About
For a glimpse into Palermo’s historical past, look no further than the medieval Kalsa District. Formed over a thousand years ago during the time of Arab rule, numerous kingdoms have left their mark on this remarkable section of Palermo. The result is one of the most culturally unique places to explore in Palermo with beautiful architecture, tasty cuisine, and a charm all its own. On this private tour, you’ll see its resilience for yourself by visiting its lively squares forming hubs of local entertainment. That classic aperitivo culture is in full effect in Piazza Rivoluzione and Piazza Sant’Anna, and you’ll see it firsthand. The Norman era produced iconic pieces of architecture, including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites that your local host will show you. From Arab-Norman times to Baroque and Gothic styles, you’ll be amazed at the beautiful palaces and churches on display!

We had an excellent time on our private walking tour, our guide Michelangelo was the perfect mix of informative and friendly. He took us on a tour that showed history, street food and some real hidden gems.

The tour with Michelangelo was great!
He replied within minutes and was super flexible with the starting time, which gave us the opportunity to have a nice breakfast before heading off.

During the tour he gave us great insights into areas, foods and customs that no lonely planet can find. Especially the recommendations for evening activities and bars were useful, as we had afterwards a good idea where to spend the night.

Walking Palermo with a local was great and inspiring. We had only 1 day here and he managed to show us most important spots and make a wholistic picture of the towns historic roots.

He is funny, kind and smart. Would do it all again!

Great experience. It was very relaxed and at my own pace. It was just me and the guide which was awesome. We stopped for a drink and stopped several times for street foods along the way which I really enjoyed. Guide took me wherever I wanted to go and explained history and culture. Recommend several places to check out later. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time discovering Palermo with Michelangelo. He was able
to show us a mix of must sees and off the beaten path places, all the
while sharing interesting stories about the city, the island and Italy
in general, and answering all our curiosities about local life and
mindset. It was a truly insightful experience to talk to someone who
could give us a locals perspective into life in Sicily. We had a great
time trying some local specialties too, and Michelangelo was very
considerate in recommending us some places to eat - which we tried and
loved! Can 100% recommend choosing him as your guide if you're looking
for an easygoing, openminded local to help you get to really know
Palermo!
