Introduction:

Hi! My name is Claudia and I have been living in England since 2003, first in Cambridge and then in London. Originally from Italy, I moved to England to study for a PhD degree in Protein Biochemistry at the MRC- Laboratory of Molecular Biology, one of the most prestigious research institutes in the entire world! I had a great time in Cambridge and I still love science but, since we only live once, I thought I'd try and squeeze two completely different careers into one lifetime. Since I was a child, history, art and architecture had deeply fascinated me. London, on the other hand, had always felt the place where I was meant to spend my adult life. Combine the two and you have my ideal job: tourist guiding in London! sharing my love for London's history, art and architecture with people of any age, nationality and background!

London is a special place within England and the UK and nobody feels a foreigner here, no matter what language they speak or what country they come from. For this reason, despite the fact that I am neither British nor English, I like to consider myself a Londoner through and through and I would be delighted if you chose ME to take you around the city I know so well and I feel so passionate about! So, don't hesitate any longer!!! Contact me on claudia.crovace@amicablelondon.com or call me on +44 (0)7903 097790. Really looking forward to hearing from you!
