About me

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!
