My name is Fausto and I am an authorized tour guide of the Sicily Region. I live in Syracuse, one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, where history, natural beauty and unique monuments in the world are intertwined. There is nothing more beautiful for me than to tell its thousand-year history to visitors, revealing its secrets and its beauty.
