Ciao e Benvenuti,
I am Umberto Cattani owner of CTTours, company that provides private tours in Tuscany and Liguria. I was born in Carrara (Tuscany) in 1965, high school degrees in accounting and in tourism management. My “first life” was spent as a sales agent until when 17 years ago I fell in love with tour guiding: my second life!
Since then I achieved the tour guide license for Cinque Terre, Carrara and Florence, the tour manager license and N.C.C. Italian professional driving license for the transporting of people with my vans.
I like traveling with my family, experience new foods and wines and get involved in the life of the locals. My favorite sports are soccer, tennis, and volley, nowadays mostly watched on TV than played!

Another kind of services like package tours, shared tours, ticket purchase, meals, wine tastings, cooking classes, art courses, Italy bike tours we rely on Viaggi & Dintorni travel agency.
