Mauro A.

Palermo, PA, Italy

I'm a creative soul, 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. Not only in the monuments, but also in people, the colours 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

Mauro has to be about the best tour guide I ever had. His passion and knowledge of Palermo was immense. On top of that he understood the needs of our group without us having to tell him. We were a group of 11, 7 were children ages 8-18. All the kids loved him, his excitement is very contagious. I highly recommend him for any size group and all ages!!
