I was born in Sicily, Catania. I have always been fascinated to discover new places, colors, flavors. Travel helps to open my mind, staying away from home gives you the opportunity to reflect on your life, so It is the best way to discover more about yourself. Travel also offered me a great opportunity to make new friends, and I could visit them or journey with them.
I always find a good reason to take a trip. It could be a birthday, wedding, graduation etc. Every opportunity is good to take advantage of it and leave, so I will have memories that I can share with my dearest people.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Sicily, Piedmont, Veneto, Tuscany, Lombardy, Lazio, Apulia, Amalfi Coast & Naples. Wine and cooking class, trek experience, tour of monuments."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Learning is a good reason why I love to travel, I want to experience something unfamiliar and learn new skills or knowledge. Every country has something unique to teach us. Traveling, people can even learn something specific: a new language, different culture, a new cuisine, different habits of life."

Step slightly off the beaten path, however, and it is still possible to catch a glimpse of the Ionian coast's beauty, history, and culture.

Carmelo arranged an eBike tour for us in Tuscany, starting in San Gimignano, through to Siena and up to Montalcino. We finished it off with a couple of days on Lake Como.
