Your guide

I’m Monica Vanin, a licensed tourist guide and hiking environmental guide, with a true passion for nature, culture and art, food & wine making and tradition, and a deep love for the wonderful region where I live, Emilia-Romagna.

I have been exploring its treasures for forty years: trips, studies, stories and encounters are the source of inspiration for my tours. I will accompany you to discover this wonderful land, with an eye for Emilia landmarks such as Parma and Piacenza, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Bologna, as well as for ancient castles, villages, small cities with a great history, enchanted landscapes and natural environments – and of course the traditional delicacies of Emilia region!

Being a tour and environmental guide means to me telling and getting deeper into the peculiar characters, the “soul” of the wonderful places we will visit, as well as listening to and learning from each person, each encounter, sharing with you in the end a unique immersive experience and a new look at this land’s reality.
