I am a certified tour guide in Piemonte since 2011 but I have an extensive experience as tour manager since 2007, with some of the most important North American Tour Operators, leading tours all over Italy, Iceland and Switzerland. I am here to welcome visitors who decide to explore a corner of Italy less known than other regions, with so much to offer: medieval castles, Gothic and Baroque churches, hills and mountains with many stories to be revealed. I like to focus my adventures around culinary experiences with food tastings, cooking demonstrations, meeting local people who prepare local food. This is a great approach to understand the local culture, mixing it with our history, geology and traditions.
Please note that transportation is never included in my tours. If you rather have a private driver I can arrange it but that will significantly increase the total cost of the tour. I suggest renting a car and in that case I can join your vehicle. Sometimes, in case of short distances, I may allow one or two guests to ride on my car for an extra fee (smaller than a professional driver).
A Recent Review of this guide
Marco was great. His insights into Piedmont culture as well as the foodstuffs that were available to the residents of the area were most interesting. The purveyors he chose all demonstrated the different aspects of traditional Piedmontese cooking. I highly recommend him.
