After my graduation in Cultural Heritage, I started working with a USA Travel Agency and specialized in Italy. I discovered that I love to share my experience in travel and welcoming people during their visit. After some years in Rome, working in the Cultural Industry, I was back in Venice for a new experience with the Venice Hotel Association. For some years, I have been working with satisfaction as a tour leader (for Italian, English, and Spanish speaking guests). Since 2014 I'm a sommelier. I'm very active in social media since I love to share experiences and ideas with people, and I'm a sort of guru for the new event in town for my friends.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Venice and the Veneto Region. Rome. Food and wine tours (I'm a sommelier). Family travel. Honeymoon. Luxury travel. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"I studied the history of Art during my University, and at the end of my course of study, I discovered I love to share the beauty of my country. It is excellent when you see the happiness of the people when they arrived in a place they dreamed of for years. The smile of the people is the motivation for which I wake up every morning. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I lived almost all my life in Venice, but only a few years ago, I started cruising the Venice Lagoon by boat. A new world has opened up to me: days start with a bath even when at sea it is too cold, traditional restaurants serving typical dishes and excellent "prosecco", sunsets to remember. A real journey just a few minutes from home."
