What makes our day special are the secret unknown alleys around the hamlets which only a local knows! We hike through the 5 Terre where we see the main attractions & then take less-explored paths where vegetable gardens, vineyards & genuine atmosphere come to life away from crowded souvenir shop areas. I will take you around at least 3 of the 5 hamlets all depending on the time you have! The day in Paradise starts off in La Spezia where we will take the train & head into the heart of the National Park. We will take a wild nature path between at least 2 of the hamlets & explore the hidden areas around each one where I will tell you about historical, cultural and environmental aspects of life here, give you recipes & answer any questions you may have! A break for lunch is mandatory & that will depend on you; either a quick to go stop in a local "real" pizza or focaccia deli to then munch away on a bench with sea view or a complete gastronomic experience in a genuine fresh seafood restaurant. Our experience ends in Monterosso where you may take the ferry back to La Spezia enriching your experience by giving you the chance to see the towns from a different point of view!
Ciao! I am a licensed Environmental Interpretive Guide and live on the border between Tuscany and Liguria. I am Italian but grew up in Pennsylvania. I love exploring and working is so fun for it gives me the never-ending possibility of learning new aspects about life in general! I believe that we never stop learning and am so enthusiastic about sharing my experience with visitors. I enjoy spending my time in the magical outdoors and offer visitors the possibility of getting out of the crowded touristy areas and see our wonders from a more genuine and off the beaten track point of view
Back alleys, a chat with a local wine producer, with one of the last dry wall artisans, a local fisherman and/or farmer; your experience will be tailored around your desires which I am extremely eager to fulfill! I do my best to avoid the crowds & to leave you with a down-home taste of the 5 Terre. Each hamlet will be seen from a less glossy touristic brochure prospective; through my eyes, those of a person who lives and loves the area!

Because of the morphology of the 5 Terre, a bit of physical preparation is necessary. Some parts of nature paths are uphill, but the challenge is worth it & no one is rushing us!
