I'm an Italian freelance journalist based in Budapest, I've been living in this amazing city for 6 years.
I've worked as a tourist guide in Budapest and I've got a two years grant to research Hungarian history, literature and culture.
I like exploring underground spots out of the madding crowd and share it with the right people.
I'm currently writing a book about Budapest, so please be aware that if you join my tours you'll probably become my guinea pig.

Description

Join me for a tour throughout the history of Budapest by looking at the numerous statues spread around the city centre and the Danube bank.

Every statue in Budapest tells a story about a specific historical moment: beloved queens, unknown cops, Holocaust memorials, communist stars, tormented poets and spontaneous grassroots installations. In this tour statues will be the dots connecting you with this beautiful capital.

Of course, there will be space for humour and fun stories. In fact, a statue in Budapest is never forever. Learn curiosities about recycled monuments, statues that regularly disappear and reappear somewhere else, historically figures that nobody knows.
