Massimiliano, or Max for short, is a certified tour guide and has been leading Travel Department tour groups in Tuscany since 2006. Prior to this, he has also worked as a guide in France, Greece, England and Spain. Max loves introducing Travel Department customers to the beautiful city of Lucca, and Cinque Terre (the ‘Five lands’) in particular. Max loves being a tour guide because he is constantly meeting new people. Sometimes he even gets to indulge his first love - singing and acting - in front of our groups! Max is originally from Puglia in the south of Italy. He has lived in some of the biggest and best cities in the world; Los Angeles, New York & Paris to name but a few - but Portugal is his favourite holiday destination, because of the weather, the rich history and the great surfing.
