Giorgio I.

Bari, BA, Italy

Ciao, I'm Giorgio from Bari. I am 31 years old and I am a tour guide since 2010; I am a great lover of the traditions of my my land and my region APULIA (PUGLIA); my tours are meant for anyone who wants to immerse themselves, if only for a few hours, in the authenticity of Bari, Matera and the best of Apulia.

I like to cook, eat, travel and discover new things, so my tours have often a gastronomic nuance because I believe that there is no better way to understand a culture, especially in southern Italy.

After spending the last 9 years guiding people in Bari old Town, I can be sure that you will enjoy my tours through the narrow streets. You will try to speak, eat and act like a local, don't forgetting the artistic aspect of the ancient city.

During our walking tour, it will be easy to meet children playing soccer in the street while their mothers produce handmade fresh pasta in the most hidden corners of the old town, or have the pleasure to chat with the fishermen repairing their nets at the fish market;

My passion for my land stems from my love for the people that live here and, I assure you, you'll love it too

My region is beautiful for the diversity of landscapes and experiences that you will have the chance to appreciate: crystal clear beaches, authentic villages, ancient olive trees, vineyards, castles and UNESCO sites will take you to discover amazing people that can make you fall in love with Puglia, the heel of the boot.

I will guide you to the most important places of interest such as Polignano a Mare (Volareee, oh - oh), Monopoli, Alberobello (the village of Trulli), Castel del Monte, Matera (the city of the "Sassi"), Castellana Grotte (caves subterranean), Ostuni (the white city) and you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the authenticity of these unique places and typically Mediterranean.

SASSI represent an extraordinary urban ecosystem capable of perpetuating the farthest prehistoric past ways of living in caves up to modernity.

Known as "la Città Sotterranea" (the Subterranean City), Matera is well known for being one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. On October 17, 2014, Matera was declared Italian host of European Capital of Culture for 2019

A Recent Review of this guide

I wish I could give Giorgio more than 5 stars! It was a fantastic tour of Alberobello and Matera. He even stopped at some beautiful sights along the way. We learned a ton and the day went so fast. I cant speak highly enough about the quality of tour we received.
