Licensed tour guide (in Italian and English language), food and wine lover (1st level virgin olive oil taster, 1st level sommelier AIS) and tour leader for private tailor-made tours, leisure and MICE (Meeting Incentive Congress Event) groups (interested in art, history, and archaeology; nature; wine and gastronomy; culture, traditions and folklore; religion and spirituality), in Italy and mainly in Apulia Region (Castel del Monte and Trani; Bari; Alberobello and Valle d’Itria; Brindisi and surroundings; Lecce and Salento; Taranto, Manduria and the west coast) and Matera. Thanks to my long-standing experience in tourism I can support you (as freelance or thanks to some trustful partners) also with some incoming services and special interest activities (culinary and foodie experiences, photo tours, artisans’ workshops) to discover, enjoy and taste the authentic apulian lifestyle.
Discover and enjoy the authentic Puglia

Welcome in Apulia (or Puglia): the sunny and windy “heel of the Italian boot”.



We are the Eastern Italian region, right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea with culture and traditions that are a results of the several different dominations and cultural and economic influences.



First of all I’m a traveler (for leisure and work) and I like to know foreign countries and their culture, customs, food, etc.

I have been working in tourism for about 16 years (as freelance or with tour operators) in different sectors: tourist guide, tour leader and travel planner either for free individual travelers either for leisure groups either for incentive and congress travelers coming from USA, Canada, Australia, Asia and Europe and travelling or cruising in Italy .

I’m passionate about my region and I like to share our wonderful attractions and culture with other people.

Apulia is an “easy region”: the weather is quite warm all year long (the best time to come is from March to November but it’s worth to come also in winter time), people is friendly (… but only a few people speaks English or another foreign language), there are always lots of events and things to do and our Mediterranean diet is healthy and tasty for everybody (you will be spoilt for choice among meat, fish, pasta, rice, legumes, vegetables and fruit recipes).

Travelers who come for the first time in Apulia usually are fascinated by the Apulian day light and the colours of the seaside and the countryside.

If you’re looking for an hyper detailed and boring excursion I’m not the tourist guide for you but if you like a friendly and easy going person who will make his best, thanks to his experience and empathy, to understand and satisfy your needs, to suggest the right choices for your interests, to introduce in our culture and traditions, to help you in spending a very nice time … then contact me.
