Interaction with guests
I'll be available. I work from home just next door, hence I'm mostly around. I do need to work, of course, but I'll be happy to meet my guests and answer their questions.
I'll be very happy to give you tips and ideas to make the most of your stay in Verona and in the surrounding area (the town is rich of art and history, but the surrounding area is blessed with a amazing natural beauties: lake Garda and the mountains, with endless possibilities for day trips).
I have also prepared a very detailed document, in English, with tips from an International local. I believe you'll find it very useful, it will give you ideas for things to do and see in Verona, but it will also tell you what to eat and (let us not forget) drink, when and where.
Available for check in different times of the day, but only if previously agreed.
Other things to note
According to Italian legislation a valid document (Identity card or passport) is required for each guest at check in.
According to local laws, all guests have to pay the Tourist Tax of 1,5 Euros per night per person (up to max 5 days). This will be paid in cash at check in.
The flat is run with total transparency, all incomes are dutifully declared and taxes are paid accordingly.
Please respect the place and the love and care it has been put in it.
Make sure you wash your own dishes (you can use the dishwasher too).
No smoking inside but there are two large balconies where you'll be able to smoke to your heart's content.
A tourist fee imposed by the local administration to be paid in cash at arrival, 1,5 euros per person per night (but only up to max 7,5 euros per person per stay). I will transfer this fee to the administration, all hotels, b&bs and airbnb hosts are requested to do the same in Verona...
I am Italian, and I grew up knowing one thing: I wanted to live abroad.
Which I did.
I've been living across Europe for about 10 years (The city I loved best? Berlin. The place where I had most fun? London. The place that took my breath away? Difficult to say... maybe Tokyo and Krakow...).
Anyway, it all worked beautifully, it was great fun, then in 2007 I became a mum and I went back home (Verona) to raise my kid.
After one year of night blogging and 2 weeks of sleepless nights (not because of the baby, but because of some genuine and thoughtful fear), I gave up my job and career and became a full time blogger and a mompreneur.
I love my life as it is and would never go back to a corporate life.
For the curios, my blog is called Bilingue per Gioco, it's about bilingualism and multiculturalism, it's a place where families share experiences about raising bilingual children in any possible language, but the blog itself is mostly written in Italian...
I joined Airnbnb because the time had come to hit the road with my little one, and I wanted him to appreciate that the world is full of wonderful people. Now I'm also a host, and I really enjoy welcoming the world to my place.
My motto: Bilingue non si nasce, si cresce.
I.e.: One is not born bilingual, is raised bilingual.
My hobby: Reading
My child's hobby: Sports
