Originally from Germany, I am a portrait photographer. Having lived in Italy for many years and also having spent my childhood summers in France, it might offer some comfort to travelers whose English is not their forte.
I live with Nancy, an artist who is also multilingual. Between the two of us, we are well informed of cultural events around town and can offer lots of tips on how to get around (and where to shop).
We love good food and have quite a few friends who are chefs, so we aren't short of recommendations on where to go and eat well.
