Marco Scaglione is one of the co-founders of the Tour Operator Meet Piemonte where he covers the role of “Direttore tecnico” – Chief Operator Officer – and CEO of Meet Voyager SRL.
Marco believes traveling is one of the most powerful experiences one can achieve in life. The outcome is personal growth and the development of our mental boundaries.
With the ease of access to so many travel options, nowadays what makes the difference is the ability to plan a trip by focusing on quality, slow pace (less is more!), authenticity, and cultural exchanges with locals.
Former tour manager and tour guide, Marco has led tours in Italy, Iceland, and Switzerland since 2007 for some of the most prominent luxury and mass-market North-American travel companies. He worked with different targets of guests and oversaw contrasting ways of planning and leading similar itineraries.
His broad perspective and understanding of the Italian territory combined with his experience with some of the most discerning guests, play a key role in hand-crafting itineraries and laying the groundwork for the overall experience with Meet Piemonte.
Marco’s secret is to pretend to be a guest on the tour he’s planning, making sure the pace of the itinerary allows some quiet time to take in the vibe of the destination. He is also an advocate of local small food purveyors and organic farms where he likes to take his clients, exposing them to the most authentic traditions of Italy.
Best preferred Piedmontese recipe: vitello tonnato (boiled or slowly-roasted veal topped with tuna, eggs and capers sauce).
