I was born, raised and I still live in a small town called Cecina, 30 minutes south of Pisa and the port of Livorno and about an hour from Florence.
I have been working with passion every single day and met wonderful people from all over the World making myself love more and more my job and the beauties of my country. Having the opportunity to show you where I live, talking about our traditions and be lucky to be your guide for one day, is undoubtedly an honour for me, and I will do all my best to make your day in Italy memorable and unforgettable!
As a Driving-Guide, I can provide tours with comfortable 8 seater air conditioning vehicles (Mercedes or similar), with water and wi-fi on board so that you can share the moments of your tour with family and friends.
From Florence to Pisa, from Siena to Tuscany and the Medieval villages of San Gimignano and Volterra, then to Lucca, Bolgheri, the Etruscan Coast, the Chianti Wine Region and Cinque Terre, popular destinations or unknown ones. . . together we can plan and customise the tour according to your wishes.
No matter where you are staying, in a Hotel, on a Cruise, in the city or countryside, I can pick you up anywhere you wish to start a great day together!
( If you are traveling on a cruise ship, I have all the permits to pick you up directly at the port by the ship i. e. Port of Livorno, Port of La Spezia, Portofino, Portovenere, Port of Piombino).
( If you are staying in a Hotel, I can pick you up directly by the concierge of your accommodation in Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca or anywhere else! )
My tours are for everyone, kids friendly ( I can provide child seats upon request ) and wheelchair accessible ( I can provide the tour with a special licensed vehicle ).
So, small groups, more attention, more fun!
I will give you lots of information during the tour and you can ask questions anytime!
I promise you a great day out, because I want you to remember Gianmaria not only as a guide but also as your new friend in Italy!
I look forward to meeting you!
Grazie e Arrivederci!
A Recent Review of this guide
Gianmaria Mariti was a wonderful tour guide. He was on time, knowledgeable, charming, cheerful, helpful and very patient with four older women. He drove us through areas of Italy we had heard of but had never seen. He chose a wonderful, upscale restaurant with delicious food. He arranged to take us to the Viareggio Carnivale Museum which was a "once in a lifetime" opportunity. We will never forget it. (It also helps that he is incredibly handsome and a very nice person.)
