Hi, I’m Vale

I’ve lived in Florence for 33 years

I speak English, Spanish, Italian and some French

I am Tour Leader


Born in Florence to southern parents (wonderful Puglia) in 1988. I kept the best of both worlds. I studied languages in high school but I really learned how to communicate only in real life. I've worked as a shop assistant, waitress, theater host, singer, kids entertainer, occasionally cook, and writer in Italy and abroad. I'm a professional tour leader since 2017, which I think resumes everything I most like to do in life. I like very much to tell stories and to hear stories.
