Jackie Alio (email@example.com) has worked as a professional guide for over a decade. Educated in Italy and in the United States (English is her mother tongue), she has undertaken scholarly research in England, and authored articles for Best of Sicily (on Thomas Becket and Margaret of Navarre, as well as others). Jackie has worked with, among other media, the Discovery Channel and The History Channel, and lectured university classes (from New York University, for example). She specializes in personalized tours in northwestern Sicily, where she also works with larger groups. In addition to her exceptional insights into the comparative Norman histories of Sicily and England, her knowledge of Palermo's Jewish history encompasses the kind of arcane (original) scholarly information you won't get from other guides or the internet. She specializes in personalized tours as well as tours for larger groups. Visit her Palermo tour site for more information about her services.
Francesca Lombardo (firstname.lastname@example.org), a native of Palermo, has worked in tourism for over twenty years, and has been a licenced guide for most of that time. At university she majored in foreign languages and literature, with a concentration in art history. As a professional educator, Francesca brings a special talent to her profession as a guide. She speaks German and French as well as English. Francesca is the kind of guide familiar with all kinds of fascinating details, and a "go to" expert for highly specialized tours like "winemaking and the English families of Marsala."
Siracusa, Ragusa, Taormina, Catania, Piazza Armerina
Rosa Rizza (email@example.com), who also works in the Taormina area, was raised and educated in Italy and in the United States. Over the last two decades, her vast experience as a guide and group leader has made the "Sicily experience" of thousands of visitors memorable and interesting but also extremely informative - and highly educational. In addition to her work as a guide, Rosa's experience includes organizing weddings and events in Sicily. The depth and breadth of Rosa's knowledge is remarkable, and as she explains the history of ancient Syracuse you sense that Plato and Archimedes were people she actually knew. It's almost as if they had come back to life and were speaking to you themselves.
Douglas Kenning (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a combination history professor and actor who lives half of each year in his beloved Siracusa and half in California, where he teaches university courses centering around the histories of Sicily and Italy, ancient and modern. Professor Kenning's theatrical and mythical approach to Sicily and her stories have made his tours and classes wildly popular.
Stephen Davies (email@example.com) is English by birth, Sicilian by marriage, with over thirty years experience living in Siracusa and showing people around the island. Fluent in Sicilian, funny, gregarious, with friends in every corner of Sicily, he is an expert on Sicilian culture, food, history, and craftsmanship, with a love for the adventure of undiscovered roadways.
Diana Mazza (firstname.lastname@example.org), who might be described as "Anglo-Italian," speaks German as well as English and Italian. Spanning two decades, her experience as a guide is extensive. She works across eastern Sicily, including the Catania and Siracusa areas.
