My name is Desiree. I am a 31 year woman originally from the Netherlands. After studying tourism, International business and Languages and working in the Wine industry for 4 years I decided it was time for the next adventure. I love getting to know new cultures, languages, food, wine (& cocktails), reading and dancing. I'm very passionate in sharing my knowledge and interest of the beautiful Italian cities, that I was lucky enough to visit. I started working for a walking tour company 3 years ago that provides in-depth accessible tours for people looking to do tours on another level. It is called Through Eternity Tours.
