Sicilian Experience

Carmelina

I am very happy to share my passion and knowledge of Sicily.  

Come with me and experience the natural beauty and authenticity of the places and people we meet along the trails.

  • " ... savouring a lifestyle that hasn't changed in centuries' - is very much a work in progress. "


    Arthur Frommer, 2011

  • " Carmelina offers a glimpse of a way of life that is fast disappearing. "


    The Observer, 2009

  • " Foreign guests are invited to visit and observe the daily preparation of bread and rolls at the local bakery, to meet with the town's shepherd, to witness the pressing of olives into olive oil… and in general - to integrate themselves into the life of the community. "


    Arthur Frommer, 2011

  • " One woman is working to keep Sicily's traditions and culture alive - by sharing them with tourists. "


    The Observer, 2009

Sustainable tourism

I’ve decided the best way to help the Sicily I love is to promote it to people who want to live life as a Sicilian local—to see the world through Sicilian eyes. This is the best way I know to contribute to the place I love, the home of my birth, the Sicily in me.
