TUSCANY, AND MUCH MORE!
Do you love walking and hiking? Are you planning a walking tour in Italy?
Would you like to create a tailored tour away from the usual tourist routes?
I'm a professional walking guide who provides single or multi-day walks in the most beautiful regions of central Italy: Tuscany, Umbria, Marche and Lazio.
Walking and hiking with me means discovering the breathtaking landscapes, the nature, the history, and the traditions of the “boot”. With me you can experience the magic atmosphere of the Tuscany countryside around Florence, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Cortona, San Gimignano and Montepulciano, walking from one hill town to the next.
You can enjoy the spectacular views in the Apennine mountains from the watershed between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. Then I can help you experience the wild coastline of Tyrrhenian Sea or look for tombs, temples, and altars in the Tuscia region, the land of the Etruscans and the Romans.
You can interact with local people, craftsmen, farmers, and cheese and wine makers living the traditional Italian lifestyle.
Speaking of Tuscany wines… we can also explore together the areas of Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano. We may walk on the stone roads and paths which run through vineyards, olive groves, fields of sunflowers, mountain grasslands and forests; all enriched by medieval castles, abbeys, hermitages and typical stone houses, along with traces of the art geniuses Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Piero della Francesca.
Your tour can be personally arranged thanks to my knowledge of itineraries and accommodations including hotels, B&Bs and Agriturismos. After each walk, a family operated trattoria welcomes you to taste the local cuisine.
Let me help you make your vacation in Italy an unforgettable experience!
