Born and raised in Palermo, Francesca has been working as a licensed guide since 2014. Becoming a guide was not a casual choice. It followed years of university studies, where Francesca immersed herself in the field of Cultural Tourism, combining the Humanities, Foreign Languages and International Relations. She graduated with a Master's degree from the University of Palermo, and completed her cycle of studies in Rome, taking courses on the Valorization and Management of Natural and Cultural Resources. What she values most about her work is her role as a cultural "interpreter" (not only from the linguistic point of view) and ambassador for her city. She sees herself as a "real" Sicilian, and her passion for food proves her right. Be ready! With Francesca, no aspects of Palermo's world-famous markets and street food will remain hidden!
