Having a private and authorized guide is the best way to get to know a territory, its culture and its people. With a private guide you can have access to unknown wonders of art in areas of incomparable beauty, you can admire the great works of art in major museums, you can learn about the world of wine and gastronomy at your own pace and away from the dynamics of groups and mass tourism. Come and discover this paradise with me!

I was born and raised in Sardinia. After many years in Milan, where I received my Degree in Languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and having spent one year in California, I moved to Tuscany 15 years ago. I was an assistant manager in a prestigious hotel and then became an official tourist guide for Siena and its province. I love meeting people and sharing my passion for this beautiful area which has welcomed me, it is both a pleasure and an honor.

Food and wine for us Italians is a culture and for this reason I frequented (eagerly) a sommelier course and also courses to become a Cheese Taster ONAF and an Extra Virgin Olive Oil Taster. My passions are history of art, wine, gastronomy and local traditions. In my free time I like to travel, read and cook, a recent passion but well-practiced!

I try to convey my knowledge with passion and humor and involve my clients, whatever their needs, from children to grandparents!
I live in Montisi, a charming medieval village of just 400 inhabitants in the Municipality of Montalcino, with my husband who is a wine making consultant.

I am expert on:
