“I don’t envy God’s paradise because I’m so satisfied to live in Sicily…”. I’m Mariarita and this is the best quote that explains the love for my homeland. I was born in Messina and I studied foreign languages since I was a child. The dream of my life was to become a tour guide having the possibility to explain how beautiful and enchanting is my island. I dreamed to share with people, from all over the world, the perfumes, sounds and views of this wonderful piece of earth that hosted in the past different population and cultures. Today this is my reality and I will be very happy to let you discover and learn the history of Sicily and I hope to leave you the desire to come back.
Discover Messina was…
Discover Messina was excellent. They picked us up at the port on time and with name signs. We boarded a nice clean bus, and off we went. Mariarita talked about Sicily during our trip. She gave us some delicious almond pastry and a water bottle. By far, the most impressive experience was the driving. Going up to Castelmola is not easy, and boy, that driver drove excellently. I’m talking about going 1736 feet above sea level on roads that twisted around like spaghetti. Two thumbs up!
Great experience and value for money
We had an great experience on this tour. Easy pick up straight from the cruise terminal. The tour guide Mariarita was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us lots of information and history about the places we were visiting and Sicilian culture. Good amount of time spent at both stops which gave us a chance to look around so weren’t rushed. I would definitely recommend using this company for your excursion as was great value for money.
Get away from the City with Mariarita
Get away from the City & into the mountains for a tour of Taormina & Castelmola! Mariarita was an
enthusiastic guide sharing the history of these two cities! Taormina offered awesome views of Mount
Etna! You’ll have time to explore on your own & grab a bite or shop in Castelmola!
The guide made the tour!
Our tour guide Mariarita was wonderful! She took very good care of everyone, she was funny and very
informative. The tour had a lot of strenuous walking, so wouldn’t recommend for those with any mobility
Castelmola and Taormina with Mariarita
We had a great day touring Castelmola and Taormina with Mariarita. We had great views of Mount Etna
and Mariarita recommended the best place to get lunch and Canolis in Taormina! Her “fresh baked”
almond treats were a great surprise as well!
Mariarita é una guida gentile, preparata e socievole. Vi posso solo consigliare questo tour. Grazie allo
staff e soprattutto a Mariarita 💞
The best of Castelmola and Taormina in some hours
I arrived in a cruise in Messina port and Marianita guided us through this amazing tour through Castelmola and Taormina.
Mariarita was incredible and shared with us lots of details about Sicily what added a lot of value to the visit. The places are all astonishing, the Greek Theater in special was a must.
Really would love to have more time to explore more, hope to return one day 🙂
