I’m a mamma of three, based in a small Tuscan town with my Italian husband and children. 

I’ve got the scoop on where to go and what to do.  As your on-the-ground connection in Italy, I’m able to give you advice and tips based on my extensive time living, working, and traveling here. I don’t just travel in Italy for a couple of weeks a year – I live here and travel here with my family year-round.

I have been planning vacations in Italy since 2004, from the Dolomites to Sicily. 

I also spent 10 years guiding cycling and hiking vacations globally, including Italy from north to south. I know what travelers need and want!

In over 2 decades of living, working, and guiding here in Italy, I’ve created an extensive network throughout the country that allows me tap into insider knowledge from locals like Clair, Suzanne, and Marica.

Here in Italy, I’ve taught language courses and university courses.
I’ve also traveled all over the globe, from Sweden to Argentina, from Indonesia to Tajikistan. 
Now, you’ll find me running after my three little boys, traveling in gorgeous Italy, and cycling the Tuscan hills.
I’d love to help you explore Italy – andiamo!
