Meet Luigi, your guide in Milan!

If you’re planning a trip to Milan you might want to find a great guide that can lead you through the city and teach you its history in an amusing way, that’s why you’ll need Luigi while in town!

Name: Luigi

Nationality and City of residence: I am Italian and Milanese (since I’ve been living in the big city for a long time now!).

If you are not from the city you are based in for tours, what originally
brought you there? I was born and raised in Alessandria a small town near Milano. Studies, work and the cultural life of a big city brought me to Milan and it stole my heart!

Name of tour you lead and where: I lead the most entertaining Segway Tours!

Your favourite part of the segway tour: The view of our majestic Cathedral, Milan’s Duomo! But I’m afraid that most part of its appeal is the wide, flat square through which our guests love to speed with segways 🙂

Favourite Local Restaurant in your city: I love the nice and traditional atmosphere on the Navigli area at Officina 12, to get out of the city centre.  I also enjoy Lacerba which has an amazing cocktail bar and its good to try something different!

One thing visitors to my city can’t miss: The charming Cathedral area or the air that’s around the Old district of Navigli (old canals of Milan)… it feels like jumping back in time!

Travel Mantra? “Get lost  in a new place and find yourself  new in it”

What’s next on your travel bucket list? Next travel is to South America, but only a part of it…and on the next trip the rest 😉

What is your favourite Italian city to travel to? Probably it’s a classic, but it’s Rome. The trip to Rome is great, crossing half of Italy to find yourself in a completely different place, with different culture, food and people but althesame being in the same country!

What’s your best travel tip for those coming to visit Italy? To get out of the most beaten destinations, visiting small towns and, why not, villages where you can dive deeper into local traditions. Milan is in a excellent location for doing this, being a short ride from smaller town in Lombardy and Piedmont region (my region).

What’s the food that someone must try in your city before leaving? Risotto (all kinds but the most milanese one, is  the one with saffron sauce). During Christmas time one must Panettone, the Italian traditional Christmas cake.

What do you like most about leading tours? Going around the city together with new people, seeing their emotions, answering their questions, having fun together, makes me discovery my city all over again everyday and fall in love with it again and again.

What makes your tour unique: Ha! That would be me 😉
