Carlotta B.

Gravedona ed Uniti, Como, Italy

I grew up in Gravedona, a small village on Lake Como.

My studies in Foreign Languages, my great passion for travelling, exploring places and coming in contact with new Cultures and people made me understand that I should work in the Tourism business. So, after a long period away from my home-town, I had the feeling to go back and start a new experience.

The beautiful land where I live helped me a lot to build my dream: here art, nature and man's work join together and give life to amazing itineraries that always satisfy our senses and curiosities. Boat trips, a walking tour among characteristic villages, a lunch in a typical restaurant are only some of the numerous ways to discover Lake Como and its surroundings… I would like to show you the most genuine side of our culture and tradition and let you be part of our local atmosphere: my tours are usually "out of ordinary touristic routes".

My other big passion is "food and wine": for this reason last year I took a post-graduate course in "Geologia e gusto: Narratore del Gusto, Comunicatore di benessere e Selezionatore delle tipicità italiane"; it helped me to develop technical and methodological skills in "food and wine" sector and to identify quality and local productions linked to a specific "terroir". Now I can apply this knowledge to my tours, organizing food and wine tastings and showing places in which traditional cuisine and genuine local products are protagonists.

I organize private tours for individuals or small groups; I can also customize my tours according to your requests and needs: I will make for you personalized proposals.

A Recent Review of this guide

Carlotta is a brilliant and warm person and ideally suited to both guiding and hosting. She grew up on the lake, traveled to school by hydrofoil each day and has multiple degrees in art and food/wine. She is a wonderful example of true Italian grace. She and her husband Dennis are also entrepreneurs with an organic restaurant in Gravedona which you must insist on going to! She was patient with our questions and our shopping and I would highly recommend Carlotta! Oh, she speaks 4 languages...Bravo!
