Between 2007 and 2012 I’ve been organizing tours, trips and journeys around Italy for exchange university students from all over the world. I also have a great passion for nature, food and farming; I’m myself an olive oil producer, a food expert and an olive oil sommelier.

I’ve studied architecture, spent here all my life and I always had a huge passion and love for Rome. I’ve read hundreds of books about its history, legends, artworks, urban development and city evolution. I’ve also a huge collection of old pictures of Rome and I love to show them during my tours. I’ve worked as an official guide in Ostia Antica, as a Private tourist driver and also took part to a some European Comenius school exchange programs. I’m always really happy to show around the city to students and foreigners and make them feel and live the true Roman history.

I’m an official Rome and Vatican guide since 2010; I have a degree in Art history and I have a great passion for Rome, where I was born and grown up. I love to show foreigners and Italians the most beautiful spots of my city but also the secret and no so crowded ones, those that only few know. I like bringing them to life with interesting and funny facts about the daily life in ancient Rome and in the Vatican.
