Guide Bio

A little bit about me and my Tuscan life… After a few experiences abroad in Ireland and Australia, I finally decided that Tuscany, my native land was the place where to settle my own business and life. Willing to become a tour guide and start touring Tuscany with my customers, years ago I got my certifications and licenses to be a professional tour guide of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra and Tuscan Countryside. Tuscany is the place to be if you want to appreciate a delightful mix of scenic beauty, art, history and a taste of the rustic Italian life while walking the streets where Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo once lived. I love travelling the world, and I work in tourism since 1998, I am in my 30′s now, and my job is taking good care of my customers. I can offer a variety of tours for English, Spanish, French and Italian speakers, and as I am a local guide, just born beside the leaning tower of Pisa, I will be pleased to share with my customers my passion and knowledge about art, wine, food and traditions and show them the Italian wonderful heritage. I am organizing, tailoring and leading tours of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, 5 Terre, Tuscany and Italy for newcomers or experienced travelers, for large groups or for families. Best period I suggest and I prefer to visit Tuscany is the off-pick season. Spring (march to may) and fall season (September to November). It can be good to avoid the heat and crowd, and enjoy the amazing and relaxing Tuscan countryside and its historical city centres. During the busy summer season the best way to celebrate the end of a fabulous day at work is enjoying the sunset on the beach after a long swim. In the winter time, when I am not researching for new ideas for my job or leading guided tours, you can find me travelling the world or maybe in the tuscan countryside picking grapes and olives and of course enjoying “La Dolce Vita”. Just do not hesitate to contact me if you wish an unforgettable and perfect day in Tuscany…
