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 has an amazing knowledge of the history and significance of sites. Very pleasant and helpful in every way. We learned a great deal, discovering connections among historic events previously under appreciated. Anna is gracious in responding to questions and willing to pause allowing us to absorb the beauty and significance of each site. Our tour with Anna was a highlight of our visit to Italy.
