My name is Stefania, an Italian-born, English teacher and young entrepreneur. I've always been fascinated by different cultures, my friends are from all over the world. I got the chance to live in foreign countries, and I know how it feels like to be a lost wanderer in a new place! I've worked in tourism/ hospitality for the past 6 years. I worked for a Tour operator and a tour agency here in Rome, my background experience and skills have turned me into a real Cicerone! In my free time I enjoy traveling and dancing, as well as cooking!
