Hi, my name is Stefan, I am the owner of VerdeVerde Travel. After more than 20 years in Italy and some 30 years employed in the travel industry I have now chosen to work on my own. Verde is the italian word for green. VerdeVerde = green green. During my many years in Italy I wanted very much to open my own company and welcome italian tourists to the Stockholm. I organize environmental friendly city walks in the green capital of Stockholm. I was born and raised in Västerås, but came to Årsta/Stockholm when I was five years old the very first time. I fell in love with the city and its history. Today I live in Årsta, just 15´minutes of bicycle south of the citycenter. I started my own company to have the freedom to choose my way of working. I believe in the power of meeting people. Through curiosity and friendship we learn something new. Every day. I love to share knowledge and passion of Stockholm with visitors from all over the globe.


I am authorized tourguide (in english, italian and swedish languages) in Stockholm, I can be your tourleader, I also do contracting and production. I am a lectureholder, innovator and have many years of experience of sales.


I give you more than 30 years of experience in the travel industry, information, historical facts as well as curious local knowledge. I do promise you quick and personal response. I offer you tailor made city walks according to your demands.

Considered one of the most important works of the modernists, it evokes a Nordic philosophy on nature, life, and death. There are also a number of beautiful chapels and a visitor center.

Gamla stan - Old Town City Walk

Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and this is where Stockholm was founded in 1252.


All of Gamla Stan is like a living pedestrian-friendly museum full of sights, attractions, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop. The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook. This 90 minutes city walk will take you to some of the most famous buildings but also to less known streets and to admire some of the most beautiful doors and doorways.
