Enjoy the markets and monuments of Palermo city center and taste the best local street food.
A relaxing 3hr walking tour with a young licensed guide to enjoy the markets and monuments of Palermo city center and taste the best local street food.
The Tour has been designed with the specific purpose of giving travelers the chance to live a 100% Sicilian Experience…a tasty one! The guides take travellers to their favorite street food stalls and bars, carefully selected based on the quality of food and the authenticity of the location.
The morning street food tour goes through that tricky part of the city center where travelers need the help of a local expert to enjoy and understand better the Palermitan culture. Your local guide will lead you around the alleys of Capo and Vucciria food markets, sharing recipes, stories and tips not available on guidebooks.
This street food walking tour is especially recommended as first activity in town but it’s also an ideal experience for cruisers and other travellers who need to maximize their short stay in Palermo.
The walking tour ends in piazza San Domenico, only 15 minute walk distance to the port.
