Born in the beautiful region of Piedmont, I grew up surrounded by exquisite food and wines - so no surprise I became a foodie! 13 years later, I fell in love with Milan (and a Milanese who became my husband) where I live and work today. As a professional tour guide, I had to study to obtain my license to guide in Milan, and this was like “getting the citizenship” but now I feel like I am both Piedmontese and Milanese. Guiding is my passion and sharing the amazing city of Milan with you is the greatest job in the world! My in-depth knowledge extends to nearly all of the Milan major sites and museums, but what I love the most is organizing food tours to get you acquainted with the delicious and diverse gastronomy of Milan the local way. There is nothing better than a good food tasting to learn about a city and its traditions so make sure you show up hungry to my tours! One of my favorite moments is when I see the faces of my clients as they taste new foods and learn new facts! In my free time, I love reading a good book and shoe shopping but also, enjoying life with friends and family. My advice to you: don’t leave Milan before trying the famous Risotto alla Milanese. Please note: when I am not available, I have a team of fantastic tour guides to replace me.
