Chiara is very knowledgeable expert in the history of Sicilian, specifically, Taormina and Castelmola. However, all these critically important qualities for a professional tour guide won't sparkle unless Chiara possessed the wittiness and intelligence which were plentiful during our incredible and unforgettable 5 hours we spent together.
