Meet our staff

We are a group of crazy people who’s fully passionate about this country and about this job.
Italy is our home and we feel proud of it, that’s why we love sharing our thoughts, experiences, knowledges etc. to the people that decides to come to visit this incredible country.

The staff is in constant change and constant growth. So it’s always enjoyable to have new people with us. That makes us a bigger family with many stories to share.

The fact that our family gets to meet new people on every tour, makes an every day journey of our job. Cause at the end of the day we always have something incredible to talk about.

The encyclopedia one. First of all, this guy speaks a bunch of languages! So he not only has a perfect communication with all of our hosts, but as we mentioned before, he’s seriously an encyclopedia. He is crazy about history and a great story teller, so being with him is such an amazing experience.
“Story moves us. It is what we where and it brings us to what we are now; that’s why I love what I do and I love to share this passion to rest of the people”

Literally, Gabri is like a hyperactive minion.
At the beginning she can be pretty quiet , but when you meet her there’s no way to stop her mouth! Which is amazing cause as much as she talks she listens so you can have any conversation with her.
“I love traveling, having a good conversation and my country; so this is the perfect job for me. I do my passion of traveling while I talk about the beauty of my country. I am so proud of what Italy has for me and for the amazing hosts we get to meet everyday”.

So as you can see even if we are really different, we all create such a fun group that has so much passion for our country.
Italy is our home and we feel so proud of it! The beauty it has not only on it’s history but also on it’s habitants makes us want to show people from all over the world what this country means to us.
Some days could be harder than others but at the end our main goal is to make everyone have a real Italian holiday where you get to enjoy Italy at it’s best!
And every day means an experience for us too cause not everybody get’s the opportunity to have a job where your clients become your hosts; hosts become our friends and they make us the family we are today.
Where we feel incredibly thankful for where we are now.

Italy on a Budget Crew.
