Welcome back to our “Meet Your Guide” post!
Name: Hi, I’m Debora
Nationality and Hometown? I’m Italian originally from Monza a town north of Milan.
Name of tour you lead and where: I’m very fond of our gourmet tours and I lead the Food Tasting Tour and the Beers&bites walking tour.
If you are not from the city you are based in for tours, what originally brought you there? I was born and raised in Monza, which is mostly famous for the “Formula Uno” races. Monza is a tranquil town with a great historical center and a big, lovely park, the green beating heart of the city. I love enjoying the energy of a big city like Milan while working but go back home at night to a quite, comfy town where I can rest.
Your favorite part of the tour: The best part of the Food tour is the Brera district: one of the most beautiful in town. I love to walk about the area filled with locande, art galleries, caffetterias, osteria and to show the connection between art, culture, history and the Milanese cuisine to all visitors.
Favorite Local Restaurant in your city: Milan is a metropolis where one can find all sorts of place and personally I like very much shops like “Temakinho” where fine sushi is served with Brasilian cocktails! Despite the many original offers one can find, Milan has a deeply rooted gastronomic culture, that you can discovery at design and fashion restaurants like “Dametra” or “La Drogheria San Marco”, here traditional cooking is served, rivisisted or fashionably served to fully immerse oneself in the Milanese style.
What’s next on your travel bucket list? I wish to visit the entire world! But The United States are very high on my list!
What’s your best travel tip for those coming to visit Italy? When visiting north Italy, my suggestion is to plan a long stay in Milan and use it as “base” to travel around the smaller cities, like Monza (my hometown), Bergamo and Mantova all while experiencing the locals life in Milan.
If Debora convinced you, don’t hesitate and book you foodie tour in Milan!
