Nica

I'm Nica a citizen of the world! I was born in Chile, lived in New York, Milan, Barcelona and Genoa, where I decided to stay 15 years ago. Genoa fascinated me, here I didn’t only find the love of my life, but also the passion for history and art. I also got the opportunity to get a second degree and a master in events organization. In this city I have collaborated in organizing wine itineraries, design festival, gala dinners and cultural events. In these years I have seen the great evolution Genoa has had, I’ve learned to know every single corner and I’ve learned to love it!! This is where I want to spend the rest of my life. Genoa is a difficult city, difficult to penetrate and understand, but if you manage to discover it, you can’t help to love it!! I’ll give you the instruments to discover its great charm and history.

Where you'll be

We'll walk in the historical center, stopping to admire and learn events that occurred in beautiful squares, like Piazza San Matteo, Piazza delle Vigne and Piazza de Ferrari. We'll visit my favourite alleys, look up to admire details that if you were by yourself you wouldn't notice and try a very special pastry. For me the direct street to love is knowledge, so I'll give you the instruments to make you love this city! you won't be just a tourist.
