What you'll do

We will take a nice walk of about 3 hours in the UNESCO heritage quarters of the city of Granada. Walking through the labyrinth of the Arab quarter, I will tell you about the centuries-old history of this city. Losing ourselves in beautiful and very narrow streets, we will retrace the history of Granada starting from the indigenous peoples, passing through Romans, vandals and Visigoths and focusing on the Arab period. Going up the hill I will show you some breathtaking views of the city and the Alhambra. I will talk about the Reconquista, the coexistence of Muslims, Jews and Christians, the arrival of the gypsies and their extraordinary art: Flamenco. It will be a historical journey that will allow you to experience beautiful places that ordinary tourists would never have the chance to see and learn and learn about the highlights of Granada's important history. We will talk together to make this experience a chance for mutual enrichment. I love the exchange of information and ways of living life, meeting new people who bring a great cultural background to their journeys. In this little journey we will talk about Granada, but also about us, what we are, what we do, our experiences and our dreams. It will be a great opportunity to get to know a beautiful city in the best possible way by experiencing an unusual and exciting experience.
Other things to note
Comfortable walking clothes and shoes. Hat or sombrero for sunny days.

I graduated in History at the University of Siena in 2012 with a degree in the Nazarite Kingdom (Arabic) of Granada. At that time I experienced my first experience in the Andalusian city, falling in love with its history, its scents, its colors. Once back in Italy I finished my studies graduating in Historical Sciences at the University of Bologna with a thesis on the formation processes of the National States. After an experience in Scotland and then in Belgium I moved to Granada. I have been living in the city of pomegranates for two years where I worked for a tourist company as a guide for 18 months. During this experience I decided to set up on my own to offer travelers a historical-political vision of the city, but above all to share my passion with those who want to know and learn.
