Hunting in Italy

Hello to the forum community! My name is Alessandro and I’m a passionate Italian hunter. I live in the Italian central region of Tuscany, in the countryside surrounding Florence, the city famous for it’s art and beauty and good living.
Hunting is my favourite sport. I usually hunt in the Chianti Hills surrounding the cities of Florence and Siena. In our outdoors you can hunt many Wild Boar, Muflones, Roe deer, Fallow deer, European Deer. These are our “Big Game”. In Tuscany you may also hunt Pheasant, Grouse, Partridge.
My wife Lisa (who is half American) and I live in an ancient country house, 10 minutes from Florence and we are both architects.
Recently one evening, after spending the day hunting wild boar with my friends, and while sipping a glass of good Chianti wine in front of the fireplace, my wife and I started talking about the fact that I have been hunting for a long time and acquired great experience. As I said I’m a very passionate hunter and I’ve gotten to know many secrets about hunting in the Tuscan outdoors. As a Tuscan Architect and good cook (and eater) I also know which are the right places to visit, the treasures that our beautiful country offers not to all but only to those who know what’s worth really seeing. Many times we have guided our friends and relatives from the States in visiting the secret treasures of Tuscany, both in art, food, wine drinking or shopping. They always have been grateful to us for letting them in to a world often unknown to the ordinary tourist.

Greetings from Florence.

Alessandro
