Giuseppe and Lorenzo

My father Giuseppe started his first adventure in this industry in 1996; after my studies I joined my family’s company and together we expanded it offering more detailed services, adding on regular basis, destinations and tours that we personally love.

In 2016 my father got retired and since then I manage Italy Discovery Tours with a team of professional experts, yet maintaining the same family and local values in order to provide high quality personalized services.
