Hi! Nice to meet you!
I’m Simon, a 50+ woman young at heart and the soul of Wild About Travel.
I was born in Italy, grew up in Switzerland in a tiny little village in the mountains, and came back living in Milan when I was 18 years old.
After almost 20 years in corporate jobs, time was ripe and I quit. I launched Wild About Travel, the mirror of my passion for travel, story-telling, and photography.
I’ve been traveling solo for over 20 years, nurturing my attraction for nature and wilderness, and my love of art and culture. I never stop exploring Italy, my native country, and Switzerland will always be the place I call home.
When I’m not on the road and holding my camera, I leverage a long-standing experience in the PR industry, working with Tourism Boards and Brands on digital marketing campaigns.
Whether it’s the first time you travel to Italy, or you’ve already visited the main Italian landmarks and are looking for lesser-known destinations, there’s nothing like the advice from a local.
Check out my favorite smaller Italian cities and charming towns. Read about beautiful landscapes. Find inspiration for your next Italian journey and follow my tips to get the best out of your vacation.
Absolutely gorgeous! I have not been to Switzerland yet but am hoping to go partly because of views like these. ~ Jenna (Brazil)
We totally have this ghost town on our list of places to visit in Italy! ~ Jennifer (USA)
You had made me to regret of missed out Turin during my previous tour to Italy. Perhaps, this will be the reason for me to come back again. ~ Michael (China)
