But now hurry up, collect supplies and the few belongings, Debora is waiting for you to guide you towards salvation through ancient paths!
Debora, Experiential Tourism Operator
Hi, I’m Debora, an environmental guide specialized in botany and geology. We will trek in the Park of Portofino, among the scents of the Mediterranean scrub and ocean rocks with fossils dating back 90 million years ago. I will help you to recognize the wild herbs that we will then use in the kitchen of an ancient mill.
