Owner description: Discover with me the historical centre of Taormina. We will take a walk and I will tell you anything about the main monuments of this lovely spot but also about Sicily and its long history and the customs of its inhabitants. I will also let you know everything about the Mount Etna, the view of which made Taormina so popular. Just come and I will be glad to show you other sites, provide new historical, social cultural perspective, and if you wish, highlight local food and wine as well.

“Tour of Taormina”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Our guide was Chiara Rozzi. Taormina was the most beautiful stop on our trip down the Amalfi Coast and on to Sicily. Chiara made the city tour very interesting. She gave us vivid history/cultural lessons on the Greek to Roman rule of the city. She was very knowledgeable about her subject matter and very personal and pleasant to be with. Without a good guide, the ruins are just a pile of rocks. The ancient Greek Theatre came alive with her descriptions. She also recommended some great restaurants: La Griglia on Corso Umberto.

She made our visit to Taormina very much more meaningful than it would have been.

“An Excellent Honeymoon planned by Chiara Rozzi!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I will be forever thankful for Chiara's effort in arranging our honeymoon in Taormina, Sicily. She has an excellent network, amazing knowledge and experience in guiding newcomers like us to Sicily. Even though we have visited Italy before, I have never experienced anything so nice.
Without her perfect dedication for customer satisfaction, we would have been many times in troubles and we would have also missed the essentials of the Sicilian culture, heritage and the memorable stories that made the amazing history alive.
Her style is lively, funny yet very professional and the excellent language skills made it very easy to learn in a short time a lot more than we expected. She adjusts quickly to the needs and wishes, so we had more the feeling of visiting a close family member instead of playing only average tourists.
We had a perfect trip and honeymoon and will definately return.
I will gladly recommend Chiara's services and guidance for anybody wanting to experience the true Sisilian life.

“CHIARA ROZZI - YOU ARE A FANTASTIC GUIDE!!!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

What more can I say about Chiara... she is a wonderful travel guide. My family of 7 had the opportunity to spend the day in Sicily with Chiara and from the moment we met, we felt like we had known her for years. When we stepped off our cruise ship in Messina, we knew it was going to be a fantastic day. Chiara was there to meet us and she was so professional, knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and had a charming personality. We toured Mt. Etna and Taorima as well as other surrounding areas and had an amazing time. Our time spent in Sicily was so exciting and we owe it all to Chiara. If we ever return to Sicily, Chiara will be the first call we make. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful cities and towns in Sicily with my family and for everything you did to make our tour a day we will always remember!!!!

“Perfect Score”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Chiara helped my wife and I plan one of the most memorable vacations in many years.
Being in our early sixties, we have traveled extensively throughout Europe both as part of large tour group and individually on own own. If an expert experience is what you are looking for, I would have no reservations in reccomending Chiara as a personal or group guide. She even helped us make cooking class reservations.
Her personality, knowledge of the region history and acommodating nature were the perfect ingredients to insure that things exceeded our expectations.
By the way she likes Granita!
