"If you would like to gain an exceptionally positive experience I highly recommend that you travel with this "Let Me Italian You" group. Events are superbly organised. Both Gabriele and Massimiliano are 100% genuine and honest. You can spend four days with a world class professional photographer in Yan Pekar. He gave me every help in the world. The event in Sically between the 30th Aug - 3rd Sept 2017 was one of my most enjoyable experiences ever. Also, events are competitively priced and you will be looked after in every respect. I can find no fault with "Let Me Italian You" I highly recommend these once in a lifetime opportunities. Once in a Lifetime - Yesterday I witnessed a live volcano that i would not have otherwise seen. Thank you both so much."

Ileana from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"No matter how beautiful an experience is, there is always an end. "#DiscoverSicily" with #LetMeItalianYou has been one of this kind of experiences, when time flies too fast and you wish you could repeat it all over again. It's not just an opportunity to learn new skills in photography from experienced photographers and discover new places. It's also about making new friends, sharing moments, feelings, open up yourself to new people and new adventures, get out of your comfort zone to challenge your abilities. I had the chance to meet a wonderful group of amazing, interesting people that I won't forget and I will hopefully meet again. Special thanks to Yan Pekar for sharing his knowledge with all of us and to Massimiliano and Gabriele for giving me the chance to take part to this unforgettable adventure and taking care of every detail with such a unique kindness. I especially won't ever forget what we shared while hiking the Etna volcano, it has been "simply" awesome! Thank you so much for making it so special!"

"I participated in first edition of Discover Sicily and workshops of Let Me Italian You are an amazing experience, where most of all you can meet great people with the same passion for photography. Although I am a fresh photographer, my friend encouraged me to participate, based on her experience from workshop in Barcelona. Sicily was challenging to photograph, not to mention 10 km hike to Etna ;) I especially liked city of Syracuse and photo shoot with a beautiful model. Thanks to workshops I met amazing people from different countries, each one of them with an interesting life story, adventurous plans for future, travel addicts and passionates of photography. Because of them I learnt a lot about different points of view, ideas, tips and technical details, which I apprieciate. Very big thanks to Massi and Gabri for doing what they do, because LMIY is a MUST DO at least once in Your life!"

The trip has actually been like a daydream, we had the possibility to see lovely landscapes and feel the magic of the Sicilian atmosphere. For me, this experience has been absolutely amazing, I met a lot of lovely people, and I could feel like at home during the whole project, even founding new friends to share memories and project creating other ones!

I had a wonderful time, met excellent people and learned a lot about photography and Sicilian lifestyle, for which I thank the photographer Yan Pekar, for his lessons and feedback, and the twins, Massimiliano and Gabriele, for making it all happen. The journey thru historical cities, beautiful beaches and the Etna volcano was stunning, remarkable and every step took was to remember. I will definitely return and 'Discover Sicily' more and I highly recommend this project to those with passion for photography and traveling. I would love to see you all again in the future and wander new places along with the team 'Let me Italian you'."
Alexandra from Romania (Discover Sicily II)
"Discover Sicily 3 was an amazing and unforgettable experience that mixed two of my big passions: travel and photography. I would like to say a big 'Thank you!' to Massimiliano and Gabriele for the great organization. They managed to gather people from different countries, diverse backgrounds and styles who share a common passion for photography. We visited beautiful places, had joint photography sessions and enjoyed the taste of Sicily. I learned a lot about photography, it was my first time shooting models and really enjoyed the entire experience. Besides the learning process, I met some fantastic and friendly people, who I hope to see in the near future. It trully was a memorable experience and I would love to participate to a new project with Let me Italian you!"
Lavinia from Romania (Discover Sicily III)
"Io questo progetto lo adoro. Sarà che viaggiare è da sempre la mia prima grande passione (mi sono pure sparata una laurea in cinese pur di muovermi dal paesello...Bei tempi! ), sarà che a 10 anni mio padre mi mise in mano una macchina fotografica e una cinepresa Super 8 (partii per il mio primo viaggio all'estero e le foto di allora sono stampate nella mia memoria...Indelebili); sarà che finalmente ho deciso di dedicare un po' di tempo a me stessa (ad una certa età si comincia a capire qualcosa della vita),ma Let me Italian you ha trasformato il mio indice destro in un clickatore seriale compulsivo. Madonna quanto mi piace! Se poi ci si mette un'ottima proposta culturale e fotografica e la possibilità di conoscere e confrontarsi con altre persone appassionate come te, beh torno davvero indietro nel tempo, zaino in spalla e via!!
Al prossimo Discover!"
Stefania from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"Che dire ?....semplicemente un’esperienza fantastica!!! Cinque giorni intensi trascorsi nella bellissima Sicilia, con un gruppo di amici un po’ da tutto il mondo, scattando foto ma soprattutto divertendosi!!! Tutto questo grazie a Massimiliano e Gabriele, che con la loro pazienza e gentilezza sono riusciti a rendere speciale questa vacanza, permettendoci di visitare questa meravigliosa terra! E’ ammirevole il progetto che stanno portando avanti e soprattutto il loro impegno e passione! Il valore aggiunto sono state le persone che ho avuto modo di conoscere, ognuna mi ha regalato qualcosa…e spero davvero di ritrovarvi tutti presto!!! Insomma torni da un discover e vuoi subito ripartire! Ringrazio di cuore Massimiliano e Gabriele anche per la pazienza dimostrata per l’organizzazione “pre-partenza” ….a presto!!!"
Eleonora from Italy(Discover Sicily III)
"It was a great experience, I met new people from different nationalities, each of whom was an artist. The group's harmony was like a family, and we were able to see areas in Sicily that were really beautiful and great for photography, and I'm very happy to meet with this group and I will surely accompany them on the next trip. Thanks Gabriele and Massimilano for the wonderful 5 days."
Parisa from Iran (Discover Sicily III)
"A beautiful experience recently passed in Sicily, Grabriele and Massimiliano, the organizers, always proved to be available, Yan Pekar, the professional photographer who followed us, has certainly not been left in giving us useful explanations and suggestions. And finally, the company, which, of different origins, fused into a dilute siphon. An experience that personally has surely enriched me. Thanks again to Gabriele Massimiliano and Yan for their work and everyone for the good moments spent together."
Stefano from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"Guys, we were watching the FB page of the project but I don't have an account so I can't publish publicly (it's the first time that I am sad to not be in Facebook, just think about it). It was amazing, I had so much fun, I met you and amazing people. I exactly expected something like that, and it was even better! I'll join you again, very soon! Thanks!"
Silvia from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"Ciao Gabriele e Massimiliano, ecco le foto di discover Sicily. Non è stato facile anche questa volta, ogni foto un ricordo, ogni ricordo una "lacrimuccia". Un gruppo meraviglioso in una terra stupenda come la Sicilia, vorrei fosse possibile iniziare nuovamente domani. Come al solito la vostra organizzazione ha funzionato alla perfezione nonostante la difficoltà di gestire un gruppo eterogeneo di persone con diverse personalità e caratteri. Grazie mille ancora di tutto. Alla prossima, che spero sia il prima possibile. Un grossissimo abbraccio."
Marco from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"The participation in “Discover Sicily 2” was a unique and unforgettable experience for me. The organizers managed to gather together people with different styles, sharing a common passion for photography.
Visiting beautiful places, joint photography sessions and enjoying the taste of Sicilian life with these great people was a memorable experience.
Cooperation and mutual support were prerequisites for enhancing our photography skills."
Magda from Poland (Discover Sicily II)
"In 5 days I have met such as an amazing group of people which I would never though to have so much fun! I took many pictures and visited wonderful places, last but not least I ate so many tasty meals, like ARANCINI (they are the best ever). I shared with these powerful people my and their biggest passion: photography!
It was beautiful to partecipate at Discover Sicily. Gabriele and Massimiliano, guys, you are awesome!"
Silvia from Italy (Discover Sicily II)
"Sono appena tornata dal Discover Sicily III, semplicemente bellissimo! Ho scelto di fare questa esperienza perché adoro la fotografia, e avevo una voglia matta di tornare in Sicilia, bhè, questa era l’occasione perfetta per unire le due cose! Oggi sono a casa e ripensando a quello che è stato…devo dire che i cinque giorni trascorsi, sono stati ben più di questo…non sono stati solo Sicilia e fotografia, ma sono stati persone, nuove amicizie, una compagnia piacevolissima, tante risate…sono stati mare, lunghe passeggiate e panorami mozzafiato…sono stati condivisione di momenti ed esperienze fantastiche che ho messo tutte in valigia e portato via con me. Certe emozioni è difficile descriverle, perché c’è un solo modo per condividerle, viverle! Direi che un grazie particolare va a Gabri e Massi, i nostri “twins”, che con la loro semplicità e disponibilità rendono possibile tutto questo; a Yan Pekar, che ci ha seguiti e dato ottimi consigli per tutto il viaggi e a tutti voi, compagni di avventura, che avete completato questo bellissimo puzzle! Spero che capiti presto una nuova occasione di viaggio."
Stefania from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"That was a really amazing experience: the two guys Gabriele and Massimiliano are so friendly and kind with all partecipans; the organization was almost perfect and Yan Pekar was a precius teacher who gave us good advices to take pictures as best as possible in the different wonferful locations. Finally is very nice to know a lot of new friends from all around the world!!! So in a word I say SUPER: I wanna go with them again for another interesting "photographic trip" as soon as possible!!!"
Elisa from Italy (Discover Sicily III)
"One of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Thanks to each of the participants for the days full of smiles, the desire to know and to help each other. Really thanks to Gabri and Massi for the wonderful opportunity they give each time with these trips. You can learn a lot of photography and humanity. "
Cristina from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"Fun, fun, fun! The coolest way to visit a new place, while learning a lot of useful tricks about photography! I had the chance to get personalised advice, improve my skills and have a good time at the same time.
I will definately do it again!"
Yiota from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"It was my first adventure and certainly the first of a long series (I hope). I have learned so much from master Yan, values that cannot be taught like friendship, the solidarity that the whole group has shown me, I have understood that despite my physical limitations, I can achieve unthinkable things for my legs. I met wonderful people, I was sad when it all ended. However, I am happy to have participated, I will always thank Massimiliano and Gabriele for giving me the opportunity to grow again. I love you, thanks to everyone. I hope that i made good shooting. "
Giuseppe from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"I joined some pretty well organised daytrips, seminars and group dinners during Discover Sicily V. The brothers were always available and caring, giving a friendly note to the group."
Antigoni from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"It was my first time participating in something like this and I am glad that I took in this opportunity. It was a great way to visit and learn about Sicily. Very well organized and the twins will help you and answer you every question that you have. Plus these projects are a great way to meeting different people from around the world and getting to know new places. Everyone should Discover at least one city with these guys! See you next time in a new city. "
Athina from Greece (Discover Sicily V)
"Good organization, great way to visit new places and at the same time acquire new skills and photography techniques."
Giuseppe from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"After Discover Sicily Project, I went back home and started to think about all good things that had happened during the project! I couldn't believe that was over! I visited so many beautiful places, met so many wonderful people, learned a lot! I got a lot of memories and inspiration! Twins, you have incredible power to share with other good emotions! Keep doing it! Guys, thank you for being family this time! Hugs!"
Zlata from Belarus (Discover Sicily IV)
"Only stars? Not enough, guys" UNIQUE experience, perfect organization, special people. I left with much lower expectations than the thousand emotions I felt thanks to Let me Italian you. Today I feel much "richer" of experience and people! As I told yesterday: if at every Discover, I'll wait the return flight with the same emotions, feelings and nostalgia, I won't stop to travel with you! From now I'll take with me a piece of you!"
Agnese from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Massi and Gabri, you're absolutely FANTASTIC! Organizing something like this is really a great challenge. Thanks for this experience I could improve myself, I've discovered new places and made important friendships. Thanks for the oppurtunity that you gave to us! Absolutely five stars! I hope to join you again!"
Mariagrazia from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Thank you again for the amazing experience!!!For me was an opportunity to learn new way of things..I'm sure that I will join another project soon.

I have inside a lot of emotions that I want to share with everyone! This project give me the opportunity to improve my skills, thanks to Yan Pekar!!!"
Sylvia from Poland (Discover Sicily IV)
"I like an italian word "la porta" (door) It's like a "portal": the media, which transfers somebody to other place. The picture of the hotel's door will remember me and transfer (in Italian "portare") to the wonderful 4 days in Sicily with amazing team of the amateur photograpers in the project DISCOVER SICILY, organized by Letmeitalianyou. Our project is over only yesterday and I already miss it! "Ciao" in Italian means "hi" and "bye" at the same time.
So, ciao my new friends! "
Evelina from Russia (Discover Sicily IV)
"One of the most beautiful experience in my life! Perfect organization, new places to visit every day, new friendships, a connection of different countries and languages, laughs, fun, everything thanks to Let me Italian you. You're so powerful together, Twins! I go back home with the heart full of joy, happy to have met amazing and special people like you and with the awareness that it's only a goodbye!"
Serena from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Posso dire senza alcuna titubanza che l'esperienza di Let me italian you è stata per me come una boccata d'aria fresca, un respiro di sollievo e gioia nella mia routine di tutti i giorni. È un'esperienza che mi ha regalato positività, voglia di fare, di scoprire e imparare. In soli quattro giorni, non solo ho avuto la possibilità di vedere e capire meglio il mondo della fotografia, ma ho avuto l'occasione di conoscere delle fantastiche persone e creare dei bellissimi legami in un'atmosfera di condivisione, semplicità e curiosità; un'atmosfera resa possibile dalla voglia di fare e dalla positività che caratterizzano Massimiliano e Gabriele, che in tutti e quattro i giorni non hanno mai mancato di essere gentili, disponibili e di ottima compagnia. Consiglio a tutti questo viaggio, in particolare a chi magari riserva qualche paura a lasciarsi andare in nuove esperienze come la sottoscritta."
Laura from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Recently my first experience with Let me Italian you ended and I am super happy to have taken part to Discover Sicily. It was an unforgettable and educational trip that allow me to meet fantastic people, visiting unique places and learning many things. As I told to Gabri and Massi, what they do reduce the distances and connect people. I can't wait to join you again. Thanks a lot!"
Caterina from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"Discover Sicily 4 was the first time I ever photographed strangers and models. As far as I know, taking portraits can easily turn into awkwardness: that’s why I stick to photographing people I have known for a long time. Yan‘s clever practical lectures, however, helped a lot to understand the difference between simply taking pictures of a person and actually collaborating with a model. On the second day, shooting in Syracuse, I think we all experienced a great creative flow, which was only possible because of the positive and conforming atmosphere of our group. It really made all the difference. These few days wasn’t only about travelling and learning (though, those were also great parts) but also about getting small peeks into each other’s world and I really liked what I’ve seen. I’m glad I could be a part of this project and I hope I’ll see you lovely people again! (spoiler: the twins are great at organizing things)"
Alexandra from Hungary (Discover Sicily IV)
"First project with Let me Italian you and I have to say it was an an unforgettable experience! I had the opportunity to admire amazing places, meeting fantastic people that I'll remmeber a beautiful memory, to learn new photography skills. A special thanks to twins for their kindness and professionalism before the departures and during the whole project."
Alessia from Italy (Discover Sicily IV)
"This is my first time in Italy and I love it. Sicily was took my heart. And this is my second time join with Letmeitalianyou and It was amazing experience, I met so many talented people and I learn about photography form Yan, and I wish I can join to the next project with them."
Aris from Indonesia (Discover Sicily V)
"Great people and great experience! This was my first time in Sicily and I couldn't hope in a better experience. I joined a wonderful group of people, we all learned from each other.. just wonderful!!!"
Rodolfo from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"For sure an experience to repeat for many reasons! A project that leave you many lessons that go further any language barries, as this edition of Discover Sicily V. I improved my level of English, I learnt new techiniques of photography and life lessons that I'll always take with me!"
Rossana from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"If you like traveling, meeting new friends and most of all taking photos while you learn and improve, Let me Italian you is perfect for you. I highly recommend to join to their next adventures!"
Rita from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"Hi guys, I couldn't write before because I'm still in Sicilia looking for new adventures. Anyway, I'm not sure how to start, but this is my second project, and I decided to participate in it because in the first one I cross almost every shield I had. I'm a shy person but I never was in a situation like this, where no one knows you an the only way "to survive" it's being yourself. Letmeitalianyou give me the chance to grow up in someway. So I wasn't afraid this time in Sicilia because I knew I could try to be my best version again. Of course I'm still shy, but again I learn something new: not to judge so fast. Normally I don't or at least I think I don't but this time I was conscious about that And I'm saying this for many reasons but specially because at first I thought that the Italians more or less in this group were a little close to other people, but I don't know how I become one of them and they open their arms to me and we let us to be part to each other. Also I think I had the chance to speak with almost everybody, to know each other everyday a little bit more. That helps to be more confortable in the group and start to connect with others. Then it ends letting a kind of (positive) emptiness inside of you, because all what we felt in this travel we builded together and it was so beautiful! Tweens, I have to thank you again for creating projects like this because it's not just about photography it's about build new memories and families. It's amazing to feel this for a second time. And also thanks to Yan, because all your tipps were very useful, explained in a simple way. Teaching us how to look in to the simple and in to the details, and always open to help and listen. I really learnt a lot from you! In the end, this proyect become to a perfect combination. Thanks all for being part of this and staying in my life for a couple days. My second time in this project and I only can say: that's amazing! If you like travel, photography and you are brave enough to stay with people you don't know, I strongly recommend you that experience because you will learn, have fun and for me one of the most important things, you will build a new family."
Marta (Discover Sicily V)
"Hello dears twins, thank you so much, I loved every moment, and special meet you again. Sorry if I wasn't 100% my low back unfortunately, now i return my dairy rotines. I think when i will join again to another discovery, maybe next year, maybe Marrakech. You know your are in my heart! Keep going!"
Maria Teresa from Portugal (Discover Sicily V)
"I’m here at the airport waiting my flight... just wanted to say thank you to everybody! This was my third experience with the amazing group of Let me Italian you and my first time in Sicily! I’m sad writing this words, most of the others experiences that i had, because in this edition i found again my trip friend Houou , the helpful teacher Yan Pekar and the two models Anastasia and Adrianna that became part of my life... i wish you all to enjoy life and have a really nice future! Hope to see you again! A special GRAZIE to Massi and Gabri that gave me this big opportunity... travel, learn and meet new friends! Love you all...In 9 months: 3 different countries, more than 60 new friends, over 3000 pictures taken. This is Let me Italian you. You are like a drug: once you try you can’t stop using it!"
Fabrizio from Italy (Discover Sicily V)
"I can officially say it was one of the best experiences of my life! I spent 4 amazing days in the beautiful Sicily, sharing my passion for photography with a lovely group from all over the world!" Ileana said.
