We shape your experience


and let us guide you

Vademecum Tours is a way of experiencing Tuscany that stands out from the frantic realities of mass tourism, offering you a relaxing journey with a slow discovery of the region through time and history. The idea was born in 2017 by Alessandro Maggiorelli and his deep passion for nature, history and outdoor living visiting places, knowing people and discovering hidden beauties. Our main objective is to enhance the territory by guiding you to discover the wonders of Tuscany, through an hiking tour or bike tour, or through an educational activity, where children learn to know and respect nature while having fun. The intent is to let you experience the Tuscan landscape by letting you get in touch with all the extraordinary things that exist here, from the wildest nature to the historical country parishes, from the local fauna and flora to traditional customs and traditions.
