Hello, I am Mario and everyone in town knows me! I like to bring my Airbnb guests around my town and show them "my area". I love cycling and everything connected to water sports. That’s the reason why I founded my own sport company and I maturated a great knowledge of my town! I really like riding my bike in nature, especially in spring or fall, when it is not extremely warm. During those seasons, the temperature is perfect here :)

Mario is a fantastic tour guide full of interesting information about the region. I was the only one on the tour and he tailored it to my fitness level and interests. He showed me parts of Siracusa I would never have found otherwise and gave me tips for the rest of my trip. Highly recommend!

We had a great time with Mario and would definitely recommend this experience. Mario himself is very friendly and knowledgeable - he showed us lots of places that we never would have seen otherwise and told us lots about the history of Siracusa and the places we went to. The bikes were amazing quality and Mario made sure we were comfortable on them (he took us to a nearby park to practice riding them) and throughout the ride he always checked we were safe. He was also very accommodating - whether you are an experienced cyclist or a beginner I would recommend this as a great way to see interesting and beautiful areas of Siracusa that you would not see otherwise.

Mario was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Siracusa. We cycled along the coast with his high-quality bikes. We also took a quick swim in one of the spots. The view was breathtaking. Mario is a pleasant person to talk to. Highly recommended!
