Austrian by origin, Sicilian by choice. I really love Sicily and especially Syracuse: there is history everywhere, the nature (spring!), the sea, the climate.
I have been working in the travel industry for many years in different countries and different fields. Only recently I have opened my own business as a private travel consultant for tailor made solutions for active tourism in Sicily.
Max was born in Syracuse, he is "dello Scoglio" - from the rock - meaning he grew up in Ortigia and therefore is a true Syracusan. He was a professional soccer player in his youth and now trains children. Max relaxes best when he's at the sea or in the sea to do spear fishing. He is also a spectacular cook - of course, he learnt from his grandmother!
