Chiara was a great guide for the short time we spent in Siracusa. She is very knowledgeable of the area and was full of suggestions. Anyone looking for a professional guide in this area will certainly benefit with a connection with Chiara.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) I'm glad the weather held up for us, more or less... Come to Sicily again and I will show you much more...! Best regards Chiara
Scott RomanUnited States
Was extremely informative, not rushed and well worth attending. Chiara was a pleasure because she had a lovely personality with a sense of humor! She was so knowledgeable on her subject matter it made all the difference. Would recommend to anyone going to Sicily to participate in this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott, when I give a tour I wish my clients enjoy the explanation at the moment without being worried if they can store all the information... I told you there is no test at the end...! ;) but as long as I notice you are interested in my stories I keep on telling... But thank you for pointing out that I should always be careful and not overwhelm tourists who don't love to be told too much... Sorry if I exaggerated...

We toured with Chiara in Siracusa on October 6, 2019 and again in Taormina on October 9. Chiara is very informative, personable and witty, and she has a great sense of humor. For both tours, she took us to off-the-beaten-path sites and provided an excellent historical perspective of the site's significance to Sicilian culture. We highly recommend her.

Brian HallUnited States
My husband and I toured the Syracuse ruins and the churches of Ortigia with Chiara and we learned more in the couple of hours we spent together than we have in all our years of school! She brought the ancient city to life, helping us to understand all the different rulers and cultures that makes Sicily what it is today. Even a rain storm didn't stop Chiara from showing us the history and charm of the island of Ortigia. She was easy to communicate with on meet up and parking and additional sites to see.
Richard MountsUnited States
The four of us in our family shared a delightful -- and very informative -- morning with Chiara. In the ancient Greek quarries, at the Ear of Dionysus, along with the history, she sang a bit to display the echo. At the theater, she described the nature of Greek plays and functions of different areas in the space. On the island of Ortigia, she took us to ancient catacombs and a Jewish mikvah in use until the end of the 15th century. We ended our time together at the remarkable Cathedral. A great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing your appreciation, also considering the terrible storm we had to experience in the morning, so that we had to delay the start time... And I hope in the afternoon you could shelter from the second terrible one...! What a weird weather in May this year in Sicily...! Chiara
Richard BilottiUnited States
Chiara is one of the best guides I have had take me on a tour. She is knowledgeable about the archeological sites of Siracusa but knows Ortigia as well. She is knowledgeable about current Italian situations as well. She puts everything in context form BC to the present. Chiara is personable, friendly and fun to be with. We spent more than three hours with Chiara and it went by so quickly. If you can get her for your tour do it. She is spectacular. Thank you Chiara.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your enthusiastic compliments have left me literally speechless, which is all to say for a talkative guide like me...! :)) Thank you so much for posting your appreciation.

Chiara was fantastic. We arrived to an absolute down pour and expected the tour to be cancelled.But she drove us around and explained the history of the city. We then went to all the sites we thought we would miss out on . Ten out of ten Chiara.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Actually it is rare to have in Sicily such a horrible weather but fortune favors the brave... ;) Glad you could enjoy the tour anyway. After this from tomorrow on you deserved sunny weather, indeed...! Chiara

Chiara was fabulous!!! Her knowledge of Siracusa was amazing and she obviously loved sharing the information with us. Her enthusiasm was contagious and we really hated to see the day end.
