Giorgio F.

Palermo, Italy

Hello! Are you planning to discover Palermo and Sicily?

Sounds great! So let me introduce myself, it will be my pleasure to give you the opportunity to explore a unique Palermo, my town, and Sicily.
I am Giorgio, a licensed Tour Leader specialized in experiential tourism with a special passion for Food tours. I define myself a Food guide because, basically, I am a foodie and I have been traveling Sicily for 20 years to discover all the most traditional and genuine local food specialties and wine.
I have been working for 19 years in tourism, promotion and leading. I am really passionate about my island and especially about its food, an important evidence of the long and complex history of Sicily.  

The mix of cultures who dominated Sicily has left here an incredible heritage, sometimes changing radically the face of this exotic island. The comprehension of Sicily is endless. You can follow many ways to get to it, the incredible art treasures, the amazing landscapes or its food culture. The current Sicily is the result of more than 3. 000 years of intense history. The heart of the Mediterranean.

Give me the opportunity to make you discover Palermo and Sicily through its tasty and original food and its superb wine. I will help you to find out the connections among the food, the art treasures and the multicultural history of this place. We will enjoy everything together finding a good balance between these three elements. Here, everything is ancient and traditional, like the Arabic Arancina or the Fenician white grape Inzolia Seeing is believing.
All my tours can be customized according to your needs, feel free to ask me anything you want.
I look forward to meeting you and to showing you the treasures of my town and my island.
See you in Palermo!!

A Recent Review of this guide

Giorgio was great! On time and communicated extremely well the few days and day prior to our tour. We were picked up on time. Very informative about the history, people and culture of palermo and great food!! We were a family of 4 , with two children 9 and 11 - and he found good and fun food for all of us to try. We were on a shore excursion from a cruise and it was great to be in a small tour walking the small streets and food market. Glad we were not with a cruise tour with many people.
