I was born in Veneto but I lived out of this region for several years, doing different jobs, until I identified my real inclination and passion: leading people through one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice... So I started studying in order to become first a tour leader and then a tour guide and to provide travelers with light and fun but educational tours! I love seeing a twinkle in the eyes of people who visit and enjoy this city... the greatest satisfaction for me is being told that they had the feeling they were taking a walk with a friend...!
