Highlights
Foodie walking tour: Explore Palermo via your taste buds
Small-group tour (maximum 12): Ensures a personal experience
Skip the tourist traps and visit authentic local vendors
Taste 5 typical Sicilian street foods and 1 local wine
What to expect
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). From June-September, the tour lasts 3 hours and finishes at Piazza San Domenico. From October-May, the tour is extended to 4 hours and includes visits the Quattro Canti with its Baroque architecture, Piazza Pretoria and its impressive fountain and the Ballarò Market. This tour finishes at the Palermo Cathedral. 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.

Street food tour with Streaty is a must do in Palermo.
Getting to see the kitchen where the best arancini is made was awesome. Some of our group were even asked to do ourselves the buying of some olives & cheese in the wet market. And learning some history while we hop from one place to another is a plus point. Our local guide Angelo, funny, informative and very proud of his roots did really an amazing job.

Friendly , fun , & tasty
The guide Marco had a very warm welcoming disposition which allowed an environment for strangers to become very friendly. He was helpful in providing recommendations for wine and restaurants. Book this tour early within your stay so that you can have an idea of the neighborhood.

We have traveled numerous times to Italy but we’re not finding good cuisine in Palermo despite all the reviews from trip advisor . Marco brought us to authentic and local places in which the food was delicious . Since he was raised in Palermo, he was able to share many interesting stories of the past. We enjoyed the tour very much and highly recommend. Marco will give you tips in Palermo and what tourist traps to avoid.

Highlight of Sicily
The morning Streaty tour was the highlight of our trip to Sicily. Marco was an extremely knowledgeable and charismatic host and guided us through places you wouldn’t have visited otherwise. Palermo is a historic and vibrant city which you get to see through a special ‘foodie’ lense. It’s understandable why this tour is so highly regarded! We would recommend it to anyone visiting Sicily. Grazie per tutti, Marco!

Absolute must for ANY foodie!
Marco our guide was great, he was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the amazing food Palermo has to offer. The tour winds its way through the street maze of Palermo & its markets and stops for frequent street food snacks.
The food is absolutely outstanding (a couple test your resilience but everything is best to try)
On top of the food and market you get a guided walk and talk of the famous sites of Palermo & Marco is full of great tips so be sure to do this tour at the beginning of your trip. You won’t be disappointed just happy with a full belly!! Thanks Marco!

Culinary highlight
We went on an evening street food tour with Salvo who guided us through various palermitan delicacies. He is very open, talkative and entertaining, his knowledge of street food, culture and history of Palermo and Sicily is astonishing. This is an awesome way to get to know Palermo!

Great intro to street food
Salvo was an informative and engaging guide. He made sure to make everyone feel included. As a solo traveler, I was especially appreciative of that. All the bites were amazing. Good explanation of local traditions. Would definitely recommend.

Best way to experience Palermo
Our guide, Angelo, was amazing! He was very passionate about Palermo and it’s street food tradition and it showed. He made us laugh the entire time and provided a good variety of experiences with types of food/drink and establishments. Would definitely recommend as the local foods are some of the best ways to experience the city.
