Together with Veronica, we spent a pleasant afternoon in the pulsing hearth of Milano, where skyscrapers and monumental design pieces are emerging year after year! Veronica's love for her modern city made the tour exciting and entertaining! The growing trend of the city under construction is toward the green building so, together with buildings with sparkling glasses you can find green and wheat fields, and also a vertical forest, named "Bosco Verticale", flourishing above the terraces of a residential skyscraper. With Veronica it was like being in a small Italian New York.

I took the Milan Street Art Tour with Veronica. She was an incredible guide and had extensive knowledge about the Milan street art scene. She wrote her university thesis about street art and also understands what is going on in the scene outside of Milan. She is a licensed guide and has also spent time with notable street artists in order to fully immerse herself in this subject. I would recommend this tour because you will learn many things about street art that will surprise you, and the value delivered is more than the price you pay. Highly recommend.

Pur essendo a Milano da tanti anni, ho scoperto con Veronica una zona per me nuova: il quartiere Isola. Una passeggiata tra le viuzze ricche di murales eseguiti da artisti di fama internazionale, con soggetti e temi originalissimi.

Veronica guided us all afternoon along the narrow street of the "Isola" district of Milano, showing us street art works realized by artists of international standing. Thanks to a number of anecdotes and stories told along the way, Veronica conveyed us enthusiasm and passion for this alternative form of art, full of hidden meanings. We certainly spent a special afternoon, to repeat and recommend!
