Happy to meet you!
LILIPAN is Lisa, Livia, Paola and Anna, licensed guides who have been professionally engaged in tourism, hospitality and travel organization for years, working with individual and small-group clients that come to them from Italian and international backgrounds.
Friendship and a shared affinity for artistic, archaeological, historical and botanical interests are what brought Lilipan's founders together and are the ingredients that have given magic to their travels, leading them to explore, in-depth, the nuances of history interwoven with beauty, character, curiosities, traditions and superb food and wines, Jewish historical and artistic perspectives, everywhere that they have gone.
Lilipan has continually been on "scouting" missions since its founders met in 2000, not only because they love to do it, but because they believe that it's impossible to genuinely share something with others without personally knowing and deeply appreciating it, whether it be a place, a work of art, a meal or a glass of wine. Lilipan decided to bring this travel philosophy to life in a new way by making their wealth of knowledge and their professional skills available to discerning travelers looking for unique, fascinating and unforgettable itineraries. Lilipan specializes in highly personalized, exclusive travel experiences created with thoughtful attention given to every last detail.

Volcanoes and Greek temples, Arab gardens and sparkling golden mosaics, turquoise sea and precious princely palaces, salt flats and windmills, the light and the scent of flowers ... Sicily is a geography of the soul, a land of divine grace and beauty.
Sicily is one of the most attractive islands in the Mediterranean Sea and has been a hub of migration routes for millennia. Jews are thought to have settled there at least as early as the 1st century, after the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD.
In my long experience as a Tour Guide in Florence, I have noticed that many American and European Jews are used to visit the Jewish part of town whenever they travel abroad. Whether is Rome or Paris or Budapest, they go to synagogues, they seek out local Jews, they frequently make a donation.
For centuries, the massive marble quarries above the Tuscan town of Carrara have yielded the raw material for the polished masterpieces of the great Classical sculptors, not to mention the great Italian Masters like Michelangelo, Canova and Bernini
In Piedmont there is no sea, or, at least, it has not been there for 5 million years, and yet, a marine fish, anchovy, is often present in the Piedmontese cookbook, indeed it is an essential ingredient of the iconic dish, a symbol same of Piedmont: the bagna càuda.
