As an art historian and inveterate traveler, I believe that the history of a country should not be kept only in books, but should be explored corner by corner in its cities. For this reason, more than 5 years ago I left the office and decided to go out to the street to directly connect the traveler with the history and culture of the place. My experience as a guide in different European cities has allowed me to harmonize the enormous historical-cultural content of Frankfurt, with all the necessary practical information (such as restaurants, nightlife, shopping, etc.) to make a trip a total experience.
