I'm the mayor of my town, Galliate, 30 km west from MIlan. I have a passion for my land and I'm lucky that in my small village (15000 people) there is a gorgeuos medieval Castle... It was built in 1100, then destroyed and rebuilt in 1496. Just a few years after Colombo put his foot in Caribbean sea!

I personally will guide into the castle, on top of the towers, inside the burrows and through the two museums collocated in the Castle. If you are lucky to meet me in June and July there are also a number of public events.

Meeting point in Malpensa. Drive to Galliate is just 15 minutes.
The duration of the visit could be 2/3 hours

It was an extremely enjoyable experience. A surprise. Galliate is a friendly city, people are thoughtful, pleasant and ready to help. But it was a visit to the castle with the mayor Davide we surprised anymore. Stories about ghosts and treasures were very interesting, but the reception was even more important for us. Davide is a gentelman. I can clearly understand why people of Galliate chose Davide for mayor. I strongly recommend visiting Galliate. The city is an accurate portrayal of the real Italy and the true Italian people. Monuments are important, but the affection of the people is even more.

Foi uma experiência extremamente agradável. Uma surpresa. Galliate é uma simpática cidade, as pessoas são atenciosas, agradáveis e prontas para ajudar. Mas foi a visita ao castelo com o prefeito Davide que nós surpreendeu mais. As histórias sobre fantasmas e tesouros foram muito interessantes, mas a receptividade foi ainda mais importante para nós. Davide é um gentelman. Posso entender claramente porque o povo de Galliate o escolheu Davide para prefeito. Recomendo fortemente que visitem Galliate. A cidade é um retrato fiel da verdadeira Itália, dos verdadeiros italianos. Monumentos são importantes, mas o carinho do povo é ainda mais.
