This website is managed by a licensed tour guide in Venice. Exercising the profession of tour guide without the appropriate license is not permitted by Italian law. Thus, when booking a tour guide in Venice, or anywhere else in Italy, it is your right to ask for proof that he or she holds a valid licence before entering into any agreement. Under present regulations in Italy, as in most European countries, it is strictly forbidden to elicit the services of a tour guide from a different person, such as a teacher, art historian or representative of a cultural association; even if the service has been booked through a travel agent. Therefore, before showing any personal or degree qualifications, your tour guide must be able to prove that he or she possesses an official tour guide licence. Without this, he or she is not permitted to undertake this activity and will be prosecuted. Licensed tour guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums in Italian cities, especially in the city of Venice.
I was born in Venice.
I’m the mother of a 14-year-old child.
I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Cà Foscari in Venice.
I started my career working in a bank, first in Venice and then in Paris, where I lived for six years.
My university career, a love for my city and a flair for communication led me – once I had returned to Venice – down the new vocational path of tour guide.
In order to achieve this goal I attended training courses, and acquired the relevant qualifications.
I subsequently worked for 5 years as a volunteer for the Venice Museum Friends Association, managing didactic routes aimed at children.
The experience I acquired during this period was not only useful in a professional sense but especially valuable from the perspective of human interaction.
Since 2007, I have been a qualified tour guide in Venice.
