Who we are and what we do
Localtenders is an independent group of enthusiastic walking leaders and professional hiking guides who provide an innovative and exciting way to travel and sightsee through central Italy which in contrast to mainstream tourism offers authenticity and a taste of the real Italian culture. Whether it be walking you through beautiful and historic town centres or taking you trekking across the spectacular hillsides and landscapes indicative of central Italy, we avoid the standard tourist cliche’ and instead, show and welcome you into personal local lifestyles.
We will go wherever our feet take us, sharing with you all the best and most genuine points of interest: City walks, traditional meals, art and craft workshops, typical local products as well as fabulous walking trails and hikes that will leave you spellbound. While ‘on the move’ we also offer Italian conversation lessons. It is a great way of immersing yourself in the true nature of the places you visit and a fun way of getting started or improving your Italian.
In order to provide you with a memorable and genuine experience, we offer the possibility of ‘walking and talking’ in Italian – a fun way to start learning or improving your Italian and a great way to immerse yourself in the true nature of the places you visit.
We are not compelled to strictly follow
our pre-planned itineraries!
You may suggest your preferred route,
and we can design the best itinerary together.
I live in the countryside just outside of Perugia with my husband and two kids. I work for a contemporary dance company based in Cortona. The most beautiful thing about living in Perugia is the close proximity between urban culture and breath-taking nature. I enjoy the thrill that visitors experience while introducing them to my favorite walking paths and trails.
I’m originally from Caprarola but I have been living in Rome working in the communications field for several years now. I’m adventurous and love new experiences, living them to the fullest while maintaining a keen eye for cultural details and nuances. I hope to be able to transmit these aspects with whoever decides to venture on a splendid itinerary with me!
