Staff


Matteo

Hi, I am founder and Ceo of the company. I am proud to lead such a special team of professionals. I was born and raised in Verona, my city, but I love Lake Garda even more, where I try to escape whenever I have free time. I love to travel and discover new places and cultures, my next trip on the list is Indonesia. I have been practicing judo for over 30 years, and I sail for regattas, but also for holidays and navigation in the Mediterranean sea.

Andrea

I am Andrea, the co-founder of the company together with Matteo, with whom we have been friends since we were young. I was born and raised in Verona. I love to travel and explore the world in adventure, now I often do it with my family in a van. I am passionate about sports, in addition to training constantly on a bicycle, I have done many Triathlons which have also made me love running and swimming. Now I mostly practice trail running when I can carve out my free time from work.

Francesco

Daniela

I’m Daniela and I’m a proud member of the Ways family since I arrived as intern after my degree in Tourism and Languages. I live in Verona but I was born in a very small village in the countryside where you can only see rice fields, chickens and cows. Tired of trying to speak with my chickens in the yard, I decided to move to the city to discover new things and meet new people:) Between Verona and I was love at first sight because here I can feel like myself and I can find all the things I love: wine and sport. I’m a hiking lover and I usually train by the mountains between Verona and the Lake Garda... and after a long walk, there’s nothing better than a glass of Valpolicella wine! What’s next? Of course a hiking in the amazing Italian Dolomites!

Guides


Isabella

Hi, I am Isabella and I live in Verona, but I lived in many Italian cities. My mum is from Venice and my dad from Verona, so I feel 100% Venetian. I studied to be a teacher and a journalist, but then my passion for travel has prevailed. I love travelling and I have always traveled a lot, near or far. I love seeing places, meeting people, trying new experiences. Japan thrilled me, I would like to go to Kamchatka. Here I specialized becoming a tour leader and a tour guide to tell people about the beauty of my homeland. To this I combine my other two passions: food and wine. What to say? Italian DOC!

Alessandro

Hello! My name is Alessandro, and I'm a wine lover for a long time. I live in Valpolicella, the land of Amarone, and I've been a tour leader for more than 10 years in the wine tourism. I'm so curious and last years I started exploring more other wine region in the north of Italy, with my friends and colleagues Francesca, Andrea and Elisabeth, such as Prosecco hills, Piedmont and Langhe. I'm looking forward to take you around these beautiful wine regions as soon as possible.

Elisabeth

I was born in Sicily, but I’ve decided to move to Milan because I believe it is the most European city in Italy: full of motivation and innovation. It is a city that never stops and it is always in development. I’ve studied Literature and I’ve always been very interested in the historical and artistic field. What better way of knowing new things than travelling? At first, I’ve decided to learn about the Italian end European heritage and now I am focusing on the natural findings overseas. My dream destination: Latin America. I am a very curious person and thanks to this characteristic I can be easily passionate about a lot of different things. Among them, there is the interest for the wine-making field. That is why I will be happy to lead you to the discovery of the beautiful Milan and I guarantee that you can taste a glass of North-Italy wine.

Cristina

Ciao, my name is Cristina. I live and work in Verona, my hometown. I’m a chef, a sommelier and a cookbook author. For many years I used to work in a commercial company, but I decided to change completely my life to follow my passion for cooking. I started my new career, after graduating at Ipsoa Cookery School in Verona. I love traveling and music, particularly jazz which I play with my saxophone, as an amateur.

Andrea

My name is Andrea, I am 28 and I love to travel. I was born in Verona, the city I love, but at the end my degree in foreign languages my only desire was to travel! My first real travel has been in Australia, a beautiful Country that I explored with my van for a year. I love nature, and Australia has given me breathtaking landscapes. Right after I spent many months in Southeast Asia, among a thousand adventures on foot, by motorbike or hitchhiking. In Spring and Summer I love to show people the beauty of my country, and in Winter I fly away to follow the sun and admire this wonderful world.

Francesca

Vicentina since birth but Sicilian blood. After graduating in Economics of Tourism, I lived in England and Australia. I fulfilled my great dream to do solo trip by exploring Thailand and Indonesia. Thanks to the passion of rock climbing, I admired the ocean from a different perspective. Always in love with Italy, I explore places with my customers every day. What is travel for me? it is growth, connection and freedom.

Sofia

Hi, all! My name is Sofia and I am a licensed Tour-guide. Turin is the city where I work and live, but to be fair I wasn’t born here: love brought me in this beautiful city years ago. And with the exact same love, I will let you discover its great beauty. I am always thrilled when the chance to learn new things and visit new places comes up. My wandering spirit made me call home many different countries: I lived in Wales, Spain and in so many Italian cities you cannot count on your fingers. I constantly look forward to new travel destinations; next on bucket list: Abruzzo!

Priscilla

I’m Priscilla, a proud veronese that was brought up in lovely New Zealand. I am a mix of passion for: art history (my university degree), music (my part-time occupation) and sports (I played golf competitively when a teenager and I’m keen on skiing and love to bike). Music has a major role in my life: songwriting gives me wings and I have the luck to be able to produce music from time to time. On a regular basis, I sing in the Schola Cantorum (the choir) of the Cathedral of Verona, one of the oldest in the world still operating. I am very excited that my profession gives me the chance to unveil the many gems that Verona has. Meeting people through my profession is something that I cherish and I always look forward to be inspired by their own stories.

Benedetta

I’m a “very veronese” girl, born and raised in the old town of Verona. After studying foreign languages at the University of Bologna, I spent years living abroad, mostly in Spain and in Hong Kong, but I finally decided to be back home and started falling in love with the history of the city and getting surprised by its beauty. That’s why I became a tour leader and a tour guide: I love showing Verona and discovering it every day through my guests’ eyes. So, join me for a walk or a ride around my beautiful town!

Mirko

I am Mirko, a tourist guide of Milan and Lake Como for many years. I am proud to have joined the Ways team. I was born and raised in Milan, that I know every corner and above all of the historical and artistic sites, because this is my true passion. I hope to meet you soon and share some of my knowledge to let you experience the beauty of Milan
