all know that having an excellent guide can make all the difference to your holiday. So if you are heading off to Sicily, we would definitely recommend getting in touch with Lucia Lacono, who specialises as a guide in the south-east of the island.
Born on St. Lucia’s day in Siracusa, Lucia has lived and worked in the area all her life. A guide for over 20 years, she also works as an interpreter and English teacher. Lucia’s
love and enthusiasm, even after 20 years of guiding, for her country is unmistakable as she shares her extensive knowledge with you.
In fact her website is called ‘Eva in Sicily’ after Eve’s Story by Mark Twain. Lucia likens herself to Eve, who was looking at the world for the first time.
She says “Guiding people I can look at my places through their eyes, as for the first time, still with enthusiasm”. Lucia
customises her tours to match your interests: whether it be Inspector Montalbano (the Italian detective series on Channel 4), ancient cultures, gourmet appetites, World War II or even tracing your roots, she will be delighted to show you around her beloved area of Sicily.
She also knows the best places to eat, be it lunch in Siracusa or the best cannoli in Ragusa.
