Rome, Italy

Rome and the Sabine (Orvinio)

with Valentina

Valentina

We will discover some of the most fascinating places in the Sabine.

We'll get to Orvinio, one of the most charming burgs in Italy, and taste the amazing pizza bianca of the bakery, we will enjoy the small streets, and then drive to Scandriglia for a traditional home-made pasta, in a family owned 'hostaria'.

If we feel like walking, before eating, we will have a short, quite easy tour within the Lucretili Park, we'll climb up to a spot with a breath-taking view over the mountains of Tuscany, Abruzzo, and Lazio.

Orvinio, Scandriglia, Parco dei Monti Lucretili.

Please note that the price DOES NOT include trasportation: I can help you in finding a car to rent with or without a driver, or I can show you the way if you already have a car, and it should be an off-road vehicle as the streets are in very bad conditions. The price DOES NOT include the restaurants and the food and drinks you might want to try, but I can arrange for you a special menu with a fixed price.

I'm the typical Italian woman, petit, brown hair and brown eyes. This is the description I've always given of myself when I was abroad, with people who had no clue of my personal life, of my family, my friends and hardly knew where Italy is actually situated. I was born in the country with the highest percentage of UNESCO's heritage sites worldwide, where even the stones have a story to tell, and where it is possible to spend an entire dinner talking about food, water and wine. I love my country, the beauties, the culture and the way of communicating. I also hate Italy as it is the messiest country in Europe, it is highly disorganised and the concept of 'on time' can be interpreted in several ways except the proper one. But let's say something more about my working experience! After graduating magna cum laude at the Università Roma Tre in Lettere, which is a mix of Humanities, Social Sciences, History and Literature, I started in 1998-1999 to work in journalism and communication, mainly in the fields of human rights, cultures and new technologies. I was amongst the first Italian web-journalists, back in the late '90s, employed by a national radio, that later assigned me to cover as foreign correspondent the trials disputed at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), based in The Hague, The Netherlands. Afterwards I was hired by the Communication Office of the newly born International Criminal Court. War is an interesting topic but peace is more in my chords. I quit the job in The Hague and went back to Italy where I worked in internationally oriented small companies for performing arts. I lived in several countries in Europe, including the Western Balkans, and in Canada, where I had the chance of getting a glimpse of the film festivals industry and of the multicultural media industry, working as foreign culture freelance correspondent for Italian media and being a junior McLuhan fellow at the University of Toronto for a research on multiculturalism, interest that brought me also to Israel thanks to an American Jewish Committee seminar program. I then worked in the organisation of festivals such as Eurovisioni and Roma Fiction Fest. Currently I am the president of the cultural association La Giraffa Impertinente set up in Mentana, province of Rome, Italy, with the aim of promoting cultural activities in my town and in my area, to strenghten connections with other awesome territories, and to promote our wonderful culture. In my spare time I enjoy contributing to tourist social networking tools such as Trip Advisor, and I occasionally write my own blogs, such as http://provincialtourism.blogspot.it/.
