My story

I came to Rome for the first time in 2014 and fell in love with this city. Everything here is special. There's a light aroma of roasted chestnuts, fresh coffee, and azaleas' fragrance in the air. The slopes are full of snow-white daisies. The Roman Sun embraces you like an old friend after a long trip. It feels like home here for me from the very first moment I saw the Eternal City. And I don't want to leave anymore.

What do I do here?

I used to work in international fashion companies (like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Moncler), I moved to Moscow from the Ural Mountains to grow and develop further. On weekends, I walked around the historic center of the capital city, every time choosing a new route. I loved discovering and getting to know the metropolis this way. I kept doing the same thing in Rome. On weekdays, I studied hard to learn the Italian language as soon as possible. After 3 months I was almost fluent. Actually, thanks to the Romans I got my first insider tips: what to see in the capital, when to do it better and why. On weekends, I would pick some unusual place and head there. Trust me, some of them are much more interesting than the hackneyed tourist routes! During the pandemic, my husband and I cooked Roman cuisine live, and then we realized that almost no one knew about the existence of regional dishes in Italy. So I started working on the DRIM project: Rome, which is unknown to tourists and its cuisine.

What's the best of my city?

Rome itself is already awesome. I genuinely think it's the most beautiful city in the world. But if you turn off the main streets, you can discover a completely different place. Where history and cooking are intertwined, where traditions and Roman cuisine are especially reverent. Each dish, restaurant, and trattoria has its own unique story, which I will be happy to share with you.

My tours secret sauce

I will take you along the locals' paths through the genuine Roman places and unusual locations where one can hardly find a tourist. My aim is to create a unique experience of full immersion in Roman culture. So that for a few hours you'd feel like the locals and would fall in love with this city once and for all.
