What is a free walking tour?

Free tours differ from regular tours in that there is no fixed price for taking the tour, nor a mandatory fee to be paid, regardless of the quality of the tour. Instead, you are given the freedom to tip your guide according to your own discretion at the end of the tour.

When you tip your guide at the end of the tour, it is important to keep in mind that they are a professional who earns their living through their work. By rewarding them for their services, you acknowledge their expertise and hard work, and ensure that they can continue to provide exceptional tours to future visitors. The term “free” still stands for the absence of a fixed fee, but tipping is an important way to show your appreciation for the guide’s efforts.

In conclusion, the free tour concept is a win-win situation for both the traveler and the local guide. It allows everyone, irrespective of their budget, to have access to authentic local experiences. Free walking tours offer a thrilling alternative for discovering cities while also supporting enthusiastic local guides and regional tourism initiatives.

What is the most touristic city in Sicily?

While Taormina and Syracuse are certainly popular tourist destinations in Sicily, Palermo is often considered the cultural and historical heart of the island. With its rich history, vibrant markets, stunning architecture, and diverse culinary scene, Palermo offers visitors a unique and immersive experience. The city is home to numerous attractions such as the Norman Palace, the Cathedral of Palermo, and the Teatro Massimo.

Catania, on the other hand, is a bustling city with a lively nightlife and an impressive Baroque architecture, including the famous Cathedral of Saint Agatha. It is also an excellent base for exploring Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano.

Overall, each of these cities has its own charm and unique appeal to tourists, but Palermo stands out as a must-visit destination in Sicily.

What can I explore in Palermo on my own if I can't find availability for the Free Walking Tour?

Palermo is brimming with sights you can explore independently. Some, like the Teatro Massimo, offer guided tours. Others, such as the Cappella Palatina and the Palazzo Reale, provide audio guides. We recommend checking out our blog to discover how to spend a day in Palermo.
