Walking Guide

I was born in Tuscany, in Poggibonsi, in 1972. My passion has always been nature and the outdoor life , in fact I was a boy scout for 10 years. I studied Natural Science at the University of Siena, and followed courses for experimental archaeology and survival. I specialised in fire lighting using ancient techniques and I obtained a licence for submarine biology. I am a member of a Pageant group called “ Terre d’ Elsa and an enthusiast of wine and food and the study of mushrooms. This is a new and unusual way to get to know Tuscany; interacting with nature in a land rich in history, culture and forests. You can walk on ancient paths, follow old roads, discover historic buildings and visit wineries and sample local food.

This is the real Tuscany: discover it with me!
