About the tour

We all know Italy can amaze us at every corner but how many of these "corners" haven't you seen yet? The Marche region and Ascoli Piceno could be some of those! A city mostly made of travertine with an amazing square, Piazza del Popolo, named one of the most beautiful squares in Italy and with the nickname "Salotto d'Italia" (Italian living room). A lovely walk through the city and a taste of uncommon Italian street food. Will you come here on your next visit to Italy?

Meet your local guide


Born in 1981 in Rome, Matteo has been a Tour Leader all over Europe for US groups of students and adults since 2003. He moved to Ascoli Piceno (where his father's family is from) in 2020 due to the pandemic and since then he decided to dedicate his "forced" time off to promoting Ascoli Piceno and its whole region, Marche.

Matteo has been guiding since Oct 2003

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Marche with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Marche. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Another wonderful trip with Matteo, we even had the added bonus of a red tower!! It feels as if Matteo is talking just to you, during the tour, even when answering all the questions on the ‘chat’ button.
