Tour by Patrizia

I am graduated in Natural Sciences and I organize tours for ten years. My job is to let the participant in touch with nature. I also work in the school organizing lab science. I usually organize Historical and environmental tours in Rome and surroundings. I am a volunteer environmental association that protects birds and habitats. I'm an entomologist and study for many years the butterflies and I recently took part in a study on the wolf nearby the city of Rome. I also worked for ten years in a Travel Agency and I manage a B&B in a lovely district near Rome, Ostia Antica where I live for five years.
I was born in Rome and I lived there for 24 years, then I moved to Ostia, on the beach at 20 km from Rome and then after married I moved to OSTIA ANTICA which is between Rome and Ostia. The place where I live is very quite and surrounded by countryside and I wake up with the birds singing. I can reach the city very easily taking about 40 minutes so I do not miss the Theatre and the Museums of Rome
