Our Local Guide

WONDER TOUR GUIDE

Hello! My name is Alessio, I was born and raised in a small town next to Lake Maggiore. I can currently speak Italian, English, German, French, and a bit of Spanish. I studied to become a translator, but I dedicated all my life to tourism. I started working in ancient villas for the Italian National Trust (FAI) as a tour guide and I soon became a local guide on the Borromean Islands, where I worked for 3 years.

I took my license as a private tour guide in 2016 in the beautiful city of Florence and I started working as a freelance for different companies guiding people in Milan, Rome, Venice, Florence, Lake Maggiore, Como, and Garda. Not to mention London and Paris.

I love my job because I love traveling and because I have the chance to meet new people and share all of my knowledge with them. During these tours, I hope we will enjoy our company and learn something new from the places we are going to visit together. I can’t wait to see you all on tour!
