About
Pantalica is the oldest burial site in Europe, with over 500 tombs carved into the limestone rockfaces. It is situated in one the most beautiful and dramatic valleys in Sicily. A place filled with mystery and the timeless flourish of nature. Pantalica is a natural reserve, with its breathtaking beauty and historic importance recognised as a World Heritage Site under the Unesco scheme. We will take a tour of the most important archeological places, experiencing the lush nature in which primitive people thrived in possibly Europe's biggest settlement of the bronze age. We will walk down to refresh and swim in the clear water of the Calcinara River. Before booking please always drop me a message, so we can check weather forecast and make sure that you book the right excursion for the right day.

I am happy to report that this guide is the “real deal”. He is from this land and that is evident in his lifestyle and in his own history.
Carlo is well schooled for this job. He learned from his mother who has been a registered tour guide since Carlo was very young, additionally he has been taught by a grandfather who was involved in the tuna industry as well as farming. He was a wise man from all the tidbits Carlo adds to his teachings from his Nono.
Not only does Carlo know the history of the land but he knows his birds, the wild plants, the formations of the landscape and the rhythm and pulse of his country.
He is a modern man who lives off the grid being a good steward to the earth, using building techniques of the ancients.
I felt lucky to be on a trip with him and I enjoyed his easy flexible style and his openness to whatever topic I picked to discuss.

A real professional! I would recommend his tours to anyone.

Amazing wanderings in one of the most fantastic and under-visited national parks in Italy
Sep 2018 • Solo
Carlo may just be a one-of-a-kind among tour guides in the Hyblaean region of Eastern Sicily. If you have the means to afford a privately guided tour, and you're looking for an caring, jovial, hip, free-spirited, gregarious and worldly companion, with Carlo you're in the best hands. What to say about the beauty of the Hyblean mountains? This landscape, which Carlo knows like the back of his hand right down to the minutest natural or architectural feature, is made up of simply one of the most breathtaking highland ranges anywhere in Europe, where exquisite Baroque villages unexpectedly reveal themselves after each turn, stunningly snuggling up the sides of canyons and ravines. The harmony between natural setting and cityscapes seems improbable, but perfect. And then there are the Pantalica rock tombs and homes themselves, which are like the most surreal step back in time. Carlo knows all the most characterful and outstanding ones, and stepping into a 4.000-year-old cave with 500-year old religious frescoes superimposed upon even earlier, 1.300-year-old paintings, is almost dizzying in terms of the sudden tangibility and simultaneity of all that storied history. There are also some of the most gorgeously embedded natural swimming pools one could imagine. And for all that, we almost had the whole natural park to ourselves - truly, the Hyblean mountains are the most sensational natural paradise off the tourist radar anywhere in Southern Europe. It really was a magical, unforgettable experience.
