Massimo Theater , Piazza Verdi, 90138 Palermo PA, Italy

Main gate of Teatro Massimo Opera house in piazza Verdi. Your guide will be carrying a red bag with Streaty logo printed on.

Piazza San Domenico , Piazza S. Domenico, 90133 Palermo PA, Italy

Tour ends in piazza San Domenico or in piazza Fonderia (both point are at walking distance from the cruise port)

Meet your guide in Piazza Verdi, near the iconic Teatro Massimo opera house. It’s the largest in Italy, and was in a pivotal scene in The Godfather: Part III. Get your Palermo ‘foodie’s passport,’ which you’ll get stamped at every tasting point along the tour.

Street food is cooked and served at street stalls, modest bakeries and old bars. This street food tour has been designed to show Palermo with no filters of any kind.

Begin making your way to the Vucciria Market and Mercato di Capo, two busy and colorful outdoor markets in Palermo. Listen as your guide offers insights into how Sicily’s unique culinary history informs its street food scene while vendors of local produce and seafood promote their goods. The Church of the Immaculate Conception is nearby, which you can visit if you like (own expense).

Get in line at neighborhood bakeries, cafes and street food stalls to try a variety of famous Sicilian street snacks. Munch on chickpea fritters called panelle and deep-fried balls of rice stuffed with meat, vegetables and cheese called arancine as you collect stamps in your foodie passport.

Sip on a sweet Sicilian wine to wash down your fried treats, and then head for a seasonal dessert. You may indulge in Sicily’s famous cannoli (deep-fried pastry cylinders filled with sweetened ricotta cheese), some gelato or a refreshing granita (a fruity slushy).

Please Note: If you have any dietary restrictions, including food allergies, please make a note in the ‘special requirements’ field when you check out. Substitutions may be possible with advance notice.

We met up with Rafa and a small group for this street tour and it was an amazing way to see Palermo. Not only did she introduce us to some amazing food and markets, but she also gave us a good amount of historical information. If you are a foodie (and even if you are not), I recommend this tour. We were a group of five that ranged in age from 11-68!

The Street Food Walking Tour in Palermo was worth every penny, plus some! Rafaela was an amazing guide - she was a real local, she knew everyone, and set us up with a truly unique experience. We saw the real local markets with an insider's view and tasted some delicious treats. You will not walk away hungry from this tour, but you will have a ton of interesting knowledge, tastes and information. 100% recommend
