Francesca A.

Genova, Italy

Buon Giorno a Tutti!!! My name is Francesca and I live in Genova, where I was born.

Genova is the main town of the beautiful Ligurian coast, located in the north-west Italy. My town faces the deep waters of the Mediterranean sea and is the birth-town of Cristoforo Colombo!!!

I am a geologist and a certified city guide for all the region: I worked a lot in the National Park of Cinque Terre, but today I am specialized in Genoa and Portofino Park.

I worked for an oilfield company for few years, but today my main goal is always looking for new corners of Liguria. I am working as a guide since 18 years ago and I am always enthusiastic to meet new people and to involve them in the knowledge of these landscapes!!
I like meeting new people, walking with them, telling them about the nature and the history. . . cooking with them!! very simple things to enjoy the life!!
I begun to work as a guide only like a joke, working with the Italian schools. When I started to guide foreign people I realized how important is to transmit what you know, even what you learned from your grandparents and from the practical experiences, and mainly to involve other people in your origin and traditions.

There are always many options to discover a country: the typical products, the old shops, the food, the wine are the core of my Italy!!!. . If you like I could always combine optional showcookings, cooking lessons, driving services to my guided tours!!

I hope to heard from you really very soon!!!

A Recent Review of this guide

Francesca did a great job for us! The weather began raining just before our tour was scheduled to begin, and Francesca worked with us to find a time with better weather. She gave us a good orientation of the city, including which buses could take us to nearby areas of our interest. She had both great knowledge and enthusiasm for Genoa and it's history. She also introduced us to local shop owners, deepening our overall experience. Our tour with Francesca was more than what we could hope for!
