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
If there were a higher rating than five stars I'd give it! Cinzia was terrific. Extremely knowledgeable of the city, it's history and it's "secrets". The five of us, two couples and a teen ager, had an awesome day. The food tastings were great and Cinzia had everything arranged. By the way, if you want to learn of Bologna's secrets, you'll have to take Cinzias tour! Brava!
