Mauro A.

Palermo, PA, Italy

Hello everyone and welcome in Palermo! My name is Mauro, I am really full of energy and passion.

I love theatre, arts and the beauty. While visiting a place, I like to discover what is beautiful, and I believe that the beauty is something you can find in many ways. In the monuments, but also in people, the colors of a city, the atmosphere.

I was born in Palermo and I deeply love this city that offers an incredible richness and variety in arts, history, authentic people, tasty food and unforgettable corners.
Palermo and its surrounding area have a unique atmosphere and that's what I want to share with you.
I always focus on giving and telling something interesting, never being boring. I want you to enjoy the time you spend with me!
I spent several periods in Germany, Spain and USA, attending language courses so I fluently speak those languages.

Sicily is a place you will never forget. What is interesting here, is that the atmosphere changes in every corner of the island.
You will find traces of the most important civilization of the Mediterranean Sea: Phoenicians, Greek, Roman, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Spanish! And all this is going to be in front of your eyes, you will be able to touch it!

A Recent Review of this guide

Our family of 5 (+one dog!) absolutely LOVED our tour with Mauro. We have experienced multiple tour guides in the past, but none were as knowledgeable, entertaining, enthusiastic, and friendly as Mauro. He had the answer to every question, ranging from very up-to-date information and stories of his childhood in this ever changing city. You will never feel bored! If you would like a superb local experience of this beautiful city AND to make a wonderful new friend, you should definitely choose him!
