Hi everyone! My name is Pilar and I'm Andalusian but Italian at heart. After graduating in Art History in Seville, I embarked on the incredible adventure of living for 3 years in Venice where I worked as an official tour guide. In those years I fell in love with its culture, its art and its people, so Italy will always remain in my heart. Destiny brought me back to my city, Seville, and gave me the opportunity to work here as an official tourist guide, which is my passion. Seville is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Seville is art, history, culture, gastronomy, traditions, emotion… Seville has everything to make you fall in love and I want to show it to you. Would you like to get to know it with me? I'd be happy to do that. See you soon!
