WORLD TOURIST GUIDE DAY - Siracusa

yesterday it was  the last day of the celebration of the International Tourist Guide Day in Italy!
Since 1990 - 21st February , every year  all guides, all over the world, let people know what they  do and the way they  do it   with love and competence, promoting their places in favour of local cultural and social development.

This year, as far as Italy from 16th  to 24th February it was   a great success. From Sicily to Val d'Aosta almost 200 different events totally free, offering special tours to everybody.
 Tv and press promoted our initiatives  and we are so proud and happy.

In Siracusa we had really a wonderful  weekend last week, opening temporarily the new excavations  about the Ionic temple, the so called Artemision in Piazza Duomo below the Townhall.








Beyond any expectations we had thousands of visitors and  innunerable compliments.

As far as me, my WORLD TOURIST GUIDE DAY was a  new  experience.
WE  reserved a special tour to  the National Deaf  Association (Siracusa's group) and with the help of an interpreter LIS (Italian language of signs) we visited the ruins.

New cooperation between the local Association of Tourist Guides from Siracusa and FIABA (Fondo Italiano Abbattimento Barriere Architettoniche- Italian Fund against Architectural  Barriers) .
A special thanks to Bernadette Lo Bianco who so well represents FIABA in Sicily  and made it possible.

 New horizons opened to me!




To all my collegues
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
