Tour Director Profile: Chiara Baroni Posted September 20, 2018
Italian by birth and German by marriage, experienced Odysseys Unlimited Tour Director Chiara Baroni possesses a detailed knowledge and personal connection to the three regions in which she leads tours: Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. And, more importantly, she is keen to share this knowledge with the groups she oversees.
“I love to be with people…I love that I can show places I love and know well, and share with others my experience and knowledge,” she says.

Chiara’s love and knowledge of her home areas of Europe allow her to take her guests off the beaten path wherever possible, “…where I can show them where the locals eat, live, and hang out,” she says.
In Florence, for example, Chiara brings guests to the Otrama neighborhood, with its squares and hidden alleys; in Lugano, it’s a little Romanesque church with an amazing fresco. And in Lucerne, she invites guests to climb the city walls for stunning Alpine views.
When not leading tours, Chiara lives in Berlin, Germany’s cosmopolitan capital: “I love history, art, food, theater, and music. Berlin has all of these things, so I am very happy to be living there,” she says.
You can look forward to joining Chiara, or one of our other fabulous tour directors, on our Classic Germany, Alpine Splendor, Northern Italy, and Southern Italy & Sicily tours.
