Milan Revealed

There are cities of evident beauty that is not revealed to anyone and other secret cities that love to be discovered: Milan is a city to be discovered
— Carlo Castellaneta (famous Milanese writer)

Milan it’s not the typical città d’arte, where every corner is a little treasure rescued from the unforgiving passing of time and an eventful history; it’s not loud and ostentatious in its beauty like Rome; decadently opulent like Venice or divinely refined as Florence. Milan is sober and discreet, its wealth and history modestly kept, a real signora who doesn’t need to impress or brag, strong of her substance and refined beauty, proud of her past, confident of her present and self-assured in her forthcomings.

Milan looks forward, projecting into the future the dreams and hopes of a nation; Milan is progressive, hard-working, vibrant and full of life, but it’s all this in an understated way and that’s why it can easily go unnoticed. That’s where I come in. 

There’s no need to be a tourist in Milan

The Milan Revealed experience invites you to step away from the mindset of a simple tourist and open up a wider perspective.

If you are looking for a different and more intimate way to experience this great city, if you want to explore following carefully planned bespoke itineraries that satisfy your unique interests, enjoy the flexibility and independence that single or small group travel provides, then I’ll be happy to be your travel companion.

I love to design and create beautiful experiences of Milan and surroundings for all travel and photography enthusiasts. I can take you to see the main attractions with different eyes or guide you to the off the beaten track with an itinerary that will lead us to lesser known parts.

Create a visual story of your journey

We’ll create a visual story of the city following the footsteps of its illustrious residents, from Leonardo to Alessandro Manzoni, Giuseppe Verdi and Maria Callas, and get a deeper understanding of its intricate history, complexity we find embodied in its many architectural styles.

We will hang out in the best coffee shops and restaurants… There are so many on offer, but the best ones are often hard to find and they most probably aren’t the ones you have listed on your guidebook.
