Francesca L.

Palermo, pa, Italy

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Sicily! I would like to introduce you to this wonderful and controversial land.

I've been guiding tourists to Palermo and its surroundings for over 26 years, specializing in historical as well as wine and food tours. My degree in humanities together with my passion for wines, makes my tours unique!

Among the best seller tours I offer are day trips in the Western Sicily, including Palermo, with the famous Monreale Cathedral and infamous town of Corleone. Segesta Temple and the beautiful coastal town Cefalú. Also, as a certified sommelier, I can arrange Wine and Food tours with visit to local canteens and typical Sicilian products.

All my tours are private and the itinerary can be adapted to suit your interests.
I can guide and drive you around Sicily being also a professional driver and offering a registered car service (special insurance for passengers).

Come to Sicily and you will discover an island full of history, good food, friendly people and breathtaking landscapes.

I look forward to showing my beautiful island to all of you!
