Fulvia L.

Pugliola di Lerici, SP, Italy

My aim is to let you discover Italians' Italy in the countryside of the very section where food is central, and music and art seems literally to emerge from the very soil.

Here is where Ligurian cuisine and Michaelangelo's marble, where Cristopher Columbus and the unsung heroes of 5 Terre and the finest wine all seem to pour from a cornucopia unique in theworld.
Each tour is designed for the demanding traveler who wishes to deepen his understanding of Italian dishes (Ligurian or Toscan), the maritime coast (from which many a sailors besides Columbus has emerged) and the opera at which Italy reigns dominant.
Each step of each tour is under the careful personal guidance of a specialist in the field of interest. Paramount is context, the matrix of culture and the artefact that emerged from it. Only by immersion in the mix can the traveller fully comprehend the connection. There can be no substitute for the scent of saltspray as one cruises the Riviera, the taste of Limoncino as it issues from its source, the vision of whitness as marble is hewn from mountainside, or the feel of ancient village streets I call " home. "
Selected for your experience is the farmhouse, the castle, the medieval village, the cliffside vineyard emblematic of an Italy that is intimate and unforgettable, far from the usual tourist crowd, an Italy only Italians know yours for the having with quality and insight always the determining standard.

A Recent Review of this guide

Fulvia! She is quite the tour guide. She knows everyone and everything there is to know about Cinque Terre. No waiting in line with Fulvia. The beauty was beyond words. It poured rain all day, but even with that, she made this day fun and exciting. Highly recommend! Great guide. Great tour.
