As an art history graduate, living in Rome for me is both magical and practical. The city’s cafes and cobblestones play on countless imaginations. And at the same time the city’s quality of being an open air museum makes it the most logical place to study and teach about Italian design and culture. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to study in both Florence and Rome and specialize in Renaissance architecture and the Etruscan civilization by learning out in the field and living history. It is now my great fortune to share my knowledge and passion for Italian art, architecture and culture though private walks of the eternal city and freelance travel writing. I have been working as a guide and writer based in Rome for more than 12 years and am licensed by the New York Department of Consumer Affairs and the European Tour Operator Association. My tours have been featured in the Sunday feature section of the Buffalo News and on the NBC Buffalo Evening News and I am recommended by the United States Embassy in Rome. My travel articles have been featured in The New York Post, The Patriot Ledger, Buffalo Magazine, Wanted in Rome magazine and in AAA travel guides. I am passionate about exploring and sharing the roads less traveled and promoting local businesses. My tours are intimate and specialized. I look forward to helping you plan your next trip as we get a taste of Rome together like locals.
