About This Guide
Hello! I introduce myself: my name is Maria and I was born in 1968. I live in the countryside around Certaldo (Florence), in a small town - Betto - where my family has been present for 300 years. My two greatest passions since childhood include: the love of the countryside and the history of art (a great love story!). It is the passion for the art history that allowed me, in 1995, to obtain the degree in Art History at the University of Siena. The desire to transmit to others the beauty, value and importance of the enormous wealth in my area led me to become a Tour Guide. In 1998, I become a tour guide of Siena and this area; in 2004, in Florence and in 2007, in Pisa. My love for art has always been accompanied by a passion for the country where I was born and where I grew up. In 2009, I became responsible for the small family farm where olive - extraordinary plant! - coexists with the vine. What is my MISSION? The promotion of sustainable tourism that looks closer at "better Tuscany," namely the towns, castles, parishes and monasteries, far from the frenetic rhythms of overconsumption distorted by mass tourism. A Tuscan who lives in symbiosis with a unique agrarian landscape in the world: a landscape unchanged over the centuries thanks to the intelligence of builders and inhabitants of communities. And creators of "agricultural economy in harmony with the territory and able use each piece of land to promote art and culture."
