About me:

Buongiorno! My name is Serena, I am a tour guide and I simply love it. I studied Art History in college and I also spent a year studying and working at the art restoration institute of Rome. My passion for art, archeology and history runs deep and my goal is share this passion, with other people all of the beauty of my city. I fell in love with Rome and its history, art and architecture and I felt I wanted to know even more about its hidden places, stories, legends and secrets that make this city so special.
Luckily, my studies perfectly matched my constant curiosity! What I do when I am not working? I love to spend time with my family and my friends (my ‘soul family’) and of course with my two little dogs (Mamma’s princesses!!!) I love cooking, and eating too- by now I could get master’s degrees in pizza, pasta and gelato! And I love to travel, discover the world, experience new cultures. Traveling is the only way of spending money that will make you richer!

Serena
Being a tourguide is...

...the best job ever! Being part of your vacation is an honor and my goal is to make your experience unique. When you are happy with your trip, I am the happiest tour guide in Rome! I think that everyone should be a tour guide for a day to see the wonder the eyes of a guest when they see our beautiful city the first time- it makes me fall in love with Rome again and again and again! 

Sharing my passion with you is the only way to give sense to all the important things I studied. I love to travel, explore the world and open my mind by coming into contact with people from all different cultures, which is why being a tour guide is the perfect job for me- when I work, all the world comes to me! 

 

My favorite Italian Gestures

And so / Allora

Serena gesture01

I use ‘allora’ so much during my tours. For some reason, it doesn’t really come out in English when I am speaking.


It can mean a few things: So? And? And so... And then… I use it to start a new sentence, to make sure you understood what I said or that you wrote the name of the best gelato place correctly, to check if you are ok or if you need a rest.

Allora is used for everything- that’s why at some point during my tour, my clients ask, “Serena, what does ‘allora’ mean?” Now you know!
