Born in Hollywood, California, and raised in his Italian family’s restaurant alongside his five siblings. Marcello was immersed in Italian food and wine culture as a child, learning how to spell Chianti before his ABC’s. He first came to the island of Sicily almost 20 years ago on a train from Rome and never quite left. He fell in love with the people, culture and most of all the food!! His multicultural adventurous spirit, love of food + wine, and a passion for meeting people, led him to become a Travel Specialist, using his “Sicilian connections” for kindred spirits looking to discover and explore the cultural mosaic of Sicily. As a long-time resident of the island, he connects his guests to the same "local life" experiences that he has had the privilege of discovering personally. Whether it's finding that perfect local Trattoria or unique Bed & Breakfast, making cheese with shepherds alongside ancient ruins, tasting robust wine on Mt. Etna after a leisurely hike on a volcano, picking olives and making your own oil for the best souvenirs ever, or just visiting towns, ancient ruins and outdoor sites with passionate and knowledgeable cultural and outdoor guides. He strives to personalize a Sicily Adventure that is in line with your individual travel style and infused with the "local life" experience. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
