Cristina P.

TURIN, ITALY, Italy

Hi! I am Cristina and I am a full-time licensed tourist guide in Turin, Genoa (2-hour driving distance from Turin) and Portofino (near Genoa) and Langhe (in the province of Cuneo, almost 1h from Turin).

I was born in Genoa (in Liguria region where also Portofino is) but my mother is from a small town near Venice, my father from a village near Rome. Ten years ago I moved to Turin for a romantic reason: I got married to a Torinese. So, I can describe myself as a "pizza", full of Italian ingredients offering you the taste of Italy. I have attended the technical institut for tourism in Genoa where I studied English, French and German.
I got a degree in Literature specialising Archeology because art and history are my passions since I was a child at school.
In 1994, I became a tour guide: I wanted to be the link between Art&History, Food&Wine, local cultures and way of life and the tourist curiosities. I give them the passwords to understand the places they are visiting. Fascinating job, isn't it?
I speak fluent English and French that I use not only as tour guide but also as tour leader during my tours abroad.
I am so proud to make you feel the atmosphere of Turin and also of. . . . the wine country of Langhe & Roero (Barolo and Barbaresco). . . . and Portofino, the wonderful famous inlet on the sea.
Just plan your staying, choose my tours and it will be a real pleasure for me to be your personal key to this part of Italy, from the Alpes to the sea. Do not forget that I can also arrange special tours according to your needs.
See you soon. . . . . or, as we say in Turin, "Cerea"!
