Hi everybody! I`m an environmental guide. I was born in a small but wonderful medieval village near San Gimignano and I am working in Tuscany. My tours range from trips to medieval villages to excursions to geological and naturalistic loci, from visiting landscapes and experiencing rural culture to walks around the typical hill villages along the Francigena Road (San Gimignano, Siena, Lucca, Monteriggioni, Volterra and so on). At the end of my walks, tourists can have lunch or dinner in one of the farms near San Gimignano or in the CHIANTI countryside: olive oil, wine, saffron, cheese, honey are only some of the typical genuine food. While travelling, I always try to establish friendships and create opportunities to learn about the Italian culture: the history and the natural environment of Tuscany in particular. My slow tourist tours are offered to share and spread the richness and beauty of Tuscany's places.

Bruno is a passionate, charismatic and knowledgeable local. His tour was unique and not your usual history lesson. He’s truly passionate about the Tuscany region and it’s evident in his tour! Highly recommend Bruno if your in the Tuscan region!
