I represent an individual



My husband and I are American expats who acquired Italian citizenship, based on ancestry, and retired in Sicily in 2020. We live on a small farm near Taormina that we love to share with travelers from around the world. We live on-site and can assist you with your traveling needs. The apartment is separate and private, but we are close by if you need us. We speak primarily English, and a little Italian. We wrote a book about gaining Italian citizenship, buying and renovating a farm, finding lost relatives, and moving abroad during a pandemic, called "Over the Sicilian Moon," available on Amazon.
