Our Street Food Tours!

Streaty Tours in Palermo

Palermo is worldwide renowned as a top destination for street food lovers. It is not a coincidence that Andrew Zimmerman, Rick Stein, Paul Hollywood, Anthony Bourdain and many other famous foodies flew a long way to battle our tasty streets. The uniqueness of Palermitan street food doesn’t simply lie in its variety and rich flavours, but also in the ability that every dish has to tell a historical chapter of the Sicilian capital. Streaty offers travelers the chance to discover Palermo in few steps and bites. Join the very first street food tour ever launched in Sicily! NatGeo Travel picked us to discover Palermo like a real local…are you in too?

Streaty Tours in Catania

The beauty of Catania doesn’t simply lie in its stunning baroque churches and the majestic presence of Mount Etna. This is just the surface on the top of a 2700 year old city. Catania is like a parmigiana: in each layer of lava, traces a different domination, different recipes, unique flavours. Take a time trip into the Catanese cuisine led by a Streaty guide. Going to Catania and missing a bite on the Cipollina is like going to New York and missing a selfie pic with the Statue of Liberty! Get on the Fish Market stage and be part of the show! Jamie Oliver’s magazine chose us to experience Catania, find out why!

Streaty Tours in Venice

Venice is unique, elegant, suggestive, original, romantic, rich of history and art…BUT…You must know that not all travelers enjoy their time in Venice because of the mass of tourists that literally pack the alleys. At first glance Venice seems like a soulless touristy city, at least this is the impression you might get if you go on your own…BUT… if you really want to understand what real Venice is, if you want to get off the crowded alleys to find out where Venetians go to eat and drink after work, then you have just one option, Streaty Venice!

What We Offer

 We run walking tours around the markets and monuments of the city center giving travelers the chance to taste the local street food and live a 100% Italian experience. To achieve this, we keep small groups, we stay away from tourist traps and we enrich the visit with cultural information and tips not reported by guidebooks.
We are the pioneers of street food tours in Italy and, unlike other competitors, we are fully licensed!

What’s Italian street food?

Sicilian street food consists of simple snacks cooked and served in the streets, such as Arancina (rice ball stuffed with ragù), Cipollina (baked roll with mozzarella and spring onion) and other type of pizzas and fritters. Some samples, such as the Palermitan Pani ca’meusa, contain offal! Venetian food is about delicate tapas mainly topped with fish but also cheese, vegs and cold cuts. On some lucky day you can find challenging samples, such as veal spleen or crabs!

Not only food!

Streaty itineraries are designed to offer a complete overview of local history, food and culture. As licensed guides we also provide travelers historical explanations in order to make them understand better the nude essence of our culture. Forget endless boring explanations topped with dates and numbers!  We keep a laid back and relaxed approach during the visit, sharing stories and legends not mentioned in guidebooks.

Small group policy

We want to offer travelers the “localest” experience as possible. Walking around in small groups facilitate the interaction among travelers, guides and vendors. Furthermore, we believe that certain spots shouldn’t be spoiled by mass tourism.
This is why we have a limit of 12 participants per group. ​However, larger groups can be arranged on special request. Read “Private Tour” for more information about.

Are you a real foodie but you don’t know how to prove it? With Streaty you finally can!
All travelers joining a Streaty tour receive their personal Passaporto del Mangione (Food Passport) on which, after each sample, Streaty guides affix the official branded stamp.
