Laila Thea Volpe

Your Personal Guide, Travel Consultant, Tour Designer and Friend in Italy

With over 30 years of experience in travel and in sharing the fascinating mysteries of Italy, I have learned to appreciate even more the life style, foods, wines, art and history of this country. Every day I discover more exciting places in this wonderful Country

I enjoy introducing real Italy and its hidden secrets to my clients

I was born in Genova, Italy and raised in San Jose California. I have travelled extensively and have varied interests. I studied languages and started my career as a Simultaneous Interpreter which gave me the opportunity to travel for work. I have always nurtured an interest in different cultures; their literature, art, music, traditions, and of course, their languages

I fell in love with Rome and its history, archaeology, and art and how it influenced much of today’s judicial, architectural, commercial, culinary, and religious traditions. I enjoy museums, music and dance, and partaking in sporting events like hiking, boating, biking, and deep-sea diving. I learned that Italy is a world of different micro-cultures from one region to the next, and is a fun, happy sun-shining country with great food and gelato

I created FollowLaila to share Rome and all of Italy with my clients

I enjoy creating new itineraries for my family of clients and leading them through the footsteps of history in order to appreciate this incredibly rich country and what it offers. One never ceases to discover something amazing and new. Yes, my clients return year after year and we continue our travels and discover new fascinating facets of Italian life style. Italy is relaxation, good food, beauty of nature, smiles and music, simple things in life, culture and history of man. Join us
