“On our first trip to Italy we were blessed to meet Daniela Cittadoni who is a registered tour guide based in her home town of Spoleto, Umbria. She introduced us to the breath-taking scenery, fantastic food, history and warm, friendly people of her area. If you are contemplating a trip to Italy and want to have an intimate tour of beautiful Umbria I strongly recommend Daniela. Not only is she a wonderful person and highly knowledgeable but she also truly wants you to love her area, as she does. Someday we WILL return!"

Since then, over the many visits my husband and I have made to Italy. Daniela has become a beloved friend, a sister for life, someone we always look forward to connecting with on a deep level.”
