About Me:

Through walks, lectures and stories, I use art, food and history to connect the past to the present. Get in touch with me at danielle@feastonhistory.com 


“Danielle made the columns at Paestum almost light up before our eyes. Suddenly we felt transported in time instead of confused (and maybe bored) by the ruins we were standing on ”
