Hi, I’m Cecilia.
Let me help you discover the details of Italy.

I was born in Argentina from a Florentine family, and I moved to Italy when I was very young where I studied Tourism. I worked as a Professional Congress Organizer for several years in Florence until we moved to the US where I studied Communication. I speak English, Spanish and Italian, and I have been an Italy Travel Consultant Specialist for over 20 years founding my company, Unusual Italy in 1998.

I enjoy sharing my expertise and knowledge to help you discover and enjoy our beautiful country.
