When I’ve decided to move back to Palermo after 12 years living in London, where I’ve gained a degree in Media Communication & Marketing and 7 years working as a TV Director for the BBC, I knew it was going to be ‘different’. However, it was also clear from the very beginning that working as a Personal Guide in Palermo was going to be incredibly interesting and satisfying. Every day I love to walk right through its soul, its overwhelming Historic City Center that attracts and seduces me each time, fulfilling my expectations with great pleasure when allows me to discover its intimacy. The beauty of my profession is that I work in the most beautiful, interesting and intriguing buildings of the world, and I’ll be pleased to share it all with you. I’ve decided run my own Personal Guide Sicily business becauseI've also realized that Sicily and especially Palermo is not yet ready for mass tourism, therefore quite difficult to move around and to appreciate, even for some locals. Consequently, it’s considered to be the last place in Europe left unspoiled.
Whether you are a single traveler, a couple, a small group or a family with kids and have just a day or more to visit this incredible city and its Island, I will be please to give you choices, allowing you to unpack the complexity of this city and to see things from many different prospective.My itineraries and experiences capture the essence of our destinations.
