Our focus is to develop a friendly, person-to-person relationship. We are friends who will receive you as a friend, giving you the privileged access usually reserved for locals. We tour catered to your needs, preferences and budget. "Read More" on Website. Ps. For anyone out there that wrongly thinks that my job could be misled for a Licensed Tour Guide, You are Wrong! My clients know what they want and that is Not You. So, even though I'm still open to genuine and honest collaborations, I kindly ask competitors to Stop trying so hard to jeopardise my reputation on Tripadvisor by posting negative and false reviews, but instead try to concentrate more on Why your business is SO slow. If you can't figure it out on your own, just Get a Life! (Peace, Don Saro.) « less

My name is Virginia and I'm a genuine Sicilian. I've studied Humanities, Languages and Art. I have a University Degree in Languages and Foreign Literature and a Phd in Medieval Art. I've lived abroad a number of times, in order to upgrade my English and French. I now live in Palermo, my beloved city, in which past and present collide rather than merge. Palermo is the capital of Sicily and it was the capital of many important reigning powers in the past. You can't miss a guided tour in one of the most attractive cultural Italian towns, and I think I could be the right guide for you! I'm a licensed and certified guide of Sicily, English, french and italian speaking languages. I am specialized for Palermo and its province, with more than 20 years professional experience in this field. However, I have never lost my passion for the job, and it's always a great pleasure for me to work with and meet so many different people from so many different countries of the world, all of them interested in discovering, through me, the splendid corners and historical monuments of Palermo, Cefalu and many other attractions. I'm completely flexible and able to offer personalized guided tours, also with a licensed driver who would pick you up at the port or at your hotel, even outside the city. I'm at your disposal to offer advice and organize your tours, based as much as possible on your own personal wishes. Having followed a master in Enotourism, I can also organize wine-tours and wine-tasting. I hope to help you plan a fun and memorable visit to Palermo and my wonderful island very soon! « less

Through alleys, palaces and ancient legends we come to the Norman Cathedral with the tomb of Frederick II of Swabia and the silver “Vara” of Santa Rosalia. Among the gardens of Villa Bonanno and the ancient ruins of the Paleopolis there is the Royal Palace which houses 3000 years of our history and the splendid mosaics of the Palatine Chapel in which the Arabs, Byzantines and Normans shared their knowledge, esoteric secrets, habits and life with great tolerance. Walking along the ancient fortifications we will take a picture of St. John of the Hermits, a beautiful Arab-Norman building, with its particular domes. Discovering medieval quarters, Spanish facades and courtyards of the historic Mansions a surprise visit will introduce you to the Hebrew Palermo. Finally here we are at The Four Corners for a new cultural experience, visit St. Joseph of the Theatines, potent antagonists of the Jesuits.BREAK 1:00 pm Break and free time for lunch a few steps from the focaccerie, old Taverns, gourmet restaurants and street food.AFTERNOON (wed & fri) 3:00 pm, The Four Corners (meeting point)Let’s meet at the four corners to finish up near the sea-front at 6 pm. The famous Pretorian Fountain, also called the fountain “of Shame” is the setting for some popular stories. From the Piazza Bellini and the impressive tour of San Cataldo of the Order of the Knights of Malta (XII century), we will cross the tiny streets of the Corporations of artisans to reach St. Francis of Assisi and its treasures from the 1300 to the Baroque period. From there, we’ll discover the richest and darkest centuries of Sicilian history between the social criticism of the Serpotta’s stuccos in the Oratory of San Lorenzo to the terraces of the famous movie “The Leopard”, and then to the noble furnishings, collections and stables of Palazzo Mirto. In the shade of the ancient Ficus Magnolioides of Marina Square in another surprise visit we will follow footsteps of the Holy Inquisition. Our walk ends in the old port district of La Cala where we will eat the traditional Sicilian cannoli and gelati.Palermo Walking tour « less
