Tour description

A three-hour relaxing street food walking tour around Palermo led by a young passionate local guide. Take a journey through the scents and flavours of Capo and Vucciria markets and explore their backstreets where real Palermitan soul resides. See some of the top attractions along the way like Teatro Massimo and Piazza San Domenico. Taste the best selection of daily street foods, such as ‘arancine’ (stuffed rice balls) and ‘panelle’ (chickpea fritters), as well as a local wine and seasonal dessert (cannoli or ice cream) but also some challenging sample like the renowned "pani ca' meusa" (veal offal sandwich). This tour is limited to 12 participants, ensuring you an open interaction with the tour guide, the local vendors and the other travelers. It's a tourist-trap free experience designed for real foodies! We are the most experienced food tour company in Sicily. We hosted Rick Stein, Paul Hollywood and many other food celebrities!
