What you can expect

Just a little bit putside of Amsterdam, lays a medieval town with picturesque sights. Want to explore this place? Join me on a day trip outside of the city to the cutesy town of Haarlem.

This little town has a truly authentic atmosphere and if you are looking for a real Dutch experience, then this place is a must. Here you can visit a beautiful windmill and the oldest 'hofje' foundation in the Netherlands. This place is also home to a magnificent cathedral dated back from the 14th century. Haarlem truly exudes history!

And for a little bit of the modern side of the town, learn about the museum “Het Dolhuys” and its interactive exhibits about all the Dutch artists, writers, and scientists with a disability or mental illness who were interned there.

Step into local shops like “Weidesign” a concept store, the cheese & wine shop “Bourgondisch Lifestyle” and other hip shops along the way! And if time allows or if you want to add it to your personalized tour, you can enjoy a nice time in the Haarlemmerhout park, where you can see the pavilion Welgelegen.

To commemorate your time in Haarlem, let's have a drink! Go to a unique brewery in a church and let the good times continue!

As an Italian native speaker I grew up surrounded by the natural beauties of my country, which made me appreciate different types of art.

Despite of my fiscal and legal background, I have always cultivated my real passion, which is visiting a bunch of cities and museums all over the world. This experience has enriched my spirit, until I moved to Amsterdam almost one year ago. Since the first time I set foot in this city, I fell in love with it.

I immediately realised that there were more treasures to discover in Amsterdam than the primary touristic places. So I spent a lot of time exploring every corner of the city, where I even found hidden charming places, which I passioned share with friends and family. From that moment on, I have dedicated my time to guide international and Italian tourists around the city of Amsterdam.

This job satisfies me a lot, because I see people really enjoying the time we spend together.

I'm a people person and I'm sensitive to people's needs and emotions, therefore I'm able to provide them with an unique and personalised experience."
