My name is Chiara, I am a professional tour guide based in Lisbon, as well as a writer and translator of Italian nationality. I was born in Sicily (Italy), in 1984. At 18 years old, I traveled in Ireland; through hitchhiking and busking with a guitar, I fell in love, not just with Irish humor and kindness, but the sensation of life flowing through my veins. In 2010, I moved to Dublin, where I spent 5 years. Afterward, I extensively traveled, volunteered, and lived in countries like Greece, Holland, the Canary Islands, Spain, and Portugal. In 2017 I settled in Lisbon and since 2019 I have been leading walking tours. I also love practicing yoga and meditation.
