Giulia was born and raised in Milan, where she graduated in art history and post graduated in higher education at the Università Cattolica. She has experience in teaching, in cultural and leisure events and tourism and is a passionate traveler herself. She loves to meet people from all over the world and to make them experience the real atmosphere of her city in every aspect of it: from the old centre to the Porta Ticinese and Navigli district, to the charming narrow streets and shops of the glamorous Brera district, to the vibrant atmosphere of the new buildings in Porta Nuova and finally the traditional dishes to contemporary food creations. Her main goal is always the same: to make her clients feel Milanese for a day.
