I'm a real "local" since I was born in Milan in 1970 and I've seen my hometown growing up, developing and becoming a real European Capital. Now, I can see my 3 children (the oldest one is 16 years old) getting the most of it and I can see how many opportunities Milan is giving them as well.
I love my job! I love meeting people coming from different countries, showing them my city and getting to know about their places. I want my guests to discover Milan as travellers, not as tourists.
My hometown is great! It's the most international and open-minded city of Italy. It's the capital of Italian fashion, interior design and - by the way - also of alcoholic drinks (did you know that the family Campari was from Milan?). The very old town -Milan was the capital of the West Roman Empire- has become now a contemporary town, for which "archistars" like Zaha Hadid, Daniel Liebeskind and Cesar Pelli, designed a new skyline. I've seen and do see this change every single day!
Let me introduce you to MY MILANO!
A Recent Review of this guide
Fausta's knowledge was exceptional. Four of us from Australia in our 60's had the most amazing afternoon with Fausta. The pace was great particularly as it was very hot. When we booked the tour, tickets to The Last Supper were not available. The day they went on sale for 5 September 2018 Fausta secured tickets so we were able to see The Last Supper. Fausta explained the history and renovations undertaken over the years. We also did rooftop tour of Milan Duomo. Highly recommend a tour with Fausta.
