I'm a Licensed Tourist Guide and a Tour Director, and I love sharing the beauties of Lake Como and the local stories area with people interested in discovering the area.
Lake Como area has a lot to offer. Together we could discover this city, founded by the Romans more than 2000 years ago and considered to be one of the most lovely cities in Northern Italy, or we could get on a boat to have a look at the stunning villas on the shores of Lake Como. We could take the funicular, a kind of cable car that will take us on the top of a hill to get an amazing view over Como and the sorrounding mountains, or we can enjoy a scenic cruise to Bellagio, "the pearl of Lake Como", a quaint village well-known in the world for the landscape and the athmosphere.
I graduated in Art History at Bologna University and studied Photography in Milan. When I'm not working as a private guide, I teach Photography and, in my free time, I love traveling around the world. I enjoy working with families and kids and I'd be more than happy to plan a tailor-made tour for you. Please contact me if you need any info or you have any doubt.
Looking forward to meet you in Como!
A Recent Review of this guide
Everything was just PERFECT. Alessandra, our tour guide, manage to give us the best experience and help us with every detail. From the train trip from Milan to Varenna, the reservation of a local restaurant in Menaggio, the private boat ride and the private tour. The tour started at the exact time it was planned and we got to learn a lot of Lago Di Como history from Alessandra. I recommend tours by locals and Alessandra as the guide if you want to have the best time in the lake.
