Daniele Ciccone

Languages Spoken: English, Spanish, Italian

Daniele was born in Milan and grew up in Lake Como. Back in the mid-'90s, he started traveling non-stop until 2014 when he decided to go back home. In 2005 he left  Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a journey around the world on a motorbike that took him to travel all continents for nearly 10 years. This intense experience took him to explore different cultures learning new skills in different areas. He worked as a chef, professional photographer, and cinematographer, then switch into tourism business working as Tour Leader for several years. All these experiences change his life and perspective. After living in crowded places such as New York, London, Rio de Janeiro, once back he decided to settle down in a tiny village of 15, in the middle of the countryside of Umbria.

Laura Cimò

FOUNDER & TECHNICAL DIRECTOR + TOUR LEADER

Languages Spoken: English, Spanish, Italian

Hometown: Rome

 

Born and raised in the heart of Rome, she grew up as the youngest child of a large and diverse Italian family. Laura grew a natural curiosity towards other cultures since her very young age. She moved to London to study English at the age of 18 and obtained a University Degree in Tourism Management and Latin American studies. Inspired by her father who worked as a journalist in Latin America and the USA for many years, she traveled to South America for 3 years, working as a Tour leader guiding small group adventures through Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Colombia, and Cuba.

The roots were calling her back, so she took the opportunity to work in tourism traveling all over the country. Italy is unique for its history, culture, art and endless beauty… However, the aspect that Laura loves the most about her culture is Food & Wine diversity. Every little village of Italy hides some incredible recipes and unique products and is so much fun to learn about them.

Food for us is much more than just eating, through our cuisine we share Love for Life.

Greenways Italy started with the goal to show travelers the best aspects of the Italian Lifestyle. We love to enjoy a simple yet genuine lifestyle surrounded by great people and natural beauty.
