Kulturtrek grew out of the idea that it is time to get back to enjoying moving slowly, on foot, with the curiosity to learn about the things that we encounter along the way.
We began in Brescia because it is our home. But not only that – Brescia is also a city at the foot of the mountains and the edge of the plain. From there we can travel on new paths, towards new places and new knowledge.
We want to rediscover the city on foot. Beyond the city, we want to explore at leisure, either on foot or using other, relatively slow, means of transport such as bicycles or trains.
We are walkers, curious, outdoorsy, lovers of culture and seekers of treasure. Our country, Italy, is rich in treasures that we often ignore because of the pace of modern life (and perhaps also our own laziness). We want to find – and to help you find – the beauties in this world that we all need to nourish our minds and souls.
As the young English Romantic poet John Keats wrote:
“…a thing of beauty is a joy forever”
I love the land and the mountains, history and people. I like to share my passions, my knowledge, and those things that I have learned along the way.
As a great walker wrote “life itself is a journey to be walked on foot” (Bruce Chatwin).

I have come to love Italy – the main focus of my archaeological research – and am always delighted to share my passion for, and knowledge of, the country with others.
One learns so much more by taking one’s time and really taking in one’s surroundings rather than rushing through them on the way to the next “must-see sight”.

Life is a voyage and the palaeontologist reconstructs the life-voyages of many living things, often finding himself far from home.
