* A traveler said: "Daniel was fantastic and although expecting a child at any moment he never appeared nervous or rushed. He took his time explaining everything we saw. He was hired as a driver but was knowledgeable and professional enough to be a guide. He made the long drive interesting for us and my 14 year old son. Having had a son the night he dropped us off he arranged our transport to the airport several days later with an excellent driver and a very comfortable van. I would highly recommend Daniel for any travel trough Sicily and be ready for an informative experience beyond just transportation."

Here was one of the most famous scenes from the movie "Ocean's twelve"! And then Commissioner Montalbano who in one of the episodes comes here to spend the holidays with his beloved Livia. And still many other fiction! We would let you taste the cassatelle, excellent fried sweets, with a delicious filling of ricotta and chocolate chips inside.
