Highlights
  • Discover Sicilian cuisine and culture on a walking food tour of Palermo
  • Tour typical Palermo markets, sampling street food as you go
  • Taste traditional Italian foods, ranging from arancini to cannoli

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 varous markets such as Capo Market (Mercato di Capo), 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 treats like 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.
