I'm Gianluca, keen traveler and experienced tour leader, born and raised in Puglia (South Italy) I really, really LOVE my country! Its sights, its people, its smells and tastes... And, as only an italian can do, I can drive you around my beautiful country: sightseeings, food&wine itineraries, street food tours, cooking classes, etc. I've improved my english skills in Ireland, where I used to live and work in tourism. I've been blessed to travel all over the world: far and wide in the USA, all over Europe. And I've learned about different cultures travelling to India, Indochina, Japan, Middle East and Turkey, Central and South America, Caribbean, etc. Let's travel together far and wide the South Italy!
