Welcome to the Veneto! I am Daniela and I have been a local guide since 2009. I have studied art and history and I am still attending specialization courses on these specific subjects.
I was born in this beautiful region, surrounded by beauty and harmony, that's why I work hard to deliver the best tailor-made experience to those tourists who come here for the first time, or those who want to go deeper to the exploration of art and history.
I love what I do, and I do what I love, which makes me a lucky person indeed!
I wait for you in Veneto for sharing with you the wonders and the rich surprises of my beautiful region.
