Alessandro Speciale

My tourist training, together with my experiences in catering and hotel chains, combined with my passion for cycling, traveling, discovering beauty in bloom or in an animal or in a work of art, has led me to be a producer of travels. I enjoy especially experiential trips where I can enhance a place and the people who live it, making the traveler feel like an acquaintance who will learn to love everything in that environment. This is because we focus on people or human relationships throughout our trips.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Born in Tuscany, lived in Romagna and filmed along Italy, Malta, Lapland, Slovenia, Azores, Macedonia, Croatia and Spain. I feel ready for everything because I love what I do and even if I am 45 years old with a family, I step 3 months and a half around discovering new places and anecdotes to tell to those who believe in my way of living the journey"

How did you get involved in travel?

"My role in travel is to provide assistance and where it is possible to welcome and spend a few moments together without being too invasive. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In my life I had two 2 journeys that I will never forget:
A trip to Lapland in search of the aurora borealis, but above all live, play and face the snow-covered tundra expanses and the silence that surrounds you that makes you feel really connected with nature and face one's limits. To discover the simplicity of life of these populations that still live in tents was amazing.

The second is what all the children dream of, namely the holiday with the father, a 40-days holiday in Australia, wandering through coral reefs, woods, ziplines, looking at breathtaking views and knowing the traditions, the uses but also the integration problems between aborigines and colonizers and why not caress koalas, kangaroos, the Tasmanian devil etc.

As you can see, my experiences always look for the environment and people, because when you travel you have to grow inside!"
