Gianni is a historian who has earned advanced degrees from European and American institutions. I highly recommend him for tours anywhere in Sicily, but especially in Western Sicily where we met him for a tour of Trapani his hometown!. Gianni drove us to see important, historic sites in Trapani and then walked with us in the historic centers of the city. We stopped at piazza's where Gianni explained important events that were truly eye opening ! His knowledge of history was evident in that he wasn't just reading a script and was able to answer questions and fill in the details that made the history of Trapani come alive for us.
