A Recent Review of this tour

Fiamma is a great guide. We had a long list of sights to see in Milan and very little time. She suggested a great way to cover it all, and she covered it really well. Fiamma has a great disposition and is very knowledgeable. She was also very accommodating of our changing interests during the tour and she was able to switch things up effortlessly. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to tour Milan. Grazie Fiamma!
