In Italy, by law, only authorized professionals are allowed to work as tourist guides. Anyone willing to pursue this activity must previously have qualified for it.
Recognizing an authorized guide is easy. Professionals are required to always have their Personal Identification Badge on display, showing their full name, speaking foreign languages, and a photo.
A professional tourist guide, thanks to an in-depth study of the relevant subjects and constant updating, is in the best position to guarantee a valuable tourist experience, engaging visitors with a lively narration rich in relevant information as well as local curiosities. The Trade Association that counts the largest number of tourist guides in Milano is ConfGuide-GITEC, which is part of Confcommercio MI-LO-MB.
GITEC-associated tourist guides are all operational and participate in continuous training activities in order to be fully informed on upcoming events, exhibitions and cultural/tourist initiatives in the city.
