My favorite things about my cities

I’m a professional tour guide with 2 year experience focused on the historical artistic events. I’d like to drive you from the constantly developing contemporary Dublin, one of the greatest point for the global economy, to the early “town of the ford and the hurdles”: Baile Átha Cliath. This incredible journey to the past is today possible thanks to precious hints that the City unveils in key areas saved from the high-speed nature of modern times. I can offer you a tour guide shaped on the base of your interests in a city characterized by a thousand shades, in perennial conflict between tradition and innovation. From the beginnings to the fusion of the Celtic and the Catholic tradition, which The Book of Kells is an invaluable example, looking for the tracks of the Viking Town to the Norman City. The first English invasion of the XII century represents the origin of a contrast during till the XX century. This influence is still visible today in the Georgian streets and squares, while the originality of the Irish architectural genius is enjoyable in monuments like the Old Parliament Building. The will of independence is breathable in the Dublin’s main thoroughfare: O’Connell Street: transformed, with its monuments, by a Georgian street to the flag of the Irish independence.
