What to expect

Inspired by the Italian bestseller 'I leoni di Sicilia' (The Florios of Sicily: A Novel), this tour gives you the opportunity to discover one of the most important Sicilian families, the Florios. The family were famous industrialists who dominated Palermo during the Belle Époque.

The tour starts on foot from the historical center to the Arenella area. You will feel like a citizen of the Belle époque thanks to the history of a great family of entrepreneurs and barons who lived in Palermo between the 18th and 20th centuries.

You'll also have the opportunity to visit the celebrated Casa Florio – Palazzina dei Quattro Pizzi to understand more about the history of the family. An English or Italian speaking tour guide will lead you along the way and will help you get the most out of the tour.
