Hi there, I’m Lauren! I’m a Californian who moved to Italy in 2010 and started Unlock Italy Guided Tours with my partner Luca in 2017. This blog focuses on advice, tips, and insights based on years of conversations with visitors who want to know where to start when they visit Italy. It also includes the “Laurenissima” story of how I moved to Italy in 2010 and what it’s been like to live here (select: Laurenissima below for all of these posts). Enjoy!
