TOUR GUIDES IN SICILY
The tour guides listed here are all licensed, meaning they have earned university
degrees in relevant fields, are fluent in English, and have passed a rigid qualifying exam to become legal guides. Don't confuse
these professionals with "guides" who work for very
low rates or even for free. Only licensed guides are permitted by law to lecture you or your group at public historical or
archeological sites (the unauthorized "guides" risk being fined by police). See our detailed desktop page for more
information. Other personalized services, such as itinerary planning, are available from Sicily Concierge.
Palermo, Monreale, Cefalù, Segesta, Erice
Francesca Lombardo (email@example.com), 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." A certified sommelier, she wrote a book on Sicilian wine and cuisine. For more information, visit her site.
Jackie Alio (firstname.lastname@example.org) has worked in this field for over a decade. A leading historian, she has authored several books on Sicilian history and written articles for this site. Jackie has worked with, among other media, The Discovery Channel, and lectured university classes. In addition to her exceptional insights into the histories of the Fatimids and Normans in Sicily, her knowledge of Palermo's Jewish history reflects the kind of arcane scholarly (original) research that fosters an exceptional expertise. Jackie specializes in personalized tours as well as tours for larger groups. Visit her Palermo tour site for more information.
Siracusa, Ragusa, Noto
Liliana Rainieri (email@example.com), in addition to being a guide, was trained as a school teacher, something that brings a very special skill to her work. A tour with Liliana is truly a learning experience. The depth and breadth of Liliana'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.
Tour Guides in Malta (Malta on Best of Sicily)
Joan Sheridan (firstname.lastname@example.org) has many years of experience as a licenced guide on the Maltese islands which, like Sicily, boast a multicultural heritage necessitating a guide's highly-refined knowledge of peoples, cultures and faiths.
