I was born in La Spezia near Porto Venere and Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera. I studied Art History in Milano and am a qualified and licensed tour guide. I have been part of the Cinque Terre National Park guides since 2017. I have written a couple of guide books about the area, so you could say I'm something of a local expert. I would love to show you around the many gorgeous towns on the Italian Riviera.
