What is the goal of our Palermo Street Food Tour?
Our goal is to offer much more than just tourist food tours! The tastings, the food and wine related information, our Streaty guides provide historical hints, discuss social and controversial issues and also facilitate the interaction between the travellers and the locals.
Don’t think that our Palermo street food tour is just a walk for foodies: yes, it’s also true, you will taste everything about the greasy, salty and tasty Sicilian street food (you’ll love it!) but we will also have time to discuss with us about the city, without too much effort. Our purpose is just to make you feel happy… and full, of course!
We can do all of this thanks to our small group policy which allows the guides to quickly and easily set the right group spirit. On Streaty’s Palermo street food walking tours you will never find yourself chasing a guide holding a numbered flag and whispering to a mic. We do not sell visits, we offer new authentic travel experience!
What are the features of Streaty’s Palermo Food Tours?
We are able to offer three different types of Palermo Street Food Tour with different features, of course. So, if you are already hungry in the morning, let’s join the Morning Tour!
Instead, if you want to make this experience enjoying the city’s movida, book the Night Tour and you will be able to taste the delicacies under the moonlight. Are you a wine lover? Don’t worry, we thought also for you: find out about the Wine Tour and get ready to taste the best wines in Palermo.
Palermo food tour in the morning
The Morning Street Food Palermo Tour take travellers around the intricate alleys of the local markets of Capo and Vucciria, giving them the chance to taste real food in real authentic places, street food stalls, old inns and family-run bakeries. All Palermo street food tour places have been carefully selected based on the quality of the food and the genuinity of the location.
The traditional street food of Palermo consists of fried and baked snacks normally consumed standing around street food stalls and small deli shops. Most of the food satisfies all palates and it’s suitable to vegetarian foodies.
However, some specialty offered on Streaty street food tour in Palermo can be considered quite challenging, such as the famous “pani ca’meusa” (veal offal sandwich) or the “stigghiole” (veal intestine on bbq).
Wine Palermo Street Food Tour
Why joining a Food and Wine Tour in Palermo? Well, we believe that cuisine can tell a lot about local history, habits and culture as much as a monument does. We use food as a lens to draw together the sense of a city.
Street Food Tour Palermo in the night
We also run Palermo Street Food and Wine Night Tours in order to show travellers another vest of the city. Night tours unveil the nightlife scene and include a selection of food specialties available only under the moonlight.
The Palermo night tours explore the old port of La Cala, the nightlife district of La Vucciria and some other major historical attraction.
Our Palermo sailing sunset food tour offer travellers the opportunity to admire the city from another memorable perspective while tasting traditional delis and sipping prosecco wine!
What will you visit during the Street Food Tour in Palermo?
We travel to experience new things, to see new places, to meet new people, to share new vibes. So we travel to learn, and trust us, there is a lot to learn in Palermo!
You can explore and eat Palermo on your own, but how do you find your way to the best restaurants and street food stalls? Tripadvisor is not an option since its ranking is mainly based on tourists’ reviews. You will probably find yourself eating soggy arancini in a comfy touristy spot. You don’t want this! You are a foodie, a traveller, you want to follow the locals’ path. Just join a street food tour in Palermo! And you know why you should do that? Because a food tour isn’t simply about eating food.
The real extra value is given by one person: your local guide. Streaty guides make the magic happen by giving sense to your food market experience and your tasting moments. Local guides know their stuff, much more than foreign bloggers or guidebooks do. Your local guide was born and raised in those streets, He grew up eating those foods and He knows how to cook them because he saw his mum doing it for years.
And the most important thing, my friend, a local guide is real! You can interact with him, you can whatever you want: ask for clarifications and tips to improve your recipes, you can share a smile, vibes and feel the richness of Palermitan culture through his eyes. A Palermo street food tour is an experience, not a meal.
Last but not least…your Streaty guide does not vanish in the void after a tour! You can get in touch with us anytime you need it.
