IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT COMING TO NORTHERN ITALY IN SPRING OR SUMMER OF THIS YEAR, I'M HAPPY TO INFORM YOU THAT ALL HOTELS IN MY AREA ARE PLANNING TO PROLONG THE TOURIST SEASON AND WILL STAY OPEN UNTIL DECEMBER 2020! I'LL UPDATE MY PROPOSALS AND MY TOURS ACCORDINGLY, AS SOON AS WE ARE SURE ABOUT THAT.
I HOPE TO MEET YOU SOON!
I've been a certified tour guide since 1996 and I was born and have always lived in the region that I would be proud to show you!
. . . the enchanting BORROMEAN ISLANDS on Lago Maggiore (Isola Bella, Isola Madre, Isola Pescatori), with their luxuriant gardens, somptous palaces and picturesque fishermen's villages;
. . . the BOTANICAL GARDEN OF VILLA TARANTO, considered by botanists as one of the most beautiful gardens in the world;
. . . the charming little village of ORTA and the inspiring SAN GIULIO ISLAND on Lago d'Orta;
. . . the SACRO MONTE of Orta, inscripted in the UNESCO World Heritage list. . .
These are the highlights of the region, but what about discovering the places off the beaten tracks? If you are spending more than one day in my area, it would be nice to experience something more: an exclusive PRIVATE BOAT TRIP to enjoy the banks of Lake Maggiore dotted by its many villas and gardens; GOURMET TOURS (vineyards and wineries, cheese refiners, gelato makers. . . ); DESIGN and FASHION excellences; COOKING CLASSES. . .
I'm particularly specialized in HISTORICAL GARDENS and Lake Maggiore offers not only some of the best gardens of northern Italy but also some PRIVATE GARDENS, for which I can agree a special opening for you.
If you are interested in something different from the tours I've published, or if you wish these tours to be arranged in a different way, please ask me and I'm sure we'll find the best way to organize your visits!
Moreover, if you see from the calendar that I am not available on some date, please contact me anyway and I'll try to find a solution!
A Recent Review of this guide
Daniela is a first-class guide and her passion for the Piedmont and Lago Maggiore regions is inspiring. Not only did she entertain us with fantastic background information and historical insights, but she also arranged flawless logistics, making the beautiful sites of Orta and Isola San Giulio enjoyable for two disabled travelers. They had an amazing experience (as we all did). Hats off to Daniela for her very professional work. We hope to see her again! Grazie mille!!
