I am a professional guide working in Genoa, the Italian Riviera and surroundings. I have travelled in different countries for pleasure and work and in the end I fell in love with Liguria, what an unexpected land!
I have worked in the tourism industry since 1988, being based in Genoa since 1991, when I became a licensed Tour Leader. I have been working since 2003, as a licensed Tourist Guide, in the city of Columbus and Pesto sauce.
I have been living, in this tiny corner of Italy, squeezed between mountains and sea, for decades. Liguria is where I have found my happiness.
I consider care in details, empathy, flexibility and a capacity for sharing, to be as valuable qualities for a guide, no less so than having a proper regularly updated cultural preparation.
I want to be your host and share with you this beautiful territory.
My skills and expertise have been refined over the years and my current activities include giving guided tours in Genova, the surrounding areas and the Italian Riviera.
My hobbies include travel, cinema, environment, home style. Being me Italian I love high quality food and wine and being originally from Veneto, I love sparkling bubbling Prosecco!
My goal is to help you to live and to understand this peculiar city of Genoa and its surroundings and to leave you with terrific, life-long memories.
I look forward to welcoming you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
Sandra is a very patient guide who gave us a thorough tour of Genoa, mainly the old part of the city which is steeped in so much history. She was able to accommodate our particular needs and spoke in a clear and concise manner. We even experienced the best cappuccino in Genoa with her. We came away from the tour much more learned than when we began. A fascinating tour from a lady who is passionate about Genoa and it's history.
