    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.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback! Greatly appreciated from Angelo and all the Streaty staff! Unfortunately many tourists make jokes about Mafia (same as wearing Godfather's tshirts) which we find very disrespectful, especially for all the Sicilians who lost their life in fighting it. Thank you for pointing this out! we hope to eat the streets with you again soon! Marco

    Many thanks Angelo for a brilliant start to our stay in Palermo. The markets were colourful, bright & chaotic and the street food was delicious - maybe not the Pani ca Meusa! And made more interesting by your narration. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

    We met Naida right outside the Teatro Massimo. We had just finished the Teatro tour and were a few minutes behind but she waited for us. The first stop was the classic food market just a few blocks away what we had the arancini and  chickpea fritters. The remainder of the tour
