Antonella M.

Marola 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

5 stars! Antonella was our guide in cinque terra. She was fabulous! She met us at the port and made everything so easy for us. She had incredible knowledge and history to share and stories. She catered to all of our needs - even took us to some of her favorite shops and she helped us in so many ways imaginable. I had never used Tours by locals. I am hooked! Thank you Antonella!
