About
The Sicilian pastries and ice cream are among the best in Italy, and what about the coffee, the real element of Italian culture. But how can you disentangle yourself from the huge range of bars and pastry shops that populate the city of Palermo? We have developed a process that allows for true gourmands to taste the best examples of pastry, from Sfincetta with ricotta to Setteveli cake, gelato, made with authentic raw materials without the use of industrial ingredients, and the best coffee at both the bar and coffee shop where we can take a close look at the roasting and selection of coffee that make up the blends. All of this of course, in addition to satisfying the palate and the mind thanks to the information given by the guide, will be surrounded by the beauty of Palermo’s monuments which will be introduced and explained by the guide along the way. There are about seven tastings: three pastries, an gelato, typical biscuits, a dessert wine and a coffee.

Nice tour
We are really experienced food tour participants. All around the world.
In Palermo I wanted to dive into pasticceria, gelato and coffee.
Our guide Giorgio was on time , perfectly organized, everything fine.
He knew, what he was talking about, was really friendly, knowledgeable and very nice to be around. The hours we spent with him were really enjoyable.
We started with an award winning cake, had cannoli at a well known pasticceria, sweet Marsala Wine at a famous tavern, dolci at a monastery (my favorite location, being a real insider tip) and coffee at a roastery. The gelateria we wanted to visit was closed on that day, but opening times in Palermo are really special….
So it was a nice morning, thanks to Giorgio. A real recommendation especially if you are not that experienced in food tours and local specialities.
My suggestion for an improvement (just a personal opinion) would be to trade the first stop to a coffee with a brioche with gelato instead of the cake. More Sicilian and coffee is always a good start.
But we were happy and it’s worth 5 stars anyway.
And for dinner, Giorgio organized a restaurant table for us, that was really going the extra mile.
Thank you so much !
