Overview
More
After many years of volunteer work in the field of protection of the environment I decided to turn my passion for nature and for Sicily also in work. I'd like people knew (and loved) my land. It's wonderful with its nature, history, cuisine, geology and the ancient origins. I love to get people to Etna, one of the most famous an beautiful volcanoes in the world, recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage. In Acicastello and Acitrezza I can show you the first examples of volcanic activity in our area. In Taormina and Syracuse the history of ancient Greece. I'm a freelance guide and I drive a 9 seats van, so I can make very cheap proposals for families and little groups. I've been joining the campaign of "Addiopizzo", the organisation established by citizens who refuse to pay the "pizzo", the Mafia extortion money.
