Hidden Milan: courtyards & gardens and...
Two years ago I began to work as a location scout in Milan, my city. I discovered its elegant entryways and its secret gardens and I fell in love with Milanese courtyards, which are often inaccessible. I love walking along the streets in the twilight, just admiring the bright lights of the exclusive apartments, but also walking in the early morning in the centre of the city, hunting for a glimpse of something nice. Other things to note Follow me on Instagram @thecourtyardhunter.milano and discover the best spots in Milan. See you soon!
Divertiamoci cucinando insieme le ricette italiane
Quello che offro è un corso per apprendere come realizzare alcuni piatti tipici della nostra splendida Italia. Prepareremo insieme la pasta fresca, nei formati tradizionali delle varie regioni italiane: le tagliatelle all’uovo emiliane, le rinomate orecchiette pugliesi, i cavatelli molisani e per chi desidera sperimentare ed assaggiare qualcosa di veramente unico, ci cimenteremo nei culurgiones sardi (una pasta fresca ripiena, chiusa ad arte, con una farcitura di patate, pecorino e menta) Ci sarà da divertirsi! E mentre lavoriamo, degusteremo un delizioso aperitivo a base di buon vino (o in alternativa una bevanda analcolica) e salame nostrano...e poi tutti a tavola per l’assaggio! Come dolce realizzeremo la torta paesana, detta anche torta di pane: tipica della tradizione povera lombarda brianzola, che veniva cucinata dalle mamme e dalle nonne per le feste di paese e rionali, oppure il più popolare tiramisu’ o ancora il salame al cioccolato. Tornerai a casa orgoglioso di te!

Dive into lake life in Milan

Sailing base experience on Como's Lake
After laying the sailingboat down into the water, we'll learn how to hoist the two sails (and their names), and we'll try to catch the wind to address to some of the most beautiful lake coast and well known villages: the famous Bellagio, Varenna, Menaggio. We'll learn how to trim the sails, to helm the boat in function of the wind direction; and how to keep the fastest boat track in order to maximize wind pressure. We'll try to make a mooring at the buoy and at the quay. If the wind strength changes, we'll change the sails in order to let you understand how sailing safely. We'll learn how to recognize sky signals (bad weather coming, wind reinforcement, wind direction change). There will be also time to admire the gorgeous landscape, relax and dip into the water for a refreshing bath. It will be not a sailing teaching lesson (it is not the experience purpose): feeling the wind and learning what means the use of its force to move a boat in silence, without the use of any engine..... priceless. Other things to note Guests are required to know how to swim or float, and to have confidentiality with water. There is no danger of suffering from seasickness.
Sailing in the heart of Como Lake
We welcome you on board in Menaggio (or Varenna or other places in the area) in the first afternoon, when " la Breva" the thermic breeze is usually coming from Lecco and Como. We hoist the sails and we start the adventure with Grulla! With only the power of light wind, the sound of water on the hull and a magic landscape surrounding us, we will sail in the most beautiful areas of the lake. You will take pictures of characteristic villages as Varenna or Bellagio, watching historical and luxurious villas and if the weather is warm we could stop for a swim. Depending on weather conditions and your personal will, we can decide together the route and stops. Before going back to Menaggio we will offer you a typical Italian aperitivo on board. Check out Grulla on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/grulla_como_lake/ Other things to note In case there is no availability on the calendar try to contact me anyway, we may find a solution for you! The cruise will be subject to the weather conditions. In case of storm we could go back to the port earlier or don't even start sailing.
Unique photo shoot in Lake Como
We will start the adventure while exploring the most beautiful places in Como. The streets of the city will be the perfect backdrop for our shooting. We will live together the beauty of its historic center of small narrow roads. It will be a relaxed walk while I take some amazing candid photos and pirtraits with the city, the lake and different spots as your background. We will stop on the lakefront to admire the view.
