Her clients say:
“Our morning in Siena with Antonella was one of the highlights of our three weeks in Italy. Not only is she charming, informative and funny but she is someone I could imagine being friends with if I lived in Tuscany. Rick Steves describes her as “enjoyably opinionated”, which she most certainly is, but also honest, responsive and charming. My husband and I were so appreciative of how she showed us a few of the historical sights of Siena and brought to life in our minds the crazy horse race in the campo. Her recommendations for lunch and dinner were spot on and she also recommended a restaurant in Florence that was another highlight of our trip. If we go back to Siena or Tuscany I would love to stay at her accommodation in Tuscany. She is a true delight”
“Antonella is a brilliant tour guide – anyone who reads her reviews will gather that. But she is also thoroughly in love with Siena and the region, the art and the neighborhoods, and the people. She is smart, she is witty and she is full of energy. She is also a brilliant organizer who can take away all of your logistical difficulties.”
“Antonella Piredda is one of the best guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We toured Siena with her, and when I came back in another year, I took another tour with her again–because she is so interesting. Not only does she know her history, and culture, but she fills you in on behind-the-scenes details… We went to places we never would have seen without Antonella, looking at a home with rooms unchanged since the 18th century, Etruscan caves where people (and wine) were hidden during WWII, driving off the main road to an ancient church, the last sunlight slanting through the surrounding olive trees. I would follow Antonella anywhere!”
