Carlo P.

Lucca - Tuscany, LU, Italy

Ciao! My name is Carlo, I was born in Lucca, Tuscany.

I spent most of my life in this delightful town where I live with my wife and my two kids.

Since 1998 I've been working as a Licensed Tour Guide for Lucca and its stunning countryside.
After my studies I travelled all over the world, fascinated by artworks, costumes and different cultures.
I worked for 3 years at APT Lucca as the location manager for the Lucca Film Commission and with responsibilities for public relations with the media and press.

Lucca is beautifully preserved and totally undamaged by the ravages of World War II, it will be a pleasure for me to lead you through its remarkable past as well as its charming present.
Leave the stress of the modern world outside the Walls of Lucca, because this little corner of Tuscany will surprise and delight you with the elegance of its architecture and our way of life.

As you can understand I love my city! As a "local" I'm very proud to welcome you here to share my passion.
As my daughter once told me: "Dad, you have the most beautiful open-air office of the world!" - Yes my darling, you are tremendously right.
See you in Lucca!

A Recent Review of this guide

Carlo was awesome. He helped me with the payment the morning of the tour. It took a while because I was not able to do it the day before - technical problems with the website I guess. He told us the history of Lucca which we loved. He told us about the walls and how they were built to help against attacks. The churches are beautiful, towers. We learned about the silk trade and went to 1 of the 3 remaining shops that have a loom. We love Lucca and hope to return some day. The tour was great. Thanks, Carlo
