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 or find me on Twitter and Instagram @feastonhistory

“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 ”

— Karen P, Feast On History Tour guest
