Emilia S.

Noto, Sicily, Italy

HI, I am Emilia. I'm a licensed tour guide in Sicily.

I began building up my experience in this field 8 years ago.
It all started when I realized that I really love the place where I live, and showing it to visitors gives me a lot of joy and a sense of accomplishment. That's why it became my full time job.
I have always been interested in history , ancient civilizations and all aspects of past cultures. One of my favorite subjects at school was Latin. Then I graduated in Italian philology and literature because it forms a part of my interest as well, since our language and culture have origins in the Greek and Roman worlds.
In Sicily we cannot avoid talking about Greek and Roman footprints. You can still feel the presence of ancient rulers here…
What makes Sicily unique is the wide variety of places to see and things to do. You can have an unforgettable experience visiting a baroque church or …pastry shop! Local food is another reason why I feel so much attached to my land ;)

A Recent Review of this guide

Only had one day to see Syracusa so decided on a guided tour and we are SO glad we did! Emilia took us to all the major sites and gave us such an in-depth understanding. We would never have appreciated the city and history the way we do now. Fantastic tour and wonderful day. Highly recommend!
