After my graduation, I moved to the United States where I attended a course in Interior Design at the New York School of Visual Arts. After many years in Boston and New York where I worked for several architectural firms, I have returned to Sicily, my native land, and now lead cultural tours in Palermo and beyond. My walks are infused with my interests in architecture and the history of arts.
I am a licensed guide leading private tours for small groups willing to really understand the places they visit. I am very passionate about my island, I share my knowledge with travellers by arranging cultural tours with an emphasis on history, art, archaeology, architecture, gastronomy, nature, or a blend of the above.
I have helped hundreds of travellers discover and understand the masterpieces left by nature and the different civilizations that have made Sicily their home during the last three millennia.
My aim isn't to merely 'inform' travellers about social and historical facts, my tours are interactive and stimulating physically and mentally. I plan them with great care and adjust them continuously.
These are few itinerary ideas. Every tour with me is fully customized, personalized to your interests.

A Recent Review of this guide
Cetty was a wonderful guide and we enjoyed her company. Monreale is a very special place and it was enhanced through her knowledge of this historic church. Cetty also honored my request to provide a driver and stop at the Cappuccin catacombs on the way back to the hotel. She provided us with a great driver and accompanied us to the catacombs Again providing us with the historical significance of the site. Cetty is a wonderful guide and I would recommend her and this tour to anyone.
