Ppss, do you want to discover a well kept secret? Join me and I'll open you the doors of one of the hidden gem of our region, near to Rome but completely different, where you can make a jump into the past, among tiny villages (we call them "borghi"), lush nature, green mountains for a great hike within old trees, waterfalls to admire, huge castles to discover, blue lakes where you can swim/kayak/sailing, and much more. I will take on kayak on the lake and hike our tracks until the peaks (not too difficult -;) inside the Park, of which I'm an official licensed Guide, telling lots of info about flora, fauna, history and legends of this unchanged Italy. I'll show you fantastic spots for your pictures and we'll meet together the locals. I'll host you for the night in one of the "Top 100''s Italian Borghi", with an amazing lake view, in an old stone house fully renovated, with fireplace and a big terrace overlooking the sunset. So, take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big cities, come to discover the Turano Valley and it will be one of the best memories you'll bring back with you! Paolo TURANO EXPERIENCES AHHHH...
