Palermo: NO Mafia Walking Tour

1. Palermo: NO Mafia Walking Tour

Explore Teatro Massimo, the open-air market "Il Capo", Piazza Della Memoria (Memorial dedicated to prosecutors and judges killed by the Mafia), Piazza Beati Paoli, the Cathedral, the City Hall, and Piazza Magione. Every stop will be a pause for reflection, a chance to mull over the realities of the Mafia and consider the civic movement against Mafioso power. Along the tour, you will meet shopkeepers who have said NO to paying the Pizzo, who have subscribed to the ethical consumer campaign ‘Pago chi non Paga’ (I pay who does not pay). This campaign is promoted by Addiopizzo to support those that have decided to rebel against the Mafia. End the tour at Antica Focacceria San Francesco, one of the oldest restaurants in Palermo, famous for its ‘Cibo da Strada Palermitano’ (street food of Palermo). Learn about how the owners had the courage to speak out against extortion. Lunch is not included but if you decide to stay you can taste some specialties like, "pane con la Milza" (sandwich stuffed with beef spleen and ricotta cheese), "Arancine" (rice balls), "Panelle" (chickpea fritters), "Anelletti al Forno" (baked ring-shaped pasta), "Involtini di Melanzane" (eggplant rolls), "Sarde a Beccafico" (sardine rolls) and the famous Cannoli.

Good day tour, stripping away the myths of the Sicilian Mafia and the positive things being used to help dismantle their influence in Sicily. Guide was excellent. We stopped at some interesting places on our route through Palermo. I visited the Gelato shop several times during my trip. It was excellent.

It was very interesting and entertaining. Guide also told a lot about the region and city. Very appealing and personable. According to the tour guide, the lunch tour is more recommended. As more markets and visited food stalls have opened here.

This was a very thorough tour and well worth it! Angelo was a great guide and educated us not just about food but culture and history of Palermo.

Interesting background information, very well explained, pleasant group size.

Definitely recommended to also learn something about this history.
