This is one of the most original and successful tours that we do. It tells the story of the Florio family saga. We will follow the sequence of events over 4 generations - from the arrival in Palermo of Paolo and the first Ignazio, to the social rise of Vincenzo and Ignazio sr, and eventually to the last period, notable for the theatrical presence of Ignazio jr and Donna Franca. The latter may have been responsible for the family’s fall from grace, but they also helped spread the myth of the Florio family as a jet-setting superpower of the time.  During the tour, I’ll take the role of Donna Franca, and will be supported by my devoted husband, Ignazio. Through their voices we will relive the Belle époque splendours of a glitzy Palermo, capital of culture and sophisticated society, and destination of the filthy rich and international royalty. We will reach their intimate residence at the Olivuzza and get to know one of the most envied couples of Italy. Unmissable!
