No one likes wandering around looking lost when they first arrive in a city - no one we know, anyway. You’ll join one of our friendly local Milan hosts to make sure this doesn’t happen, as you let them show you the ropes in Italy’s most fashionable city.

Find your footing among colourful piazzas and canals as you take to the cobbled streets steeped in history, art and rich cultural heritage - there are so many faces, stories and legends to be discovered.

Learn how to navigate Milan's network of buses and trams, get oriented in the city streets (no getting lost on our watch!), discover the briefest of histories and get tips for how to enjoy Milan like a local.

Along the way you’ll see some iconic sights like the splendid Duomo di Milano and Santa Maria delle Grazie, explore neighbourhoods like hip and creative Isola and chic Brera and stroll along the Navigli.

Of course, we know what you really want to know is “where should I go for aperitivo?”, so of course, your host will share with you their local tips and recommendations for where to eat and drink (and not just for aperitivo!)

You’ll feel at home in no time.

Flexible, Friendly, Knowledgeable

Excellent English and full of historical information. Even after our time with Marco, the next day, he sent us an email with some restaurant recommendations. Overall, we really appreciated Marco's ability to adjust to our unusual, personal needs and help us get our Milan visit off to a great start!

Milan KickStart walking tour

Marco met us at the train station and helped us get to our lodging. He was extremely patient waiting for us to take care of check-in details which cut significantly into his time with us. He walked us around the area near our ladging and really helped us understand where things were. Even after our time with Marco, the next day, he sent us an email with some restaurant recommendations. Overall, we really appreciated Marco's ability to adjust to our unusual, personal needs and help us get our Milan visit off to a great start!

Fabulous

We loved the Local Host tour with Gregory. We visited many attractions, loved the Roman Walls, Benedictine Monastry and Piazza Venezia ( Musolini Balcony) Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. We would have had difficulty finding any of these without Gregory. This tour is an excellent way to orientate yourself on the first day in Milan. Gregory's excellent knowledge, friendly nature and great advice and tips for our stay in Milan made our stay so memorable. Highly recommend.
