1. Where were you born and raised?

I was born in Florence but I’ve always lived in Borgo San Lorenzo, where Creative Edge Travel’s Living Slow in Tuscany tour takes place.

2. What did you do before you became a driver?

I’ve done many jobs but the most interesting one was working as the manager of a mechanic shop for industrial trucks.

3. How did you decide you wanted to be a driver for visitors to Tuscany?

The private taxi business was passed from my father to me. I decided to take the same path he had chosen to take care of clients who want to visit my land.

4. What do you like most about your job?

I like to talk with my guests who come from all over the world to know my land. As an Italian sommelier from the AIS Italian Sommelier Association, I also enjoy recommending our best dishes and wines.
