A Taste of Palermo Summer Tour

On this tour your knowledgeable guide will walk you to a variety of places including bakeries, street vendors and old inns for a comprehensive overview of Palermo and its food scene.

At the start of the tour you will receive your personal foodie passport, or Passaporto del mangione, to record your experience. Learn about the city's street food culture as well as its Arab and Jewish culinary heritage while you sample delicious treats such as potato croquettes, chickpea fritters, rice balls, soft pizza - even a spleen sandwich (depending on availability). Make your tasting official by getting your Passaporto del mangione stamped at every spot.

While making your way through Palermo you will also see the Capo and Vucciria markets. Enjoy a glass of local wine or a granita (Sicilian slush) as you walk through the alleys of Capo as well as the Vucciria markets. And no food tour would be complete without a sampling of the official Palermo street food: the one and only Brioches col gelato (ice cream sandwich)! Conclude your experience in the Piazza S. Domenico.

If you love food, this is the tour for you! Reserve your spot today to experience the sizzling Palermo street food scene and fill up your personal Passaporto del mangione.
