Know More about this tour

It is impossible to describe the Sicilian capital without noting its contrasts: elegance and decadence, light and shadow, rich and poor, metropolitan and provincial, joy and sorrow, perfumes and stenches, Mafia and Anti-Mafia. A city which captivates, stupefies, and sometimes shocks visitors; it certainly isn't an experience one forgets.

Go on a tour and find out about brave owners of hotels, restaurants, farms, and transport agencies who have made the brave decision to stand against Mafia. Learn about the Mafia and the civil Anti-Mafia movement whilst walking through the picturesque historic centre. Discover a city that is finally rebelling against the protection rackets. Every stop is a cause for reflection, a chance to mull over the realities of the Mafia and consider the civic movement against Mafioso power. You will meet shopkeepers who have said no to the protection racket. 

On the tour, you will pass in front of the Palermo cathedral, the Palazzo Riso, the Palermo Court, the Massimo theater. The tour ends at Antica Focacceria San Francesco, one of the oldest restaurants in Palermo, famous for the characteristic Palermo’s street food.

  • We took this tour a few weeks ago. Before the tour began our guide checked in everyone. I had booked and paid for the tour on line weeks before. She insisted I give her my ss number or passport number. I said no and she wasn't too happy. The tour itself was interesting but too long (3 hours)

  • Great tour. Very educational and informative. Highly recommended.

  • An excellent walking tour by someone who really knew his subject.

  • Our tour guide Stefan was extremely informative and was patient with all our questions. We learnt plenty about another side of Palermo and the thinking in the of brave, intelligent people who lead this new direction in the society. Bravo Pizzo and bravo Stefan!
