Flavio Lazzaretto

Flavio was born near Venice in Italy and grow up in Europe. He lived for a year in Barcelona where he finished his Engineering studies and learned Spanish. After some years working and studying he realized office jobs were not for him and traveling since then has been the priority in his life.


He always had the desire to guide foreigners through his beautiful region and close by countries, and has been doing it for some years volunteering in an association for international exchange students. Since then he started working as a golf travel manager, organizing exciting trips for golfers abroad, and finally joined the Back-Roads family. Working as a tour leader gives him the chance to travel, meet other travelers and to feel like a citizen of the world, by helping fellow travelers to experience the best places in Europe.


His passion is motorbikes and has been exploring amazing places in Italy and in other European countries with his Suzuki Bandit 600. He also had the chance to discover Russia by traveling for 3 weeks on the Transiberian train, and recently has been exploring South East Asia backpacking for 3 months in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. He is a sporty person, who loves nature and animals and of course as a real Italian he loves cooking and indulging in good food and wines.
