Iolanda L.

Palermo, Sicily, Italy

Ciao a tutti! My name is Iolanda and I am a licensed tour guide based in Palermo, Sicily.

I speak English and French and I have over 25 years of experience working as a tour guide.

For long time, I had the pleasure of accompanying travellers throughout Sicily, mainly to the famous archaeological sites. Now, I live and work in Palermo but I am able to move freely to various areas on the island on request. If you wish to visit Palermo or other places in Sicily, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Together we can discover some of the city's most extraordinary sights and also my city life.

Let yourself be captivated by the charm of Palermo historical quarters, the beauty and elegance of its antique buildings, the mix between Arabic and Norman styles.

Come with me and taste the delights and sounds of Palermo's historical markets like the famous Ballarò, Vucciria and il Capo, where you can still hear the echoes of its oriental past. Palermo is heaven for gourmet lovers, who can sample the local specialities such as our famous ''street food''. In fact, Palermo is truly a city of ''street food''; it's a place where the flavours of the Mediterranean mix and embrace with the colours and aromas of the orient.

My tours are tailored for individual clients as well as families and groups. You can consider me as your competent and welcoming friend who will provide you with the opportunity to become acquainted with wonderful, mysterious and fascinating Palermo. A city of a thousand faces that remains torn between eastern and western worlds.

Sicily awaits you!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a fabulous tour with Iolanda! She knows the city like the back of her hand, happy to let our itinerary unfold as we went along. She was not worried about spending a little extra time with us! It was fantastic visiting the food markets with her, she knows the best places to sample the local fare. Her French is even better than her English and her love of Palermo is infectious. I believe we gained a friend for life. We would definitely hire Iolanda again on our next trip to Palermo!
