Anna M.

Verghereto, Forlì-Cesena, Italy

I got my tour-guide license in 1986 and have been enjoying this profession ever since.

Ravenna is where I was born and spent most of my life. When I was a kid, my father used to tell me lots of stories about our hometown. That is probably what made me dream, very young, to become a guide: to show everybody the treasures of my town and tell the stories I heard about them.
Later on, thanks also to my degree in history (University of Bologna), I started to carry out researches in archives and I still enjoy writing about local history, geography, cartography and the landscape. I love travelling, I know Italy pretty well and visited several countries in the world. A scholarship as an exchange student gave me the chance to spend a whole year in the US - a fundamental experience for my personal growth - and that's when I started to speak and study English.
I also have a passion for the countryside, and together with my husband I run a farm in the uplands of the Apennines ridge, where I currently live, growing organic fruit and veg, among woods and springs of clear water.
Tell me your suggestions and I will arrange unique tours, tailored to meet your personal tastes and desires. Together we shall discover this wonderful part of Italy - Romagna and Montefeltro - with its gems of art, precious mosaics, beautiful landscapes, a generous countryside, delicious food, wine, cheese. . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Anna was extremely knowledagble on Ravenna's history and mosaics in general. She was able to tailor the tour for my family's interests and was a fount off information at all the sites. It was invaluable to have her to explain both the mosaics meaning but also the history surrounding them. I could not recommend her highly enough! She brought to life the town and mosaics for all of us!
