I am a highly dedicated and professional driver. I am enthusiastic and curious, inspired by my work and delighted when discovering hidden corners and new realities with my clients.
Human interaction and intuitive insight are the secret to doing this job well. I pride myself on being sensitive and available, listening carefully to travellers' needs and paying the added attention it takes to make a travel and dining experience outstanding.
My personal interests have served as training for the work I take great pleasure in doing. I have travelled across four continents and thoroughly enjoy meeting people and exchanging ideas.
I am an avid reader and live by my father's creed: "Read! Ignorance is your worst enemy.
If you don't know history, you don't know who you are.
If you don't know geography, you don't know where you are".
Last, but not least is my passion for eating and drinking…and well!
I am a "buon gustaio" (literally translated: "good taster") and have extensive experience thanks to my mother's cooking.
Meals in my family were the "family briefing"; that moment when excellent food and better wine brought us together for a peaceful rundown of our day.
As for the future, I am dedicated to deepening my knowledge and expertise, in particular in the areas of food and wine.
I have learned countless things from my experience so far and am looking forward to unearthing new hidden treasures together on a day tour soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
Roberto was a wonderful host who customized a lovely wine-tasting day trip for us in Montalcino. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a pleasure to spend the day with. I hope our paths cross again with Roberto. It was such a memorable day!
