Andrea Innocenti – tourist guide in Tuscany.

One of our guide is Andrea Innocenti. Here his own presentation.

I’m a Nature lover and Environmental Guide. I studied Natural Science in Florence for 6 years and I have a Mater’s Degree in Nature Conservation and Management. Since 2009 I guide Italian and foreign groups in natural and semi-natural trails. Montecatini Terme is my town and my main territory is the wonderful region of Tuscany. I worked with environmentalist associations writing projects for new parks. The Research Centre of Fucecchio Marshes ask for my collaboration in guiding groups or writing study on local issues.

I recently published a book on history and nature of Valdinievole, the territory between Lucca and Florence where I live.

The book is in Italian, but I’m working at the English translation. I hope to finish soon.

Here you can find more information about my book.

My fovourite hiking is the Sasso Pisano trail, where many steam emissions come out from the ground in a natural contest very uncommon. But I like a lot also trails on Alpi Apuane, on the hills near Montecarlo, and the one near the seaside of Populonia.

One of the reason why I like Tuscany is its mixture of history and nature that intertwine strictly together in wonderful landscapes.

I like sunny weather and hiking during spring and summer season with people who like nature like me. Contact us for further information.

Donatella Zaccagna -Tourist guide in Tuscany

Donatella Zaccagna is a birdwatching expert, ornithologist and tourist guide as well. Here her own presentation.

I am an environmental guide, living in Valdinievole, a valley characterized by a pristine nature and medieval hamlets.
My love for nature was born in this area when I was young, which led me to study natural environments and wild fauna.
Since 2007 I have developed an interest in ornithology and birdwatching and since 2009 I am among the members of the Tuscan Ornithological Centre (C.O.T.).
I worked in natural parks, such as RESTOCONLIFE, an European project on Pianosa Island in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, concerning restoration and conservation of habitats and fauna. Because of my passion for mountains and biking, I work as an environmental guide at Fucecchio Marshes and as environmental educator in schools to teach children respect for nature.
My desire is to share these passions with other people, accompanying them to visit the places I like, as Apuane Mountains and ancient hilltop villages rich in history.
