Palermo Walking Tour and Street Food

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy and taste the street food in the old markets of Palermo observing people, products, colors and characters from another time. The smells and the flavors will accompany you during three unforgettable hours.
  • Discover Sicilian cuisine and culture on a walking food tour of Palermo
  • Tour three typical Palermo markets, sampling street food as you go
  • Taste traditional Italian foods, ranging from arancini to cannoli
  • Sip included water, or a glass of wine, beer, or Coca-Cola
What to Expect
Greet your guide in the heart of the Old Town—or, if you’re on a cruise ship, enjoy pickup from near the port—for your street food and market walking tour. Discover three separate markets: Capo Market (Mercato di Capo), Ballaro Street Market (Mercato Ballarò), and La Vucciria—in some of the oldest areas of Palermo.
As you wander, learning about food as you go, sample Palermo specialties with the city’s signature rustic flavors. Try sfincione (Sicily’s answer to pizza), panelli (chickpea fritters), crocchè (potato croquettes), arancini (stuffed rice balls), caponata (an eggplant dish), and cannolo (a ricotta-filled pastry). Along the way you have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine, beer, water or Coca-Cola.
Your tour finishes in central Palermo, not far from La Vucciria market.
