Having studied in Brussels and currently living there, he would like to promote and convey many aspects quite unique to this European capital. If you are looking for "out of the box" thinking and approach to this city, book me and I will make you see them.

I enjoy my life as much as possible. I like to constantly meet new people and being around as much as I can. Explosive personality and love for style and culture. People love my spirit of initiative and the fact that I have always something to propose and recommend, especially at night. Brussels is not a place to visit but a place to live. Nightlife is extraordinary and the melting pot has nothing to fear compared to other big European cities. The world is here let me just show it to you ;)

I would be glad to show you the most beautiful corners, buildings, churches, squares and monuments of Brussels; a city I have being living in for about 25 years. As a well-educated Italian with a good knowledge of art history and aesthetics, I will show you the best panoramas and architecture of the city. Of course, I would also be available to present you with other aspects of Belgium and its capital, from different angles such as economy, society, artistic life, European affairs, business climate in Belgium and Brussels, international relations, government matters and any other subjects which may interest you.

.I am Portuguese and I have been living in Brussels for 3.5 years. I am a writer who also works in hospitality. My passions are jogging, dogs, languages and eating. I believe that travelling brings us together and is a great opportunity to think about the fact that even if we live in different countries, we all share the same human emotions, hopes and dreams. I like to connect with fellow humans that way, help them have an amazing time, and this is why I chose to be a local guide.
