We

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.
