I take care from 3 years of bike rental and plan guided tours in unique places and archaeological sites full of history and culture, where a turist couldn't get oherwise. I was an e-bike builder and great history and art lover: putting toghether these passions I let guests love the best of Etruria in a eco friendly way.
Knowledge of land, love for our roots and research for food and wine excellences allow me to lead guests into an experience not as viewer but as an actor, like they couldn't be in a different way.

Wow! What a wonderful time, with AMAZING views! Paolo was wonderful, told us about the history of the area, and was very attentive of our needs during the ride. We highly recommend this experience, if you want to enjoy something other than the typical walking tours. Our lunch at the end of the tour was delicious too!

Mi hanno raccontato di posti incredibili, di una passione travolgente nel raccontare ogni dettaglio e dell'attenzione di Paolo nel metterli costantemente a loro agio. Assolutamente raccomandato, esperienza perfetta!

My husband and I had such a great time on our e-bike adventure with Paolo! We rode around the vicinity outside of Orvieto and ultimately ended up at Civita di Bagnoregio. The entire day, Paolo made us feel welcomed and was super informative about the history of the area. We learned a lot and enjoyed the experience of cycling, walking around the castles, tasting local wines and eating snacks at the end. Paolo went above and beyond and met us the next day to take us to a cantina that had been closed the day before. We could tell that he loved the region and in turn, our love for the area grew as well!

Il tour organizzato da Paolo è davvero un'esperienza meravigliosa! Si ha la possibilità di visitare posti unici e godersi a pieno la natura circostante grazie alle e-bike, che rendono una pedalata di quasi 50 km (andata e ritorno) davvero alla portata di tutti. Sia le tappe intermedie che Civita sono luoghi realmente incantevoli. La conclusione del tour con il pranzo in centro ad Orvieto è stata la ciliegina sulla torta di una giornata davvero splendida. Paolo è una persona fantastica e con i suoi racconti e le sue spiegazioni è stato capace di guidarci lungo tutto l'itinerario. E' bello sapere che ci siano persone come lui che riescono ad interpretare una tale offerta turistica con professionalità, passione e autenticità.
