Owner description: Discover with me the historical centre of Taormina. We will take a walk and I will tell you anything about the main monuments of this lovely spot but also about Sicily and its long history and the customs of its inhabitants. I will also let you know everything about the Mount Etna, the view of which made Taormina so popular. Just come and I will be glad to show you other sites, provide new historical, social cultural perspective, and if you wish, highlight local food and wine as well.

“Outstanding guide in Taormina, Mt. Etna and Siracusa!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

I recently had Chiara Rozzi as a guide for a multi-day visit to the eastern part of Sicily, and I cannot say enough positive things about her! Her knowledge of the history, archaeology, flora/fauna and even geology of the area was impressive. What's more, she was able to tie in the past with the present in such a way that brought Sicily to life for me!

Unlike some other guides, who can deliver information in a rote manner, Chiara's delivery was both thoughtful and lively! I would not hesitate to recommend Chiara as a guide in Taormina, Mt. Etna, Siracusa and Origia!

thank you, Chiara, for a wonderful couple of days!

“Tours by Locals; Taormina & Mt. Etna with Chiar Rozzi”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Our group of 15 had the most wonderful day with Chiara on a full day tour of Taormina and Mt. Etna. She met us at the port as we disembarked from our cruise ship and we departed on a very comfortable bus to Mt. Etna. She was able to pass the time on the drive with knowledgeable information on the history and culture of the area without being boring. We were lucky to have a sun shiny morning on Mt. Etna, and beautiful views along the way. The rest of our day was spent at the Greek-Roman theatre in the historical center of Taormina, overlooking the Naxos Bay, We had plenty of time for lunch, leisurely shopping and taking pictures. I would definitely recommend Chiara as a tour guide.

“A very knowledgeable lady!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

My sister and I have just returned from a week in Sicily. Whilst in Taormina we were taken on a walking tour under the direction of Chiara Rozzi. Our tour lasted two hours and it was quite the best one we had ever taken. Chiara was not only charming but knew so much history on this country. This made our time with her full of interest and entertainment. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely lady to anyone who wishes to visit this beautiful city and learn more of its history. We were spellbound!

“Tours by Locals Tour of Taormina with Chiara Rozzi”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We had an excellent half day tour of Taormina with Chiara Rozzi. She met our group of 7 at the dock in Naxos with a very comfortable mini-bus. On the drive up to Taormina we stopped at some beautiful scenic overlooks. Once in Taormina, we walked up to the ancient Greek Theater (amphitheater) where we had some beautiful views of Taormina and Mt. Etna. Afterwards, we were given time to walk the main street and shop and take photos.
