Cosetta D.

Orta San Giulio, Novara, Italy

Hi, my name's COSETTA, in Italian it means "a little thing", it's funny because I'm quite tall!

Originally from Verona, I lived then in Milan, but one day I happened to visit the romantic village of Orta S. G. on Lake Orta and I suddenly fell in love with it and its scenic lake! I finally moved here with my husband and our dog Olivia in 2006 and became a licensed local Tour Guide soon after that. In Milan I got my Master's Degree in Italian Art History. Now I do not miss my previous job as a reasercher at all: I'm working full time as a Tourist Guide on Lake Orta and its surroundings - on Lake Maggiore as well - and I love my job so much because I'm quite sociable and I really enjoy showing the local gorgeous sites to travellers and tourists! I'm waiting for you, I promise you'll never be disappointed with this magic region! Of course I can also accompany you to other sites around here: just take a look at my tours and contact me! Arrivederci!

A Recent Review of this guide

We loved being with Cosetta who was so giving of her time and attention to our needs. She was great at adjusting the tour as needed. The visit to the island was very interesting. Cosetta is highly professional and also a joy to tour with.
