It was great to try so many traditional sicilian dishes at the local Market with our amazing guide Angelo. He made everything about the tour amazing even left us his contact details so we could ask where to get the best takeaway pizza and gave us a fantastic recommendation. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

We found this visit very interesting and informative. We really enjoyed our guide Chloe. She explained to us the history of this no mafia movement the links of the mafia with the church. Thanks to her and congratulations to all those people who dare to say no

The most exciting visit of our trip. Discovering Palermo through the anti-Mafia struggle is extremely interesting, and our guide Chloé sent us her story in perfect French and with a very particular involvement. Thanks to her and to the Adiopizzo association!
