"This was the third Eating Europe Food Tour we’ve taken and it did not disappoint! It’s clear that much care went into selecting the locations to fully represent the many culinary offerings in Palermo and Sicilian cuisine. Giusi, our guide, took pride in sharing “her” Palermo with us and in cultivating an engaging tour that was delicious and informative. We especially enjoyed learning about the history of each of the restaurants and meeting the chefs/owners who exuded pride in their establishments–something that would never happen if we were on our own. This was the perfect end to our vacation in Sicily! "

Ciao, my name is Giusi, born and raised in Palermo. After 10 years abroad, I came back to my town, following the luke of arancine!
Since I was a child, my favorite dish and comfort food is pasta with green peas. Growing up, I have improved the recipe and sometimes I propose it during formal dinners at my place
I love strolling around and getting lost in the narrow alleys, discovering new corners of my city. See you in Palermo!

I was born in the south coasts of Sicily but at the age of 8 moved to Palermo where my family was originally from. Educated in Palermo until the age of 21, then moved to England to complete higher education. In 2007 I came back to Palermo because I missed it too much and even more its food!
Maybe it’s easier to say what food I don’t like… Sicily is heaven for me who have a terrible sweet tooth… hell for my slimming diet purposes!
Try to wonder off the beaten path and you will discover the real Sicilian welcoming spirit and food! Dare with street food! Don’t ask what is it! Simply eat it and you will love its overwhelming taste!
