Tour Leader, Tour Designer, Tour Operator Liason

About Me

I am Ilaria, and my life is as fast-paced as a train speeding down the tracks. Jump on, buckle up and hold on tight!

Life is to be discovered.

A bike tour is the perfect way to discover Italy – to go at your own pace, and truly become a part of it.

I began working as a tour leader in 2009 because I liked to bike, and could not imagine myself enclosed in an office all day. It was the beginning of a wonderful experience that opened my mind and heart. Now I have jumped on the Siciclando train, and I can’t wait to welcome you into the fold next.

I love this job, and I look forward to showing you my home country.
