AGTU, a 40-year history

Our AGTU, the Association of Tourist Guides of Umbria, was founded in 1982 at the same time as the first law on the profession of Tourist Guide. The AGTU was one of the first associations in Italy to be set up to protect the profession and promote its activities. Our 50 AGTU Tourist Guides are all qualified by the Region of Umbria and reside there; in fact, they uphold the importance of the local Guide specialising in the territory to which he or she belongs. This is why AGTU is the main point of reference for guided tours in Umbria: from the most popular destinations to the lesser known ones, our Tourist Guides recount the wonders of Umbria with dedication, passion and professionalism.
