Why Do You Need Audio Guides For Your Visit To Palermo?

Many of the attractions that you might hope to see offer very little in explanation or information for English speakers. It is a rarity to find English speaking tour guides through many of Palermo’s most favored attractions. You can hire professional and private tour guides for the city, but these can get very expensive. In fact, many of these services average 250€ for just an hour, and you are restricted to availability and scheduling.

Audio guides, on the other hand, give you all the information that you want in shorter bursts to allow you to experience more of the great city. Outside attractions such as Piazza Pretoria and Four Corners have little to no written information, so it is difficult for non-native speakers to understand the monuments.

Travel guide books only touch over Palermo and do not go into great detail, as there is so much to cover throughout Sicily. You will get all of the detail and nuance of Palermo with audio guides.

Don Tano Bongiorno

Semi-official tour guide and host to the amazing city of Palermo.

Good day to you all! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Don Tano Bongiorno, and I wear many hats as the creator, author and pseudo-official travel guide behind wearepalermo.com

Ciao! Hope you are doing as well as I am. I am Don Tano Bongiorno and I have regaled myself as a semi-official host and active guide for tourists wanting to experience Palermo through this site. We are one of the most visited resources for the city, and all of Sicily, the world over. If you are like most of the visitors to Sicily, you are already a travel guide reader for We Are Palermo. You might also know from your reading that this city is not as organized as other major Italian cities. Here we are not as prone to have trained staff to help non-Italian speaking tourists better understand and appreciate our attractions. You can appreciate the need for audio guides, so I shouldn’t have to keep preaching to you about why they are a wise choice. Scroll down a bit and nab a copy for yourself.

Conversely, you might be new to the site (shame on you) and you don’t know the city well (because you’ve yet to read my expertly crafted travel guides), so I have to warn you about a few things. Palermo is easily the most beautiful city in all of Europe and has one of the deepest historical veins in the entire world. Unfortunately, this beauty is often difficult to navigate without assistance. The city itself is often a lot more chaos than it is spacious and accommodating, so you have to be organized beforehand to get the most out of your visit.

“Don Tano really gave me the chance to understand the city even though I’m not a native English speaker. The audio guides are simple and perfectly understandable. Hopefully Don Tano will speak Spanish soon.”

Lara (Madrid, Spain), 32 Years Old

Too often I see tourists confused before the monuments here hoping that someone can explain the significance to them. Fortunately, now with audio guides there are fewer that I encounter, but if you do not want to be a part of the confusion, get yourself the best solution with audio guides. I have personally created the walking tours and recorded my voice explaining the monuments along with some interesting stories tailored to details that were previously only known by the locals. I put a lot of time and effort into each recording, with a specific aim of helping you better understand the city and not struggle to make sense of it all.

Audio guides are like walking around with a friend who has known and loved this city his entire life and showing you all of the things that you should see while you are here, rather than glancing over the top attractions and leaving you wanting more. You will not replicate the experience you can get from my audio guides. To help you make a decision (if you have not already), here is a sample you can download and listen to for a feeling of how the rest of the guides sound and feel.

Arrivederci, Don Tano
