Daniela Grisoni - Certified Local Tour Guide

My name is Daniela Grisoni and I’ve been a certified tour guide of the Italian Lake District since 1996. I was born in this region and I have always lived here so I am proud to show my guests this beautiful part of the world. I am fluent in English, French and Italian.

Let me guide you from the enchanting Borromean Islands on Lago Maggiore (Isola Bella, Isola Madre, Isola Pescatori), with their luxuriant gardens, sumptuous palaces and picturesque fishermen’s villages to the Botanical Garden of Villa Taranto.

These gardens are considered by botanists as one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. I’m particularly specialized in my knowledge of historical gardens. Lake Maggiore offers not only some of the best gardens in northern Italy but also has some private gardens, for which I can agree a special opening for you. This is a region of real beauty and is close to my heart.


I love to show my guests the famous sights, but also the ones only the true locals know about – I can take you off the beaten track!  If you are interested in something different from the tours I’ve published, or if you wish these tours to be arranged in a different way, don’t hesitate to ask and I’m sure we’ll find the best way to organize your visits!

I can’t wait to welcome you to Italy and to be your guide here!
