Det skal I lave

You will walk with me or one of my fellow team members through the main roads and the back streets of the picturesque old town. You will learn about the Mafia, its brutal violence and its business, as well as about the people who stood up against the power of the organised crime.

We will stop in front of monuments, memorials and shops, each is connected with a particular aspect of our story. Sometimes a small detail, that seems unsignificant at first glance, has a story behind it that is worth to be told.

You will meet shopkeepers who have said NO to the protection money and hear their stories: you will also have the chance to support them, just buying a gelato, some local products or a souvenir of Palermo.
Other things to note
You can recognize me because at the meeting point I will have a "No Mafia" bagpack on my shoulder.

IMPORTANT! The tour is offered in English, Italian or French, depending from the dates. Please scroll down this page and choose the correct date/language in the section "SEE MORE DATES".

I was born and live Palermo, Sicily. I graduated in History and I work as a trip leader. I love to get in contact with different people and cultures, either by traveling or by meeting my guests here.
I think that the best way to express our love for our country is to show its most authentic face and to try to change what we do not like about it. This is why I am an activist in an anti-mafia movement called Addiopizzo, which encourages the shopkeepers to rebel against the protection racket.
I have been volunteering for Addiopizzo since the beginning, in 2004. I am proud to say that many things have changed since then. On behalf of Addiopizzo I give speeches and lead tours: people are eager to learn what the Mafia really is, behind the stereotypes. I can give them my personal experience as a Sicilian and as an activist.

Om organisationen: Addiopizzo Travel



Addiopizzo is a grass-roots Anti-Mafia movement, founded in Palermo in 2004. Its mission is to push the community to rebel against protection racket. Addiopizzo built a network of shops and business whose owners refuse to pay money to the Mafia and encourages ethical consumerism to support it. The organization gives assistance to the victims of extortion and promote cultural and social activities.

Her skal du være

Starting from the magnificent Teatro Massimo, symbol of the rebirth of Palermo after the terrible years of the Mafia violence, we will explore the traditional open-air market, stop at the memorial dedicated to the victims of the Mafia, discuss about the role of the Church in front of the Cathedral and that of the politics at the City Hall, pass through piazza Magione and end the tour at the famous restaurant Antica Focacceria San Francesco.

Veronica was a very good Guide, you could feel how important it is for her to share the story's about the mafia, but also about the anti-mafia. I would recommend this tour to everyone who is staying in Palermo. You can learn so much, and like Veronica said: Knowledge and Education are the way to fight the Mafia!

A brilliant experience. We had a lovely guide called Valeria with a deep knowledge of the city and its struggles and successes relating to the mafia. As well as being a great way to orient yourself within the city, the organisation are doing truly great things for the local community and it was a pleasure to support this through attending the tour.

Palermo smascherata in maniera chiara e naturale, raccontando vicende che hanno cambiato la lotta alla mafia. La chiusura all'antica Focacceria di San Francesco rende l'idea di come si possa veramente fare qualcosa di concreto. Da non perdere!!

Nous avons fait le tour en français avec Chloé, qui a été une super guide, expliquant avec enthousiasme et passion et toujours très prête à répondre à nos questions. Nous avons pu clarifier beaucoup de malentendus que nous avions sur la mafia et faire une visite de Palerme en même temps. Nous avons adoré!
