She offers her local incomparable knowledge and a singular initiation to the Mediterranean treasures. Depending on your wishes, she will do the paddling while you glide across calm waters, assisting you with logistical details and arranging cultural activities and thrilling adventures (special interest guided tours, wine-tastings, excursions on Mount Etna…).
