Inge d.

Milano, MILANO, Italy

Ciao. I am Inge and I live and work in Milan since almost six years.

I graduated in architecture at the TU Delft (The Netherlands), but since almost a decade ago I grew a passion for food-related topics and green in the city. In 2012 me and my husband decided to move to Milan, the city of fashion, furniture and food where I decided to dedicate my professional life to what I find so interesting: the combination of food, architecture, urbanism and sustainability.

When I arrived in Milan I immediately started to explore the city and look for the best bars, restaurants and shops in town. Preferably those not known by other 'strangers' like me, as I immediately wanted to become a 'local'. Thanks to this I got to know the city really well and can easily get you to the most beautiful places off-the beaten tracks and make sure you bring home original (food) souvenirs from Milan.

While exploring Milan I also got to know much about its history. And my exploration didn't stop at the city's borders: with my mountainbike I make many trips in the beautiful surroundings of Milan all the way to Pavia and Lodi in the south and Lecco, Como and Bergamo in northern directions. And on hot summer days I do love to leave town early, wearing my hiking shoes and ready to go up-high and enjoy breathtaking views over Lake Como while having lunch in one of the many rifugio (mountain huts). Offcourse finishing the day with an aperitivo on the boulevard.

In the last few years I have had many opportunities to show people around Milan, whether they were friends of family that want to see a Milan not many people know, tourists on a food tour or professionals looking for inspiration. I love to share my knowledge and 'love' for Milan during these walking tours and to give you an alternative view of Milan and its history in order to show you that Milan is as interesting as many other Italian cities.

A Recent Review of this guide

Inge was a wonderful and informative guide for our day trip the lake Como area. She did a great job arranging visits to interesting villages along the lake with a beautiful boat ride. She pointed out unique restaurants and shops and left us wanting to return to this area in the near future! I highly recommend her.
