About me

Welcome in Apulia: the "heel of the Italian boot". I live in the sunny and windy Salento: the southern and peninsular part of the region.
We are the Eastern Italian region, right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea with culture and traditions that are a results of the different influences, trades and dominations.

I'm passionate about my region and I like to share our wonderfull 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, there are always lots of events and things to do and the 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 friendy 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.

On offer: Walking and driving tours for individuals and special interest groups interested in art and history, archaeology, culture and traditions, wine and gastronomy, nature, pilgrimage.
