About me

Ciao! I am Francesca and Italian teacher who lives in Manchester. I moved here in 2015 but I've been dreaming about moving to this amazing city for a long time! Why? Because Manchester has everything you need, if you know where to look for..football and music above all, but also museums, great walks and restaurants and its University and culture. I will bring you around the city while listening to some good Mancunian tunes to discover its hidden gems and will give you tips for the best restaurants in town.

People who viewed Francesca also viewed these locals

I am a quiet and peaceful person, I love interacting with different people and cultures. My main passion is mushroom hunting and I consider myself and expert for many years. I also love cooking, especially for other people. In my free time i enjoy going to pubs and socialising as well as playing the guitar. I make a great CityUnscripted Local because I enjoy showing other people the city and make them feel comfortable, teaching them interesting things about the city, and showing them my favourite not-so-touristy places.

Having lived in Manchester most of my life and built a business here, I never get bored of this great city. I'm a big Manchester United fan and spend most of my social time eating and drinking in the city, or with my children at the many play areas and country parks dotted around the area. I know the bar, restaurant and nightlife scene well, have a reasonable knowledge of the city's music, art, cultural and history that all contributes towards making it the great place that it is today. I love Manchester's quirky areas such as Castlefield and The Northern Quarter, and everything in between too.
