Federico was awesome! I lucked out and had the experience to myself, which gave me such a great personalized time. He knows so much about Milan, architecture, and the influences of history on architecture. As someone who loves learning and building on knowledge, this was super fascinating to me. He was patient with teaching me about perspective points and how to draw confidently in an architectural style. I can't recommend this enough.
