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.

Abbiamo partecipato al tour a piedi di 3 ore guidato da Chloè, una ragazza dolce e coinvolgente nel racconto. È stata un’esperienza molto interessante e utile per comprendere a fondo la città di Palermo, ma soprattutto i palermitani. Un’attività diversa dal classico tour del centro città, che ci ha permesso di approfondire meglio uno dei temi legati al mondo mafioso e cioè la richiesta del pizzo. Consiglio vivamente questa attività a tutti i turisti curiosi rispetto a questa parte di realtà legata a Palermo!

The tour was brilliant. Linda's way of telling stories was very entertaining. Her stories were easy to follow and her knowledge was exceptional. She could answer all of our questions. The tour was a great way to explore the city and we would definitely recommend it to everyone!

The antimafia tour was super interesting and a nice route along the main sights on Palermo with background information about the Cosa nostra. We would recommend to everyone who comes to visit Palermo.

Our tour guide Stefano was excellent! You could feel his passion for the subject, everything he told the group he 100% stood behind. His knowledge was impressive and his story telling and humor were the cherry on top. At first we thought 3 hours would be a really long time but time flew by as we were so engaged in his stories. He always made sure everyone was fine and personalized the tour. I recommend this to everyone visiting Palermo!

Really great way to start your trip in Palmero...our guide, Ermes, was super knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the mafia. It was great to be shown various landmarks during the tour & to see some of the shops and restaurants who have joined the initiative. I would highly recommend the tour.
