I was born in Ravenna and I love my job very much. It gives me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. I can talk about the monuments in town, showing them not only the famous and gorgeous mosaics but also revealing hidden corners of the fascinating city of Ravenna.
Every day I am enriched by the enjoyment of my clients and their happy eyes and smiles as they discover more than they ever thought about our wonderful history and beauty.
After study and training courses , I have been working as a Tourist Guide and Enviromental Guide for many years; in Spring I work mostly with students, from primary to high school offering them city tours and excursions in nature. I like to create interesting itineraries such as: romantic tours, Hidden Ravenna, birdwatching in the Wetlands and in the Basilicas discovering other sorts of birds, made with glass paste…. . Ask me please, I will be pleased to propose something especially for you according to your own personal interest!

A Recent Review of this guide
Cinzia was delightful and toured me around Bologna with such great appreciation of the history and art. I really enjoyed seeing the Podesta Palace, Neptune's Fountain, and King Enzo's Palace. Cinzia got me to watch the longest sundial in Europe inside the Basilica of Saint Petronio mark the noon hour. That was amazing. I was in awe of the beauty of all the beautiful churches and history Cinzia related to me. Saint Steven's Basilica was incredible.
