Tour by Sonia
Local

Hello! My name is Sonia and I am an Italian for foreigners teacher. I am friendly, open and curious, I love nature, good food, walking and knowing new people and places.

I live near the new Milan Fair Exhibition complex where they take place the most important trade fairs of the city. It is here that I grew up and I have lived all my life; so I can say that I have known Milan since I was born.

I work with people who come from all over the world and often I had the opportunity to meet my online students in person when they came to Milan for work or on holidays. It was showing them the city that I discovered another passion: to accompany tourists and visitors around Milan to make them see the city with the eyes and the heart of a "local", outside of the usual clichés.

When I visit a city I like walking everywhere to discover the most authentic places, those that tourists usually don't visit and that only locals know. And that's what I've always done in Milan too. In my free time I like going out with my little camera and wandering around the city, looking for new hidden treasures to show my guests.

Description

The tour starts in Piazza Oberdan where in the Twenties there was “Ex Albergo Diurno”, a hidden treasure where locals and travelers that came to Milan could spend some moments of relax taking care of themselves.

Not far from this place there are two of the most beautiful Liberty buildings of Milan: Casa Galimberti and casa Guazzoni.

The tour continues in corso Venezia, a beautiful avenue with elegant buildings and in the district called “Quadrilatero del Silenzio” where we will stroll along nice streets overlooked by some wonderful buildings that represent other fine examples of Liberty Style in Milan such as: Casa Berri Meragalli, Palazzo Sola Busca and Casa Campanini.

Next stop is villa Invernizzi where there is a nice surprise for you: a group of marvellous pink flamingos that relax in the garden of the villa, waiting to be photographed by curious and tourists.

The last stop is via Lincoln, also called the “Rainbow neighbourhood” because of its colourful houses. Not far from this place we can make a relaxing break at “Pasticceria Sissi”, enjoying a good espresso and some delicious pastries.
