The Palermo morning food tour is a relaxing 3hr walking tour with a young local guide to enjoy the markets and monuments of Palermo city center and taste the best local street food. The tour has been designed for curious travelers and adventurous foodies who want to learn about the local culture without any touristy filter.
The Palermo street food tour explores the local markets of Capo and Vucciria and its secret gems. You will have the chance to try the most authentic street food specialties and learn about their history and recipes, such as the arancina (meat rice ball), the sfincione (tomato sauce focaccia), the vegetarian panelle and cazzilli fritters, the challenging pani ca’ meusa (veal offal roll), the famous cannoli with ricotta cream or the huge broscia col gelato (ice cream sandwich) and some extra daily treat! Along the morning food tour of Palermo you will also enter an old inn where to sip a glass of good wine or a refreshing beer, snack some fresh products and have a cheerful toast with the locals. Indeed, meeting the Palermitans is an important part of the experience, We want you to enjoy the city as a local not simply as a visitor!
At the beginning of the tour all participants will receive their personal Streaty Palermo Food Passport which lists all the tasty specialties offered along the walk and also includes a Palermo street food tour map.
The Palermo morning tour starts from the central Teatro Massimo and ends in piazza San Domenico or nearby piazza Fonderia, only 15 minute walk distance to the port. All Streaty food guides are local and keep a laid-back attitude with the travellers making them feel comfortable as they were visiting the city with a local friend. On this tour we hosted Rick Stein (BBC2), Paul Hollywood (City Bakes) and Rick Steves’ crew. Wanna know more about street food in Palermo? read this!
