Our tour was really great! Guide Serena is exceptional, we enjoyed talking not only about Milan, its history, but just all the topics on the table. Those few hours went pretty fast. We felt it as if we were just hanging out with a friend. She was very thoughtful giving us recommendations for places to dine which are more popular by locals. Overall we were happy to have her as our host. Sooo you are lucky if you get to meet Serena ;)
