We are a DMC – Destination Management Company, fundamentally specialized in the area of Lombardy and, even more, Milan. Guided by an experience of over fifteen years in the area, every day we organize guided tours open to the public, private guided tours including for groups and schools; we also provide all-round consultancy for the organization of prestigious events in marvellous artistic and historical settings, undertaking to answer with clarity, speed and passion the needs of the Public Administration, Companies, Tour Operators, Agencies and Associations, Over time, Neiade Tour & Events has acquired the management of the events locations Spazio Theca, in Piazza Castello in Milan, and that of the Corsaro dei Navigli.
Since its foundation in 2004 by Olivia Campanile, who is still at the head of the company, we have developed and organized experiences and cultural events, committed to telling the story of Milan and its culture, showing it off to its best, as well as to allowing an increasingly vast public to enjoy Art, History and Architecture and enthusiastically learn about the cultural heritage of the city. Our strong points are creativity, quality and simplicity, as well as a constant selection of the qualified guides most capable of enthralling all the participants.
History and Main Activities
It started as a project of local development (sponsored by Milan City Council from the beginning for almost ten years), A spasso con Milano (Strolling around Milan) has been transformed over time into a highly diversified calendar of guided visits, tours and cultural experiences (over 400 appointments a year for a total of about 12,000 citizens in 2019), all of which can be reserved and purchased online directly on the website www.neiade.com.
In addition to the traditional offer of guided tours to sites, monuments and temporary exhibitions, we have always been committed, with creativity and study, to expanding the public interested in the city’s history and culture. The many initiatives include the tours on board the Historic Tram of ATM, the local transport company, of which we are also the suppliers for the tour guide services on Tram and Atmosphere, the tours on the Navigli on board the Motorboat, which we jointly own with the Navigare l’Adda Consortium, history and art lessons on Milan in the historic Savini Caffè and in our events space, Spazio Theca, in Piazza Castello in Milan. Neiade’s offer also expands those of the www.in-lombardia.it portal, as part of a technical sponsorship with Explora S.c.a.p.for the activities to develop and promote tourism in Milan and the region.
From the middle of March 2020 we have devoted ourselves to freely providing cultural content on Milan, through our blog posts, newsletters and videos on Youtube, all under the hashtag #Milanoacasatua. In April, we inaugurated a full calendar of online tours with a participation which, to date, has about 1500 people registered. In recent years we have also worked with many companies in the area so that they chose the cultural dimension of the city for their events, with exclusive visits and gala dinners in the Gallerie d’Italia, Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, the Pinacoteca of Brera, the Torre Branca, the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and many other cultural sites in Milan and other cities, as far as Rome.
