A unique experience lived with Danila! Me and the 'women' of my family, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, were in Palermo last week for three days. We were lucky enough to meet Danila, by far the... best guide in Palermo! It was she who, accompanying us to discover this city, made us fall in love with it! Danila is Palermo! He loves his work and transmits his passion for his land to his customers (who immediately become friends)! Very well prepared, very cultured and really super informed about everything, she guided us for two tours that allowed us to discover a city that was sometimes even unedited. Secret corners, legends related to characters (laMonachella), hidden passages, narrow streets full of charm ..... this was Palermo thanks to her. So see you next time ... we have named you Super Guide of the Year!read more

Danila is a southern woman, proud and proud. She is a true Sicilian, with a deep love for her land. When she talks about Palermo and its historical beauties, her eyes light up. And that warm and deep... light also invests and radiates all of us. He has a background that goes beyond mere notions and involves you from the very beginning with his learned and passionate talkative. His detailed tales of the shining mosaics of Monreale and the Palatine Chapel will remain etched in our memory for a long time. Never banal and always with a smile, Danila delights us with her stories and suddenly we feel like we are in a popular novel. In which Normans, Saracens, Spaniards and French live and follow one another and the heroes fight to defend a very warm and dignified people. The city is already a jewel of its own, a real treasure chest full of treasures accumulated over the centuries, but living it with Danila is a truly engaging and all-encompassing experience!

Danila è una donna del sud, fiera ed orgogliosa. È una siciliana vera, con un profondo amore per la sua terra. Quando parla di Palermo e delle sue bellezze storiche le si illuminano gli occhi. E... quella luce calda e profonda investe ed irraggia anche tutti noi. Ha una preparazione che va oltre il mero nozionismo e ti coinvolge sin dall’inizio con la sua loquela dotta e appassionata. I suoi racconti dettagliati dei mosaici splendenti di Monreale e della Cappella Palatina resteranno impressi a lungo nella nostra memoria. Mai banale e sempre col sorriso Danila ci delizia con le sue storie e ci pare d’un tratto di essere dentro ad un romanzo popolare. In cui vivono e si susseguono normanni, saraceni, spagnoli e francesi e gli eroi combattono per difendere un popolo molto caloroso e dignitoso. La città è già un gioiello di suo, un vero scrigno pieno di tesori accumulatisi nei secoli, ma viverla con Danila è un’esperienza davvero coinvolgente e totalizzante!

Palermo is a stupendous city and owes its splendor also to the peoples who passed through these lands in ancient times. Therefore, if you want to appreciate this city, from all points of view, you... must visit it accompanied by a good guide. We were lucky enough to meet Danila and we were very satisfied with the tour she offered us. Of course, in 4 hours you can't see everything, but thanks to his professionalism and knowledge he made us immerse in the history, cuisine, taste, perfumes and styles of this city. Great experience. Thanks Danila. We recommend it.read more

Palermo è una città stupenda e deve il suo splendore anche ai popoli che nell antichita' sono passati per queste terre. Ragion percui se volete apprezzare questa città, sotto tutti i punti di vista,... bisogna visitarla accompagnati da una brava guida. Noi abbiamo avuto la fortuna di conoscere Danila e siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti del tour che ci ha proposto. Certo in 4 ore non si puo' vedere tutto, ma grazie alla sua professionalità e conoscenza ci ha fatto immergere nella storia, nella cucina, nel gusto nei profumi e negli stili di questa città. Gran bella esperienza. Grazie Danila. Noi ve la consigliamo.read more

Danila is just amazing! She deserves all the stars. In 2019 I did a guided tour with Danila and I wrote: “She is taking you into your thoughts, letting you look in the same direction and making you... look in that direction, grabbing you(r)(attention) and holding it for a while and giving it back. It is not overwhelm you but enchants you.” The way Danila takes you to see Palermo together is very special. So it invited me to come back. In October 2021 I had two tours with her. She is tireless: what energy and what empathy! Danila sympathizes with me, her guest, takes into account my taste and preferences and leaves time and place for my own wishes. Professional, competent and well informed about the ins and outs of Palermo, she conveys all her passion and love and lets you watch an discover together. With Danila you can discover places you would never find. That’s exactly the reason to take such a good guide. Thanks Danila. Hugoread more
