About me

Welcome! My name is Antonella and I live in Lucca, yes, inside the city Walls!!!

I got my Degree in Foreign Languages at Bari University and, after travelling the world as a Tour Leader, about 25 years ago I decided to stop in Lucca where some members of my family come from.
I am also a Qualifed Lucca and surroundings Tourist Guide, a Tour Leader (worldwide) and also a Disability Manager licensed at Università Cattolica in Milano (Italy).

I have a solid Tourist Guide experience and I am very passionate and very knowledgeable about Lucca, wonderful city, and its surroundings.

I am not a driver! I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
I can speak: Italian, English and Spanish

I am also a mom (my son is 19 years old), I love motorbikes (I’ve got a yellow Honda Honet 600), I love art and ceramics, archery and walking, Middle Ages, painting and telling stories.

I wish I will guide you to discover Lucca!

Talking about me:

Kathy’s feedback on ToursbyLocals: Definitely the best Tour by a local we have taken. Antonella is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and forever gracious. Her love of Lucca, it’s culture and history made us all feel we never wanted to leave.
