I was born and I live in Sicily, an island lying outside time. Its strategic location at the centre of the Mediterranean has made it a crossroads of history. It is a fascinating place, quite unlike any other. Here you can really find whatever you want. Famous people like poets, artists, writers, philosophers, fell in love with Sicily when they visited it for the first time.
Goethe said “To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.” Also Jean Houel, a French painter, said “I was enchanted…the limpidity of the sky, the restless splendor of the sun, the beauty of the countryside, a certain excitement of the fantasy…which brought to mind the time when in the fields one encountered the divine.”
Sicily is pure magic and I will get to know it like a local. I will help you plan your itinerary giving you the best advice to enjoy hidden gems and incredible places, to taste sublime food, and more! Visit my Sicily blog to fell in love with my island.
