Very good, informative narration. Everything ‘came to life’, the way our guide told the story. If you could book Silvana as your guide, it would be the best tour you will have while in Milan. Such passion, love, knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. I suppose it does not hurt to be a professor of history at the university.

Lovely tour with a great passionate host Georgia. Great experience with a good variety of foods and places to eat and enjoy, as well plenty of history of the area!
