Private tour guide Alessia

Alessia O.

Castellalto, Teramo, Italy

Hi, I'm Alessia. Welcome to Abruzzo, my home region!

Before we start, a little bit about me. I'm a traveler and a food lover, I write about food and travels. I enjoy slow travels, getting to know local traditions and learning from locals, just like I do for you in Abruzzo. I've been showing my guests the innumerable beauties of the region I grew up in since 2013.

I also lived in Canada, part of my family is from Nova Scotia, where I had the chance to discover my Canadian heritage culture. That is why I also offer heritage tours and paper research services to all of you that ask for some help in tracing their roots in Abruzzo.

I'm pretty sure you must have been to Italy at least once before but. . . have you ever experienced authentic Italy? Come to Abruzzo and let me show you what it feels like to enjoy the most authentic Italian lifestyle! Come with me in this stroll through Abruzzo marvels, cook with Italian ladies in authentic Italian kitchens, enjoy an espresso in a marvelous medieval town, take a walk through Italian dolce vita. . . and don't forget to bring your camera with you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Being with them was like visiting friends. We had fun, they were informative, knew the ins and outs of restaurants and the sights we visited and were eager to share Abruzzo which they clearly love.
