I think we always have something new to see or review, no matter where we are in a known or unknown place. That's why I've signed up for Rent a Local Friend, to share my passion for meeting places, people and having new experiences. I am a retired fashion executive in search of new professional experiences. I graduated in Advertising, and worked with graphic design, photography and fashion retail. I have traveled all over the world, but always want more. I am passionate about food and dining experiences, kind of geek and currently I teach fashion and do some retail consulting.


Food, photography, movies, nightlife, cycling, books, retail, art, video-games, design and, of course, travels.

By working with fashion i am kinda of retail expert.
Being a foodie i do know a lot of places to have the best or most typical (or cheaper) meals in town.

Giu is amazing!!! If I could guve him 10 stars out of 5 I would. His English is great and he is really organized with what he is showing you. I spent a whole day with him in SP and it was my first day in Brazil. I felt I have seen so much in a day, much morw than I would have been able to if I was on my own. Apart from taking me to places I requested , he told me about history facts and we visited samller places on the way that were very interesting. You have to have a good stamina and be prepared to wlk a lot. However our day was so produ tive in terms of sightseeing and the same time really relaxed. I felt incredibly comfortable and at ease with Giu. He found a great vegan restaurant for me and best places to try brazilian coffee and traditional food. And even in the evening where I believed I couldn't do more, he suggested to go and see Batman alley, which is crowded at day time. And it was a fantastic idea. Giu is really professional and I would recommend him to anyone.

The whole night was great. Giulliano really went out of his way to show me the spots that he thought I would like. The only downside was that it was one of the coldest nights and not a lot of people were out. But we made the best of it. He even took me to his favorite spot. If you want have a great night with conversation, laughs, and fun def be his friend.
