Palermo Walking Tour and Street Food

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Free Cancellation up to 24 hours in advance
Low Price GuaranteeNo Booking Fees
Discover the signature street food dishes of Palermo, the Sicilian capital, on a walking tour led by a foodie guide—a must for anyone who’s serious about Italian cuisine. Taste a range of dishes from local vendors who would be difficult to stumble on independently. While you eat, learn more about Italy’s complex history and the reason its food varies so much by region.
  • 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.

Fabrizio our guide took us through the streets of Palermo to discover history from buildings to historical Sicilian carriages to marionettes, markets and of course the delicious cuisine. Treat yourselves and we are sure you will enjoy this tour as much as we did.

We had spent a great day with Fabrizio on the Mercato del Capo. He made the tour very interesting and entertaining, both culinary and cultural. A unique experience that we can unreservedly recommend to others.

We were a family of three travelling with a six year old. We booked the tour at the absolute last minute and Fabrizio was super patient and waited for us when we raced to meet him. The tour was really informative, not only about food but about the history and culture of Palermo.

I had a quick 36-hour visit to Palermo and this was the BEST way to experience the city. Fabrizio was knowledgeable, passionate and a perfect local to teach one about the local fare while covering all of the major historical sites along the way. I loved the tour and am still

We had a lovely street food tour in Palermo with Fabrizio. It was very informative, fun and full of local charm and humour. Definitely would recommend for families with teens ( our kids 12 and 16). Thank you .
