Giacomo Zavatteri

I am an art historian. I have a master degree in Preservation of Cultural Heritage (art history) with a specialisation in Medieval Art. Since 2005 I am a licensed tour guide in Milan. Since then I have shown my city to thousands of tourists coming from all over the world and many cultures. This is one of the things I love the most of my job: meet new people from different countries. This is why I specialised in private tours. I live in Milan, this is my city, the city I love the most in Italy. That is why in showing the most important monuments I like to show facts only locals know, see things in a different way! During my tours you will admire Milan with the eyes of a local.

From USD 31 / Screen
