We had a wonderful evening with Alessandro in the Navigli, the canals area of Milan. Alessandro was from the area and was very knowledgeable of the history and local color of this fun area. The aperitivi and bites were delicious. No need for a big meal.

The tour was great. The guide took us to the various restaurants with short walks through the city. We learned a lot from a historical and cultural point of view. The food was delicious and so was the wine. All in all highly recommended!

We had a very nice and funny evening with caterine. We were well entertained and she took us to several places with very good food and also very good beverages. love to take on another tour with her
