommended local.

Wonderful experience

Marco was fantastic. A sweet, interesting cultured guy that was very attentive, genuinely excited about his beautiful city and just a joy to be around for a few hours. He showed me some hidden gems of Milan that no tourist usually gets to see, he’s a walking encyclopedia of interesting facts and background info and he got me excited about this city. I’m already planning a longer city tour with Marco next time in the fall with some friends. Plus he showed me the best tiramisu place in town...I’ve been back twice already. Big thumbs up to Marco for making my Milan experience special.
