Hello! I’m Marco Besio, licensed tourist guide of Genoa. My passion is to organize itinerant conversations in my city and its surroundings.
The travelers who choose them are people who are not satisfied with generic tours or just being passive spectators of the wonders of a city, but love to understand the evolution of a complex and millenary city. They are curious tourists who love to ask questions and interact with those who are telling them about the city, in a mutual cultural exchange.
I like to illustrate the glorious history of Genoa through the incredible stories of wealthy merchants, bankers, nobles, I noticed together with those of simple craftsmen or poor people; those who choose my itinerant conversations are immersed in a passion for the city that I carry with me since I was a child.
All the itinerant conversations that I propose are designed for small groups of people traveling together, so you will participate in a truly personalized private tour.
Itinerant conversations are designed to take home not only an exchange of knowledge, curiosities, popular sayings, legends and mysteries, culinary traditions but also stimulating and fun conversations to understand linguistic expressions, gestures, common places and stereotypes.
A traveler returns home from itinerant conversations bringing in the heart glimpses of Genoa and breathtaking landscapes, from the patrician villas to the walls, from the port overlooking the sea, up to the panorama of Spianata Castelletto, which expands to the Maritime Alps and the Portofino promontory.
If you have read this description and found yourself in that traveler, itinerant conversations are for you.
