Meet your guide
I was born in Germany to a German mother and a Sicilian father from Palermo. I grew up bilingual, but I speak English since I was 16. I live in Rome since 1996. I am married to my wonderful wife Silvia and we have five children. We have three boys and two princesses aged between 4-22.
Since 1999 I have pleasure to work as city guide in Rome. I cooperate with different tour operators, cruises . I work in a very professional way, with lots of enthusiasm and humour. I promise that I won’t give you an academic lecture, but will help you to enjoy your stay.
