  • Description


    Hello, we are Veronica and Massimo, a Norwegian/Italian couple interested in meeting people from different countries, sharing cultures, learning languages, and enjoying outdoor activities during their free time! We live on the hills near Verona, in a beautiful natural place, near a national park and the lake of Garda. We both work in the fields of design, the internet and entrepreneurship.
    We enjoy spending our free time in the wonderful natural places we are surrounded by, doing several outdoor activities with friends as hiking, running, mountain biking, tennis, and windsurfing. It would be great to improve our English with our guests and to have some help in the house. Our guests are always welcome to join us in our sports and outdoor activities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The travellers would be immersed in the typical Italian atmosphere in one of the best places in this country, discovering our culture, history, traditions, and typical food. We'll be visiting together the best historical places in Verona, a city rich in culture, a mix of Roman 2000 yr old architecture, but also medieval and renaissance. We'll often be travelling during the weekends to the national park, the lake of Garda and the mountains. We'll be happy to help in learning the Italian language, entrepreneurship, economy, politics and design for those interested in these subjects.

  • Help


    We would like to learn from our guests about their culture and get some help with improving our English, and we'll be happy to help with Italian if you would be interested in learning. Some help in the house would be appreciated too.
