Born and raised in Milan, I used to work in the transportation industry for few years before deciding to live out of my real passion: tourism. I became a professional tour guide licensed in English and German, then later, French and Spanish as well. Meeting people and speak their language is one of my favorite things. Within my job I try to offer a good experience to everybody, that's why I attended another course to be able to guide also for disabled people. And because I really enjoy studying and always learning new things, I recently took a course in art restoration. Today I am a National Tourist Guide and a tour leader in Milan, Bergamo, Monza Brianza and Lake Como. I am proud of my region and I love showing its best to my guests so they can enjoy an unforgettable experience. Member of several tourism associations and organisations in Milan, I am an active ambassador of the city and its culture, especially in the classical music and fashion industry.

We really enjoyed our tour with Fausta. She is very knowledgeable about the City of Milan. She will be a good choice if you are looking for a nice combination tour that includes some of the historical things to see, along with a tour of some of the fashion places to shop. We had a good day with her and would recommend her for others. Written before the UTF site launch
