About me

Io lavoro

My name's Elisabetta Ivaldi, local Qualified Tourist Guide for Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Tour Manager in the world. I've been working in the field of tourism since 1987 and in 1991 I took the license of Tour Manager and started working with groups of tourists around the world.

I've been a qualified Tourist Guide for Parma and its province since 1992 and I work in Italian, English, Russian, Spanish and French.

I really love my town and I try to transmit my passion to all the people who want to discover the land where I live, rich in history, art, culture, music and food traditions which have made it famous all over the world.

Two very important elements in my job are both research and study and this is the reason why in 2006, after the degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, I took the degree in History of Art as well.

Besides the classical itineraries I offer the popular "Gourmet Tour" for those who love food!


  • Special visits for schools (every age);
  • Specialized visits to museums and exhibitions in town and province;
  • Visit to Parmesan cheese factories, Parma ham and Culatello di Zibello D.O.P. curing plants, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar farms and local wine producers (on request: tastings and lunch with local produce).
  • I speak Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Russian, so contact me in order to optimize your itinerary and enjoy your time at the best.

I invite you to contact me in order to build a tailor-made itinerary based on your interests: you won't be disappointed!
