Adriano, graduates in literature, licensed tour guide after a career as teacher. In both activities I have given much space to images and monuments as an expression of a historical situation, a culture or a spirituality. I have published a book on the farmhouses and I am preparing another on the iconographic approach to the western artistic tradition. As a guide I focused on Milan which is my hometown. My second language is Portuguese.

Hi, I’m Elisa. I have been working in tourism industry for 15 years, as an employee, operation manager and freelance tour guide, getting a 360° experience. I am a very personable and flexible person, being so curious and travel addicted. I consider myself knowledgeable and insightful, friendly and down to earth. I always take one more step than I think I could, looking for a way to move outside my comfort zone so that I can test new approaches. I prefer new challenges instead of repeated and routine activities. As I am used to take risks and try new experiences I am able to support others doing the same, given a good amount of complicity and empathy. I love outdoors activities, all that is natural and pristine, walking and cycling. I like talking to people, listen to stories, writing poems.

Ileana, Bundi! Whether you are Italian or coming from abroad, this is the way I welcome everybody! It means Buongiorno or ciao in the dialect of Piemonte, the region of Italy where I live and where I was born (do not ask me when..ah..ah..) and where I work as a professional and licesed tour guide. Being a tour guide is more than a job to me: it is my love, my passion, my joy. After the university where I graduated in Political Science and during which I study at the International Labour Organization of UN as well, I started preparing to be a guide. Two difficult and stimulating years of studying...though stuff... Since then I never stopped to study and I never stopped to learn from all of my guests!! Once a an american lady told me " never get tired of beauty" and she was absolutely right. I am waiting for you to share tasting, drinking, discovering. I want to be stunned with you of this corner of Italy adding some words of local dialect that I speak fluently!! Piedmont is really a surprise, one of the greatest wine producer, a very uncommon food, genuine touristy places with lots of Unesco Heritage.

Hi, my name is Julio, I am a professor of History and Geography in high school in Málaga (Spain) and although I do not live in Italy, in my free time I like to discover "hidden" places in the north of Italy (my fiancée has her family in Milan). Thanks to the public transport system for those like me who love to use the bicycle, these connections allow visitors to move easily in the Lombardy area without taking the car. During sunny days, I like to discover the nature that surrounds the urban area and all the villages riding my bicycle through the countryside, getting in touch with the locals, nature and country life.

Hello! My name is Sara. I've been living in Verona for over twenty years and in this wonderful city I work as tourist guide. After graduating from high-school in classical studies, I gained a bachelor's degree in Oriental Languages and Literatures (hindu) at Ca'Foscari University in Venice, but then circumstances of life brought me to Mexico, where I lived for a few years and started working in the world of tourism. Once back in Italy, I settled in Verona and I let myself be inspired by my passions and the beauties of the city and its surroundings. I therefore decided to set the exams in order to obtain the qualification to the profession of tourist guide. Working as a tour guide means to talk about art, history and folk traditions; to describe monuments, artworks, landscapes, food, wine and typical products; to get in touch with people of different language, culture and origins and make them fall in love with places they visit: a real pleasure for me! I wait for you!

Serena works as tour guide since 2013 in this period I have gained a lot of experience to work with people. The most of the tours I offer take place in the Cinque Terre coastline , in the Gulf of La Spezia also known as The Gulf of the Poet and in the medieval town of Sarzana. During my tours people have the possibility to know the history and the traditions of the places but at the same time they can taste the typical specialties of the area such as wine, seafood and focaccia. It is also possible to enjoy the breathtaking views that the area offers through the many trails, only with the right equipment of course! There are many ways to spend a nice day in the Cinque Terre coastline exploring the area by train, boat or on foot. In any case the tour can be changed at any moment according to the customer requests. Moreover the tours can be held in English, German or in Italian.
