Det skal I lave

We will ride through the pedestrian areas of the old town center of Palermo and along the cycle lanes that connect it with the outskirts, to discover how Palermo is changing 'inside and outside', healing from the wounds inflicted by the violence of the Mafia which reached its peak with the massacres of 1992.
This tour is a tribute to the memory of heroes like the prosecutors Falcone and Borsellino, whose murders pushed the Sicilian people to react against the Mafia and inspired collective action of a whole generation of antimafia campaigners.
We will ride about 12 km, mainly flat: piece of cake!
Other things to note
The bike tour is 12 km long.
It is easy: you do not need a high training.

I volunteer in a grass-roots Anti-mafia organization called Addiopizzo. Since more than 10 years I've been guiding travellers from all over the world in Palermo to tell them the story of the Mafia and of the Anti-mafia movement. My goal is to show the real face of my country, as Sicily is not the Mafia.
I also work as a bike tour leader, so I created a urban bike tour in Palermo: there is a lot to learn while biking through a flat itinerary in the old town and also beyond!

Om organisationen: Addiopizzo Travel



Addiopizzo is a grassroots Anti-Mafia movement, founded in Palermo in 2004. Its mission is to drive the community to rebel against extortion racket. Through the years, Addiopizzo has been building a network of shops and businesses whose owners refuse to pay money to the Mafia. Addiopizzo encourages ethical consumption among locals and travellers and offers support to the victims of extortion.

Her skal du være

First stop is Piazza Magione, the heart of the old area called Kalsa. It is still a poor area with many social problems, but it is also a symbol of re-birth as it is turning to a new life.
In Via D'Amelio we will stop at the memorial of Paolo Borsellino's murder: an olive tree stands where the bomb exploded in 1992.
We will also stop for a yummy gelato in a place owned by one of the many shopkeepers who rebelled to the protection racket!

Il tour è un'idea originale, arricchente e divertente. Veronica è una guida molto preparata, appassionata e accogliente; ti guida con calore nella storia dolorosa della sua città con uno spirito di rivalsa che ho ammirato. Lo consiglio a chi ha voglia di fare un esperienza in città dal senso civico e sociale.

It’s been a nice experience cycling and learning about the anti Mafia movement in Palermo. Edoardo is a passionate storyteller and easily managed to do a bi-lingual tour. Thanks for this interesting and versatile experience (movement, education, ice-cream, you get it all)
