I have only superlatives to describe Daniela and the work she does as a trip organizer and guide. I met her several years ago when I was looking for someone to provide my groups of travelers with authentic experiences in Umbria. Her knowledge and passion for the region and its people, as well as her warm personality make her the perfect person for the job she does so well. She is very organized and takes care of every detail so that travelers can relax and enjoy all that Umbria has to offer immediately upon arrival. Daniela is able to accommodate all ages and will make any time in Umbria with her an experience of a lifetime.

“ I have had the great fortune of traveling with groups of ladies and couples to the incredible region of Umbria with Daniella Cittadoni as our guide. Her vibrancy, passion and energy is beyond comprehension. She shares the great history and culture of this land in a way that touches your soul. She does it whole heartedly engaging each person individually. The experience is simply mesmerizing from absorbing the incredible historical stories, to having all senses engaged with smelling of colorful flowers, savoring wild boar or pasta with truffles and touching grapes off the vine and tasting the wine produced from them. It is an incredible moment in time when shared with this guide! Her knowledge and love for Umbria is palatable.
