Region Title

Exploring the world as a traveller, not as a tourist, is one of my biggest passions and I turned this love into my profession. As a Local Host, my mission is to share my knowledge and generate enthusiasm so my guests discover new and exciting experiences while travelling. By understanding their needs and wishes, I am able to show them a unique and customized local experience.

I was born in Puglia but spent many years in the Netherlands and Amsterdam before settling in Lake Como. These experiences gave me the perfect balance and appreciation of the Northern and Southern European cultures and enabled me to become fluent in English and Dutch.

My perfect day in Como would be...

Start your perfect day in Como with a typical Italian breakfast, cappuccino e cornetto, in Como city center and after a nice walk through the streets and while the morning sun glistens on the water, stroll down and catch one of the many ferry boats heading out on beautiful Lake Como.

Your first stop is in the village of Tremezzo, where you’ll visit Villa Carlotta and its famous terraced garden. While touring the villa and its many works of art, catch a glimpse across the lake of the Bellagio peninsula...your next destination. After crossing the lake, you arrive in Bellagio " Pearl of the Lake" This romantic village is known for its cobbled streets, elegant buildings, and breathtaking vistas.

Now it is time to refresh, time for a lovely aperitivo! As evening approaches, you can dine on one of the many terraces on the lake under wisteria-covered pergolas. While sipping a crisp glass of wine, savor regional Italian specialties. Buonissimo!
