Description

Living in Milan i came to appreciate it as an old yet modern city. Being a young traveler myself, I usually prefer walking in the city streets, finding the shortest yet most interesting neighborhoods to walk through from one landmark to the other. This walking tour is made for people who appreciate the feel and spirit of a city and enjoy its iconic landmarks as well as their less famous yet equally astonishing surroundings.

The tour starts in Piazza Gae Aulenti, the "new center". From there we walk through the chic corso Como and Moscova, reaching Sforza Castle through the artistic neighborhood of Brera. Once by the castle, the tour makes a small detour in Sempione Park to see the Arco della Pace. Later again, the walk continues to reach Duomo Cathedral, and Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele. From there it would be possible to try some Milanese treats like a Spontini pizza or a Panzerotti from Luini’s. Later the tour continues through the shops of Via Torino to reach the majestic Colonne di San Lorenzo, and the Navigli canals and bars.

This path is relatively fast and allows its takers to see Milano as an artistic, historic, modern and young city.

Great start for short break in Milan
for Magdalena
The 2 hour tour with Magdalena was great. We were just 2 of us and her so the pace of the tour was easy to combine for comfort of us three. We booked tour with description that we just want some quick introduction for the city. It was like having a local friend showing you around his city when you really do not need to know exact dates of building of some old houses but you get to know the city from a local point of view. She showed us the main points of interest for visitors, even took great pictures for us. We got recommendation for places to try good icecream, coffee and evening Aperittivo in river district where we went after the tour and it was really awesome. Magdalena is lovely girl with great knowledge and professional english skills. We 100% recommend her as a tour guide.
