Why did I become a tour guide? Well, I’m not from New York ( or any other place in the US for that matter) I came here few years ago from Florence, Italy as tourist myself and then fell in love with this vibrant city (and not only the city…) and decided to stay. I was struck also by the amazing architecture, I’m very passionate about Art Deco and New York is the “Mecca” of this exciting and elegant style . I discovered then so many more aspect to this city that I used to know and that usually people who don’t live here , really know. Few years ago I felt the need to share all my knowledge about New York as an “insider” who also still has a tourist point of you, so that people that are visiting the city can appreciate a little bit more of the “real” Big Apple and the incredible energy that it transmits through its people. So I decided to become a New York City Licensed Sightseeing Guide and start this new adventure. I’m convinced that there isn’t a tour more interesting than another, there isn’t a “One Fits All” solution. Each one of us has different interests and needs , therefore a tailored itinerary is always the best option. Your unforgettable journey in NYC starts from here…

About the Tour

Let's discover together the places where it all began.

 Lower Manhattan is the oldest part of New York City, the place where the Dutch arrived and founded New Amsterdam, the original name for NY.

 We will start our tour from Battery Park , where it all started in 1624, and then we will continue to explore the oldest part by visiting one of the oldest taverns, Faunces Tavern , we will also see where George Washington lived for a period of time. We will pass by the famous Bull of Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and the Trinity Church. Later we will go to the World Trade Center , where we will end the tour admiring the new buildings and the monument, we will remember the courage and bravery of the many "heroes" who lost their lives during that tragic day of September 11, 2001 .

I wait for you on this wonderful tour of Manhattan!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: We will meet in front of the entrance to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.
