During the day the place is quite deserted and there sin't much to see. It gets better at night as you can order food and sit down enjoying a beer. Sometimes they play music too.

The Vucciria is one of the backbone markets of Palermo. It's a little smaller than Capo and Ballaro but maybe the oldest? It has the famous Spleen Sandwich guy & Taverna Azzurra so what's not to like! Full of characters so go check it out!

We have visited Balaro market a few years ago, in a daylight, full of people and colours, and we thought it's the best local happening we've seen. This year on our first night out we bumped into that crazy Vucciria market. And wow!!! This is...More

Perhaps years ago this may have been a bustling market used by local people to decide what they will be eating that day. We walked through and saw a handful of sellers (half of which barely spoke Italian anyway) and it felt like a bit...More
