Isadora Liquori

I was born and raised in Bologna (although I had spent a few years off in the UK). I know every inch of my town and how tricky it can be to find a good balance between traditional sightseeing and visiting our hidden gems. After working for several years, I know all the secret spells to create an "experience". Now it's time to take you through it! I will use my passion to show you what my beautiful city has to offer in a more unconventional way. As a licensed local guide, I have access to all landmarks.

From USD 37 / Screen
