Tour Milan with Fabio Tranchida, professional guide specialized in architecture and music. The tour What Milan is Made Of focuses on the materials, textures, and architecture of Milan. Guido Tour Sharing is a tour company that allows visitors to save money by sharing the tour fees. It’s an excellent way to learn about the cultural heritage of Italy with likeminded travelers. The more people in the group, the more you save.
I was invited to take part in the debut tour of What Milan is Made Of by Guido Tour Sharing. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
The tour starts at Sforza Castle and works its way through the Sempione Park and to the Arch of Peace taking you through the rich history of the 14th-century Sforza Castle, to Napoléon Bonaparte’s urban plan of the early 1800’s to the Liberty style aquarium of the early 1900’s.
Today’s event was part of a Yallers Photo-Walk. Yallers is an association for the culturally inclined. They organize group excursions, city walks, and photo events. Giorgio, one of the tour participants and member of the Yallers Italia Association gave us some pointers on taking photos of architecture:
- Take your time and be patient and you’ll get a good shot
- Take photos of both verticle and horizontal views
- Don’t be afraid to play with perspective
