Stella S.

siena, italy, Italy

Hello! My name is Stella, I was born in Siena Tuscany and spent most of my life in this gorgeous city where I live with my two kids.

I am an official tour guide in Siena, the Chianti, San Gimignano and the Valdelsa, Montalcino, Pienza and the Valdorcia and Montepulciano and the Valdichiana in Italian, English, French and Spanish.

I received my B. A. in humanities from the University of Siena with a Major in English and South American literatures mastering with great passion art and history and my MBA in tourism economics from Bocconi University in Milan.

At the conclusion of my studies, I received a grant to study art and anthropology in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I travelled in many different countries and enjoyed discovering their artworks, culture and social and political condition.

I worked as journalist covering art, travels, cinema, theatre and politics. I was always interested in meeting people and exchange ideas and passions, so that welcoming and guiding guests being a tour guide in my hometown was a great opportunity for me.

I've been guiding art and kids tours, wine and food tours in Siena, San Gimignano, the Chianti, Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano from the year 2000 and I'm enjoying my tours every day more!

A Recent Review of this guide

Our tour with Stella was excellent! She showed us parts of Siena that only someone who knows the city well could share. We returned to Piazza di Duomo the next day and toured the catherdral and the Santa Maria della Scala. Descending to the lower levels to see the Roman, Etruscan (and older!) artifacts was fascinating. It was all so much more meaningful thanks to information she shared with us.
