What you'll do

- STROLL IN THE OLD TOWN OF AUGUSTA WITH VISIT AT LOCAL MARKET - WALK ALONG THE COAST IN TYPICAL MEDITERRANEAN SHRUB PLUS SWIM IN SECRET COVES - PICNIC AT MY SMALL COUNTRY HOUSE BY THE SEA UNDER AN OLIVE TREE The old town of Augusta sits on an island which I will show you leisurely on foot. Its hidden treasures, local markets, Baroque churches will be enjoyed at a slow pace. Augusta is not as popular as the old town of Siracusa and for this reason, so incredibly genuine. On leaving the old town/island by car because it's 5km away we will drive past salt pans with flamingoes. After that, we will be exploring the wonderful coastline rich with hidden coves and inlets. We will set out on foot along a path which will reveal the most beautiful creeks of this part of the island. We will enjoy the typical Mediterranean flora and landscape while gazing at the ever-changing colours fo the sea where, if willing, you can plunge into and snorkel. On returning to our starting point (my country house by the sea) you will be treated to a traditional picnic al fresco under the olive tree. History, traditions, sunshine, seaside and good food for a taste of La Dolce Vita of the South!

Daniela

I have lived in London for almost twenty years, the last ten of which, working as a bookseller at Foyles Bookshop. I am originally from Augusta (in the province of Siracusa) where I have returned three years ago to resettle and work in the tourism industry which allows me to use both my love for the English language and for my island of birth's many treasures. Since May 2015 I have been working as a cycling guide taking large groups of tourists (mainly Norwegian, British and American) around the Baroque towns of South Eastern Sicily.

What's included

Food
Picnic by the sea or under the ancient olive tree at my small country house. It will suit both fish lovers and vegetarians.…
Transport
I will walk you around the old town then take you by car to the seaside where we will start our hike. I will drive you back.

Where you'll be

We will explore the old town of Augusta starting from its piazza Duomo and we will slowly make our way to its local market and its traditional bakeries/pastry shops where you can sample some typical delicacies if you wish. We will visit a few of the most beautiful churches and continue along the seaside where you might get a chance to spot a few flamingoes before we reach the amazing creeks where you can swim and snorkel if you wish to.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 8 and up can attend. The hike by the sea is easy. Guests should be used to hike on partly rocky paths and in possibly hot weather.

More tips

I am very flexible with the experience which can be developed in different ways: less time in town and more time by the sea for example or more time in each stop for those who love taking photographs)
