Are you planning a trip to Milan & Lake Como?

Save time searching for answers about traveling to Italy by asking someone who lives here! You can have a live conversation (with a real person), ask questions and put your mind at ease by talking with me, an expat living here for over 20 years with local insights and knowledge.

There is so much information out there, and so little time to search for it! You can cut that time in half by asking someone who lives in the area.

I’m Celia founder of this site, a freelance travel writer and professional blogger. I split my time between Milan and Lake Como and I am always discovering new and exciting things to do and see.

It’s easy; schedule a meeting, fill out the questionnaire and I will send you a link for a video meeting to start creating your custom itinerary with tips on getting around, where to eat and stay.

I am not a travel agent or tour guide, but I can be hired for the day as a personal assistant or translator during your stay to help you with shopping, restaurant reservations and more.

I think you’ll love hearing about my first hand experiences, but you are free to just browse around the site or send me quick question.

    Browsing the internet searching for vacation tips is time consuming.

I make recommendations based on my own experiences, observations and local knowledge.

    My suggestions and recommendations are genuine. I do not sell anything. Sometimes, I may get a referral fee, but I will not try to push or up-sell anything.

    My insider knowledge comes from hands-on experience and research for my job as a travel writer. I write travel guides, tour reviews and create travel content for blogs and publications. I have been living in Italy for over 20 years. I live half the week in Milan and half at Lake Como, getting the best of both the urban and natural landscapes.

    I am not a tour guide. In Italy one needs a special license to be a tour guide. If you’d like to hire a professional guide or join a group, I can recommend the best one for you and your budget.
