Highly recommended. If your idea of travel is to spend all day getting pics for Instagram, keep moving. But if you are interested at all in history, culture, or if you have any interest in Sicily and Italy, this is a must. Linda is an impassioned storyteller and antimafia activist. She is fascinating and her stories are spellbinding.

An impressive bike ride through the other Palermo where the influence of the mafia can be seen and it is told how the organization Addiopizzo has started an anti-mafia movement. Worth the effort!
