I consider myself a thoughtful and well-balanced person. My behavior is mainly based on respect, accuracy, good manners and seriousness. I am also outgoing and self confident, with a strong sense of humor. I think I have good communication skills and a great capacity of adoption. Thanks to my previous working experience in various fields, I managed a lot of different activities and duties. Therefore I acquired several professional skills, Having worked mainly in the tourism industry I got used to having direct contact with the clients. Among my various interests and hobbies I would like to underline art, archeology, photography, sports, music. I am prepared to take up new challenges

About the Tour

WOW! There is a guru in Civitavecchia! And if you want, it will put you on the track of the history of this Old City, this is actually the meaning of the word Civitavecchia (Civita = City, Vecchia = Old).
Exploring the main sites and attractions of Civitavecchia, you will travel through almost 2000 years of its history , from the Roman period to the Middle Ages, from the Renaissance to the Second World War.
Surprisingly, the beginning of this free tour will be carried out by a samurai named Tsunenaga ! His statue is located at the entrance to the port to commemorate his visit to the city more than 400 years ago, but to symbolize the international character of the port and its vocation for cultural and commercial exchange. Walking through the ruins of the old Roman port you can see real life scenes of fishermen on the pier selling their freshly caught fish. After admiring some other port attractions, such as a fortress completed by Michelangelo (Forte Michelangelo), a fountain designed by Vanvitelli , and the city walls , you will be taken to the picturesque city center.
Here you will visit interesting places, churches and monuments. But also a hidden gem: that is a private apartment in which there is a room decorated with paintings designed by the great Raphael! Leaving the center through narrow alleys, we will return to the starting point: the statue of the Samurai; "Say ようなら、またね! (Sayonara, kill you!)".

Places we will visit on this free tour:

  • Status of Hasekura Tsunenaga
  • roman port
  • the old fortress
  • Font Vanvitelli
  • Michelangelo Fortress
  • Saint Francis Cathedral
  • City center
  • Raphaelesque paintings


See you soon!
