Carlo M.

Siracusa, Sicily, Italy

I am a Licensed English speaking Tour Guide in the East of Sicily, I have both licenses for Historical tours and nature tours bringing both world toghether.

I also worked as Sicily's location scout/translator for BBC/Netflix nature documentaries.
I was born and raised in Siracusa, from my Father an History teacher and my mother Historical tour Guide.
History it's in my blood. In my 20s I decide to dedicate my study to Nature&Geology and in my 30s I study history, giving both guide Licenses. I feel I am one of the most complete guide You can find in Sicily.
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, History, knowledge and stunning locations are my main ingredients for an unforgettable experience.

A Recent Review of this guide

Carlo was a wonderful tour guide who graciously accommodated our last minute request for a shorter tour to meet our travel restrictions! He is very knowledgeable about Sicilian and world history. His descriptions make the complex and rich history of this area very accessible to everyone. His English is superb, which was a real bonus for our group of 6 Americans. I would recommend Carlo for anyone searching for a warm guide with a deep reservoir of knowledge and experience!
