Introduction:

Hello, my name is Claudia! I was born and raised in beautiful Italy and I have been living in England for 15 years. I have chosen to be a tourist guide because I am a people person and because I enjoy sharing with my clients the love and the enthusiasm I have for London and for the entire United Kingdom. I work with groups, schools, families, couples and single individuals. I lead walking tours in the most renowned areas of London as well as in those that are probably less known to tourists but equally, if not even more, fascinating. I regularly guide in London’s major art galleries and museums and, as an officially qualified London Blue Badge guide, I am allowed to give tours in Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and Windsor Castle. I love history, architecture and the visual arts. In my commentaries, I like to trace analogies, stress differences and make links across time and space. If it sounds like I am the right guide for you, please contact me on claudia.crovace@amicablelondon.com and I will get back to you within 24 hours. Cheers!

PER CHI CERCA UNA GUIDA CHE PARLI ITALIANO
Benvenuti sulla pagina del mio profilo! Mi chiamo Claudia, sono nata e cresciuta in Italia e vivo in Inghilterra da 15 anni. Faccio la guida turistica perché mi piace tanto stare a contatto con la gente e condividere con tutti i miei clienti l’amore e l’entusiasmo che nutro per Londra e per il Regno Unito tutto. Lavoro con gruppi, scolaresche, famiglie, coppie e singoli individui. Conduco passeggiate guidate sia nelle aree più rinomate di Londra che in quelle forse meno note ai turisti ma non per questo meno affascinanti. Conosco i principali musei e le maggiori gallerie d’arte di Londra e, essendo una guida abilitata in possesso dell'ambitissimo patentino Blue Badge, sono autorizzata a condurre visite guidate all’interno di: Abbazia di Westminster, Torre di Londra, Cattedrale di San Paolo, Castello di Windsor. Amo la storia, l'arte e l'architettura. Dove possibile, cerco di tracciare analogie, evidenziare differenze e individuare collegamenti per rendere più interessanti e memorabili le mie visite e passeggiate guidate. Se vi sembra che io sia la guida giusta per voi, contattatemi all’indirizzo claudia.crovace@amicablelondon.com e vi risponderò entro ventiquattro ore. Spero a presto!
