Born in Bologna and raised in Arezzo, Tuscany, Marco is a passionate traveler and has guided fellow travelers on five continents over the past 11 years. After he graduated in Perugia in 2004, he started working in the events industry in roles such as international press officer and logistics manager. He lived and worked in Spain for four years, follow by stays in London, Venice, and Milan while taking part in different projects.

He’s now returned back to his roots in Arezzo, where he rides up and down the Tuscan hills, produces his own Vin Santo, and owns a bike-and-wine bar in the old town.
