What you can expect

Come with me and I'll be glad to show you all the corners, the secrets and the magic of my city!

Being a writer and architect student, it's easy for me to lead you through an adventure that could end in a top of an old wall with a romantic story or in deep underground tunnels with the mystery of secret victory against the submission.

A mixture between the city's history and local life that lets you see the evolution of the city to the present day. On this trip through history, will find the places where it all happened since the twelfth century to the present, with a description of historical events far beyond the built heritage, episodes these that have shaped the personality of the local citizens and how the whole country see this special city full of small details and secrets. During our tour breakpoints vary between ex libris of the city, the sights, the lesser-known historic sites and even small details investigated in the historical archive of the city, to a more comprehensive and complete knowledge.

Nothing is too much for adventure times!
