TUSCANY, AND MUCH MORE!
Do you love walking and hiking? Are you planning a vacation in Italy?
Would you like to create a tailored tour away from the usual tourist routes?
I provide 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 and Montepulciano, walking from one hill town to the next. 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 from 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 wine… 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. After each walk, a family operated trattoria welcomes you to taste the local cuisine.
Your tour can be personally arranged thanks to my knowledge of itineraries and accommodations including hotels, B&Bs, and Agriturismos.
Let me help you make your vacation in Italy an unforgettable experience!

"We spent two days with Marco, and saw so much in that time, things we would never have found on our own. Marco was patient with our gazillion questions, full of information on all manner of things, and imaginative in each day's routing. We were tired happy little puppies as evening came"
