Meet your guide
Dr. Andrea Gilli, professional Italian tourist guide
I escort individuals or groups on classic or specific regional tours, cultural walking tours, discovering food and wine, peculiar sightseeing, or through places of interest such as industrial establishments, public buildings, and art galleries. I guide visitors interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of Trieste and surroundings. I can provide information about the history of the city, as well as any details about wines and local products of the area, and local restaurants. I am enthusiastic and eager to entertain and involve people in the different aspects of the cultural heritage.
I am a licensed tour guide, I live in Trieste, and I love and enjoy my job.
My experience taught me, that the best tours are made-to-measure, and this is the reason why I will work just for you, respecting all your interests and needs.
Let’s take off together!
