About me

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 ;)

My most exciting things to do in Brussels

My name is Raffaele and I am an EU official. Night life is my special skill. Clubbing, electronic music, underground life are my areas of interest. I also enjoy flea and vintage markets, food markets and get lost in the Belgian way of life. Belgian beers degustation is also something I do most of the time when free. Belgium is known for offering the best ales in the world! City centre, Ixelles and Saint Gilles areas are the ones that deserve most of your attention and hell if I know them ;)

Hello my name is Rosanna and I've been living in Brussels for 28 years. I am a big traveler and my goal is to visit all the countries in the world. I am easy-going and very open-minded. I like to meet people and learn about other cultures. I studied Human Resources because the well-being of people is a priority for me. Brussels has many nice little places that will make you love this city like I do, and I would be happy to help you discover these places. I love to stroll around the city and go shopping. I also like walking in the parks in the summer, picnics, and attending the various events that take place. Brussels has a lot to offer, so come and discover it with me!

I moved to Brussels from Philadelphia for work five years ago and fell in love with the city from day one! Over the years I have hosted first time and reoccurring guest for work and have always enjoyed showing people around my new home. I enjoy walking around the city discovering what’s new while at the same time enjoy the more traditional spots that Brussels has to offer. I am a true people person and I have a big heart ensuring my guest get the most out of their time in Brussels no matter their timeframe or interest.

I'm interested in history and art, especially contemporary and I go often to exhibitions and cultural events. I love to wander around the city on my bike. On the weekend I usually go out with friends, to the disco, for pizza, to drink beer of course or for a fun karaoke night.
