Cinzia Maestrini

Hi! My name is Cinzia, and I love my job. After attending a Foreign Language High School, I graduated from Venetian University "Ca' Foscari" with a degree in Mandarin Language and Literature. I studied in England and lived and worked as an interpreter in China to improve English and Mandarin. Being a Tour Assistant, I worked for several years with Chinese delegations and American groups, travelling with them both in Italy and in Europe. Yet, this was not enough for me. My love for the Arts and History of Venice had grown so much, that I decided to study for the specific exam to become a Qualified Professional Tourist Guide in Venice (passing a tough test: 3 written tests and seven oral tests). I love travelling; it allows me to get in touch with different cultures, traditions and religions. While working, I meet people from all over the world: it is thanks to you that I have the chance of "travelling" every day. I like photography, too, if you have this passion I can plan photographic tours in Venice. Laozi in the 4th century B. C. said: 千里之行, 始于足下 a thousand miles long trip starts with the first step. I will be waiting for you eagerly to take with you the first steps into the contradictory, romantic, mysterious and yet simple city.
