What you'll do

Milan its full of treasures, but sometimes you need to pay a lot of attention to discover them. This is the case of the marvellous facades of the many buildings around the city, created by brilliant architects. One more reason to put aside haste and walk slowly with your eyes raised to the sky. In this tour we will visit an exclusive area of Milan that you won't find in the tourist guidebooks. Here you won't see crowds of tourists, but mostly locals. We will kick off our tour in piazza Oberdan where there is the entrance door to a hidden treasure of Milan that dates back to the Twenties, dreaming about old times in Milan. Just a few steps away and we will be in Porta Venezia, the Liberty district of Milan with some of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings such as: Casa Galimberti, Casa Guazzoni and Cinema Dumont. The next stop of our tour is “Quadrilatero del Silenzio” where we will stroll along its nice streets full of peace, admiring the wonderful buildings that surround us. The last stop is another hidden gem of Milan, a small street far from traffic with small colourful little villas. Here you will breath a completely different atmosphere, forgetting to be in the busy Milan.

Sonia

Hello! My name is Sonia and I am an Italian for foreigners teacher. I am friendly, open and curious, I love knowing new people and places and walking which is something that I often do also in Milan where I like wandering to discover new hidden places and treasures. As Italian teacher, I work with people who come from all over the world and often I had the pleasure to meet my online students in person when they came to Milan for work or on holidays. Taking them around Milan, I discovered another passion: to show my city to all the people that want to discover the real face of the capital of fashion and design, outside the usual clichés.
