Born in Italy, makes the first trip of her life to the UK at the age of 40 days; she studied tourism back in Italy obtaining 2 qualified professional diplomas, respectively as Tour Leader and as Tour Guide.

This was the first brick in the wall. The following years she added many other bricks on that wall working for important international companies: German, Dutch, US, Australian, Italian companies always travelling for business, on vacation or on visit to friends in Italy and abroad.

This lifestyle opened her mind and gave her an outstanding capacity to interpret well other people's desires.

She devotes her spare time to organizing cultural events in Lucca and preparing her guided tours in Lucca and surroundings discovering new corners and things to do.

A guided tour with her is an unique experience not only for the quality and quantity of knowledge she gives to the visitor but also for the way she does it: she adapts to the rhythm (pace) of the person or occasion; she follows the seasons, suggesting the correct things to do at the right moment. She makes life tasty, leading visitors to discover culinary joys and beverage tastings (tea and beers included) and she listens, with great curiosity, to other people's experiences.
