I’m a certified tour leader guide , personal shopper in Tuscany & wedding planner in Italy.
My website is :
Born in Pistoia, where I live , a hidden gem in Tuscany , between Florence and Lucca.
My first passion were shoes : working as footwear agent for about twenty years with my father who first started this profession , we attended to the main shoe fairs in Europe and in Italy. Spreading the MADE IN ITALY in the world was a great satisfation indeed.
Think I became a personal shopper ante litteram as I did it much more in advance because all my foreign clients needed a guide for their shopping, ,suggestings for their dinner & lunch and beautiful places where to stay.
My passions are so many 😋😉 food , fashion, shoes of course ! thick foam cappuccino ( if possible sipped in a historical café ) tea , gelato , pizza & homemade pasta ,books, arts, old bookshops, museums,wine, theatre , photography ,travel,cinema , chocolate, dessert wine….wine and writing & sharing all this with you!
Call London my second home as I lived there when I was twenty and fell in love with it.
Sardina island, located in front of Tuscany, is my summer house since I was ten, that’s why you will find here a dedicated category for this amazing island with its delicious food , a stunning wild nature & strong traditions.
When I am not travelling you can find me in my Restaurant Pizzeria” Il Pollo d’Oro ” in Pistoia , http://www.ilpollodoro.com owned by my husband family since 1962.
