My name is Teresa, I live in the province of Cosenza, in Calabria, Italy.
I am a tour guide since 1987.
I love art, archaeology and popular traditions of my wonderful Region. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with travelers and continue studying to learn new things. I am in love with my town, Cosenza, and will be happy to show you everything there is to see here.
I have enrolled at University when I was 44 years old, to follow my passion for history that grew during my experience as a tour guide. This job gave me the chance to learn a lot about art, culture, history and I learned how to pass on my passion and knowledge to the tourists that come to visit my Region and town.
I have a three-year degree in Philosophy and History and a post graduate degree in Historical Sciences, earned with maximum votes.
I have translated a book from French to Italian for the publishing house Rubbettino, entitled "Scilla and Cariddi" of Francis Wey.
***I can customize any tour in Calabria and take you to small towns to see where your family originally came from, and on request I can do genealogical researches too!***
A Recent Review of this guide
We could not have asked for a better guide! We went to Cosenza with the goal of visiting Piane Crati to see where a friend's family originally came from. Our guide, Teresa, is such a beautiful woman with a kind spirit and an expert on the history of the area that she clearly loves. She arranged for us to attend a special mass in Piane Crati, gave us a tour of the small village, then around historical Cosenza where we enjoyed great food and took in sites we wouldn't have without her. She's the best!
