Join this walking tour in Palermo's historical city center to learn about the Mafia and the civil antimafia movement. Discover a city that is finally rebelling against the Mafia’s protection racket.
The Teatro Massimo, the open-air market "Il Capo", Piazza della Memoria (Memorial dedicated to prosecutors and judges killed by the Mafia), Piazza Beati Paoli, the Cathedral, the City Hall, Piazza Magione: every stop is a cause for reflection, a chance to mull over the realities of the Mafia and consider the civic movement against Mafioso power.
Along the tour you will meet shopkeepers who have said NO to paying the pizzo, who have subscribed to the ethical consumer campaign ‘Pago chi non paga’ (I pay who does not pay). This campaign is promoted by Addiopizzo to support those that have decided to rebel against the Mafia.
The tour ends at Antica Focacceria San Francesco, a historical restaurant which specialises in typical Street Food from Palermo. The owners are among those who courageously denounced their extortionists. Lunch is not included but if you decide to stay you can taste some specialties, like famous "arancine", "panelle" and also "cannoli"!
