Martina M.

Pisa, PI, Italy

Hi everyone! My name is Martina and I am an enthusiastic art historian, with an M.

A. degree from the University of Pisa.
Thanks to my passion for art, architecture and local history, since 2007 I have been working as a Licensed Tour Guide and Tour Director in Tuscany and Cinque Terre.
I love creating unique cultural itineraries and culinary tours for single travellers, family and small groups who wish to experience a warm, authentic, human connection!
My goal is to make the most of your time in Italy, so I tailor the tours to your needs and interest in order to give you an unforgettable time and 'new eyes'!

I design:
-Art, architecture and history tours
-Ancient arts and crafts tours
-City walks with visits to off-the-beaten path attractions
-Day tour of Tuscan hilltowns (Volterra and San Gimignano)
-Culinary Tours and cooking class in Tuscany coutryside
-Truffle Hunting and Truffle tasting in San Miniato
-Extra virgin olive oil tasting (+ visit of olive grove and olive mill)
-Cheese tasting in an organic farm located in an amazing scenery
-Wine tours in the countryside around Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano and on the Etruscan coast (Bolgheri)
-Boat tour of Cinque Terre (end of April- mid of September)
-Cinque Terre hiking & walking tours

Note: some of the tours can be combined!

If you are looking for a half/full day Guided Tours and you wish to travel at your rithm, discovering off-the-beaten path attractions, not to mention local food and wines, just book a tour with me!

In the years I have gained expertise and experience in tourism practices that enable me to create very specific itineraries, according to the style, interests and time available to travellers.

There is certainly to learn, but not at the expense of fun! The discovery of the sites also includes the most interesting areas of city life, like cafes, shops and nice meeting places.

For further information, do not hesitate to contact me!
I will get back tp you within 24h.

A Recent Review of this guide

Martina was a wonderful guide from the booking process to the tour. Her knowledge of the area and the incredible history of Lucca was spectacular. Despite having issues with getting to our port and having to change travel plans she worked with us to ensure we made the best of the time we had in Lucca. Martina was very patient while our fashion loving friends visited shops along the way. I highly recommend Martina if you are in the Pisa, Lucca area.
