It is always great to hear about young Italians starting a business. It can be very difficult to get a new enterprise up and running in Italy.
I was delighted to meet Federica, who, along with her husband, has set up an adventure tour business in Lucca called Amazing Lucca.
As I walked with Federica she told me of their love and passion for the area and their desire to introduce people to a side of Italy they might not otherwise enjoy. With a minimum of 2 people and no more than 12, they will guide you through Renaissance villas, medieval churches, stunning countryside, vineyards and glorious mountains.
On foot, or on a mountain bike you can discover secret places off the beaten track with people who know the area. Meet locals and taste the produce of this incredible land. Trudge or ride up rugged mountains and find hidden streams, enjoy enchanted forests and breathtaking landscapes. Federica and Alessandro will guide to to spectacular places.
Alessandro is the mountain bike guide and Federica is the nature and walking guide. Even if you live in the area this would be fun, but what a great way to introduce your visiting friends to the area.
The tours are graded from easy to demanding, meaning there is something to suit everyone.
Take a look at their excellent website. It is in Italian and English.
Via Del Campaccio, Lucca.

I am hoping to try one of the tours soon.
I look forward to hearing about it!
It is great to see such enthusiastic people doing something they love.
Cheers to their love and passion for a wonderful area.
I hope they have great success with their business.
I hope they do well. Their website is impressive.
Hi Debra from New Farm. We met over coffee at NF Deli. I’ve booked for 2 weeks at Lucca Language School from April 9 to 20 but would like to get to Ponte Di Seraglio weekend of April14/15.
Can’t find info re Fri/Sat/Sun buses. Can you give me a website? Also the Rosalena you recommended for accommodation is too steep for me to manage. Any other place near in the village? Cheers, Jill
You will love Lucca. It will email you about accommodation in Ponte.
Hello Deb. I’ve got 14 people coming in May. The tours are in English too I would think? Hope you’re well.
Hi Pete, I am meeting with them today. Federica speaks excellent English and I think Alessandro does too.
