Carlo M.

Siracusa, Sicily, Italy

I am one of the best English speaking nature/city guides in the East of Sicily and I worked as Sicily's location scout/translator for BBC nature documentaries.

I spend more time in nature than in any other place. I especially love to share the secret river pools and waterfalls, the coastline of my Sicilian childhood.
I also manage my beautiful riverside off-grid farm where I grow all the vegetables needed for my young family's survival.
I am an avid researcher of old Sicilian traditions.
Fun, knowledge and stunning locations are my main ingredients for an unforgettable experience.

A Recent Review of this guide

My 2 adult children, two grandchildren and I enjoyed a perfect day out with Carlo. His English is very good, and his knowledge of the culture and local natural environment is top-notch. Carlo was a pleasure to be with and very accommodating to our needs. We feel like we made a friend in Sicily. I would definitely give him a 5 out of 5 rating.
