All guides in Italy need a professional licence by the Tuscany Regional Low n°42 of 2000 and subsequent amendments. The award of the Regional Guides License demands the highest standards of skill and professionalism in all aspects of guiding. That's why it's so important to be professionally licensed. 


I got my licence as a Nature Walking Guide (GAE - Guida Ambientale Escursionistica in Italian) in 2003. 

I'm associated to the AIGAE (card n° TO431), the professional association for those leading in nature both in Italy and around the world. 


In 2009 I got my licence as a Tour Guide for Siena's Province. 

I'm associated to the Italian Association of Tour Guides (AGT - Associazione Guide Turistiche). 


All my colleagues have a regular license.
