La Spezia, SP, Italy

Good day to everybody, My name is Antonella and I live in Lerici, a famous medieval village near La Spezia, in the so called "Poets' Gulf " The English poet Shelley and his wife Mary lived there in 1822.

I love Art History and I have a degree in Patronage in Renaissance Italy from the University of Pisa.

I am an authorized tour guide and I have been working as a guide since 1991 (in fact I was the first licensed guide in La Spezia) especially in the 5 Terre and in the Regional Park of Portovenere .
I also work for the most important cruise companies that dock in Livorno and La Spezia such as Princess, Celebrity , Seabourn etc…

I am very interested in food and wine culture( I am a sommelier ) and it would be a pleasure for me to acquaint you with not only the most charming
corners of my region, but also its delicious wines and typical cuisine .

I'm waiting for you!


A Recent Review of this guide

We used Antonella in the Summer 2018 for a 1/2 tour of Cinque Terra--Highly Recommend! She was on time and prompt Took us to three islands by ferry, and had a driver take us home. Booked a lunch spot for us took. She was very knowledgeable....knows everyone and everything about the area. Also gave us time on our own to explore. No extra/hidden costs Would use her again anytime!!!
