Fall in love
with my Tuscany
be Tuscan for a day !
Franco is a native Tuscan, born and raised in Siena, and he knows the Tuscan countryside better than anyone.
Before starting Franco Tours, Franco was a farmer, working the very land so many come to see.
For Franco, guiding visitors through Tuscany is like showing off his home .
He was brought up visiting and driving to the villages and fortresses vacationers now flock to. He was raised hearing the stories of the people, towns, and history of Tuscany.
Franco grew up sampling the best food and wine his home has to offer.
As a native, he knows the places to go, especially the lesser known, even unknown, spots you’d never find on a map or in a travel brochure.
Franco will even help you before you leave home – if you’re not sure where to stay, Franco is happy to give you suggestions for some of the best accommodations in Siena!
Franco also collaborates with Dario Castagno, author of best-selling travel book, “Too Much Tuscan Sun”.
Together, Franco and Dario have guided, educated and toured visitors through and introduced them to the historic and panoramic Tuscan wine country.
As a collector of Brunello di Montalcino for over fifteen years, Franco’s knowledge of Tuscan wine is outstanding.
And so is his knowledge of Tuscan wineries. His motto is “the very best wine is the wine you like” so, whether you’re a beginner on your first wine tasting, or an advanced connoisseur, with Franco as your guide, you’re sure to have a fun, memorable and educational experience.
Franco will personally guide you to the best his country has to offer – the most picturesque villages, the most beautiful landscapes, the most ancient castles, the most amazing restaurants and, of course, the best wineries in all of Tuscany!
