A short biography
I am professional tour guide in Rome and I started my guiding activity in 1995.
Born and raised in Rome after graduation in Humanities at Rome’s university I started my tour guide activity and I passed the exam to become an Official City Guide. Since then I have worked for major tour companies as well a lot of individual travellers, families, little parties .
I love this city despite its hostility and whenever I have some free time I enjoy exploring some unknown corners or hidden gems, or simply rediscovering some of its masterpieces.
At university I specialized in language studies and I ‘m always been fascinated by the tales, novels and diaries of travellers who came to Rome to explore the ruins of the Eternal City, and when the chance to become a tour guide was offered to me I did not hesitate to accept: the idea of meeting those travellers and to help them to discover the wonders of Rome was enticing .
Besides my job I also love to cook, travelling and run. I have run several 10k races and half marathons. I have two young children, Lisa and Lorenzo aged 12 and 7.
I consider myself fortunate since this job offers the possibility of meeting so many people everyday from all countries, to get different points of view and exchange ideas. After a long tour day the best reward is somebody thanking me because I made their day really special!
