Ciao from a sunny Italy! My name is Gianni Stanghellini. I am a Ph.D. geologist. I have been working in the guided walking tour business for 18 years. I was born and raised in Siena, a medieval town in Tuscany, Italy. I live and work in Siena still as I have never found a good reason to leave this beautiful place.
Walk About Italy is my small business. Multiple day tours and single day tours in Tuscany, Amalfi Coast and Sicily. First of all we hire only local guides and drivers. Secondly we go to small family-owned restaurants. Furthermore we visit small farms where you can talk to the farmers. Finally we provide contact with the locals as much as we can. Certainly we will show you around the places where we would take our family and friends. We strongly believe this is the best way to deliver a true Italian experience.

“The traveler sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see”. G.K. Chesterton

TUSCANY

Walk from hamlet to hamlet. You will fall in love with architecture, history,  wines and food. Breath the enchanted atmosphere of Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza. Certainly If you have never been to Italy you cannot miss this trip.

AMALFI COAST & POMPEI

Trails with sea view. Local food and wines. Off-the-beaten-track places. Furthermore traditional dance and music show. 4 starred hotels. Ceramic hands-on lesson. The ruins of Pompeii and much more!

SICILY & AEOLIAN ISLANDS

Fun in Tuscany
This was an amazing tour. Walking in Tuscany, every day was different and so enjoyable. The value for money was fantastic even for South Africans with our bad exchange rate. The food and typical Tuscan experiences were so varied and always far better than expected; from wine tasting to cooking classes, to meeting Italian families and eating in their homes and small hotels, the whole experience was so much fun. A holiday I will never forget

Superb walking tour experience
This tour was extraordinary and exceeded all my expectations. The guides, Gianni Stanghellini and Sara, were kind, thoughtful, extremely well-organized, very knowledgeable about the region, and sensitive to members’ particular needs. The hotels were wonderful; the food delicious; and the activities/stops all interesting, welcoming and informative. All practical arrangements were virtually flawless. A lovely mixtures of guided time and activities and time to explore on our own. And an overall atmosphere of humor and good-fellowship. Mark K., Northampton (MA) USA
