About me

Hi! I am Anne. I am a 25 years old student and traveller. I live in Portugal since 2015 when I came here as an Erasmus exchange student... and here I am, I never left! I was born in Italy in a small town one hour far from Venice. I studied and worked in Venice for 3 years - I got a bachelor degree in International Relations and Foreign Languages, therefore I speak Portuguese as a mothertongue (almost!). I also speak English, Italian and Spanish and I love communicating in each of these languages and I also speak a bit of german and Danish (oh well, I forgot to tell you that I am half danish!). At the moment I am studying Art Business and I do a lot of Yoga in my free time. I consider myself as a very open and positive person, and I always try to give my best to the people that I meet. I love meeting new humans, exchange positivity and learn about other cultures. Why should you choose me as your CityUnscriptedLocal? Well, because I love Lisbon with all my heart and soul. And I made a lot of international friends falling in love with this city. I Studied Portuguese language and culture during 3 years in my bachelor and I came to Lisbon as much as I could during those 3 years and it just got stuck in my soul. When I moved here in 2015 I completely fell in love with the vibes of the city and decided I would never leave. I promise lots of walking, chill, history, food, wine... and Smiles! With the eyes of a local and the soul of an Italian!

My most exciting things to do in Lisbon

Exploring the small streets of Graça, Alfama and Mouraria. Eating typical food in authentic restaurants and "tascas". Watching the sunset while listening to live music in one of Lisbon's beautiful miradouros. Enjoying the sun in Belem, close to the river. Visit Lisbon's Museums and Art galleries. Shopping at Feira da Ladra on Saturdays and Tuesdays. Trying the best pasteis de nata. Eating some amazing bacalhau cooked by a Portuguese grandmother. Chilling in Jardim do Tourel, Jardim da Estrela, Campo martires da patria, Tapada das necessidades and many other green spots all over the city.

Like I always say: I'm not the best person to talk about myself, at all. However, since I'm so found of fighting, I'll give it a go. I guess one could say I am a great person to be around (at least, that's what my friends say!). They always joke about the fact that I can socialize so easily... That I can make friends "with a leg behind my back" (a portuguese saying that sounds terrible in english, but that translates to "doing something that should be hard, easily"). I am a modest kind of funny, but with an incredible sense of humor that allows me to laugh at my own jokes (this translates to a huge self-love capacity)! I love to study different languages so I can connect with the most varied group of people and... I guess that's me!...

Great Fun!

Since I was new to Lisbon, I needed a host who was a familiar with the city and the tour routes. Ann had the knowledge and she often introduced me to places via shortcuts and alternate routes. She is very positive, attractive and fun. She is also a very good walker. I even called her "a military style guide." :) In the 6 hours experience I was exhausted from time to time but she was always ready to go more. For there are many hills in the territory of Lisbon, I thought traveller can be easily tired of walking. She is from Italy as written in her profile, but her English was fluent and correct and fun. ;) She is sociable and attractive. She will guide you to your style.

Great for tourists or business travelers with limited time

I had very limited time as I was on a business trip, and I don't like big tour groups so I decided for a 3-hour-private tour. AnnElisa was a fantastic local guide and showed me lots of places that a tourist would probably miss out on. She was also very attentive to my wishes and requests and was very knowledgeable about Lisbon and its history, but also its current hotspots and nightlife. It basically felt like walking through the city with a friend. Highly recommended!

6 hours with a local

Our host Anna Elise met our family of three husband, wife and adult daughter just near our Lisbon hotel, for a delightful walking tour of the city. We were first-time visitors to Lisbon, and enjoyed our easy-going host as we talked about architecture, what brought her to Portugal and what she loves about the city and people. Our local host was happy to go wherever we wanted, and contacted us in advance to discuss our interests. We walked to the Prada do Comercio and along the cobble stone streets of old Lisbon. We took the cable car, and visited the Castle Sao Jorge, then on to several churches and the cathedral. We stopped near the cathedral at a lovely bistro called Audrey's Cafe for lunch. Afterwards we walked the historic district of Alfama looking at the different shops are artisan's wares. We ended at the Panteao National, tired but feeling like we had seen and learned quite a lot. We highly recommend the experience!
