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.

Outstanding way to experience the culinary culture of Palermo
Jun 2021
We had a great time with Salvo... very informative to understand the culture of Palermo, and the food was outstanding. We added an extra stop and got some really incredible antipasti to go with a glass of white wine.

Food and History of Palermo
We had a fabulous tour with Salvatore. It wasn’t only about the food but also about the culture and history of Palermo and Palermo’s food. We were very lucky in that, as we were a tour of only two, we were introduced to some of the lesser known local specialties such as fried veal cartilage and spleen sandwiches. We loved both! We can highly recommend Streaty and, especially, Salvatore. Don’t miss out—this is a great tour.

Fantastic, Unique Experience!
Jun 2021 • Solo
If you do only one organized activity in Palermo, let it be a walking tour with Streaty Foods! We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour with Marco, sampling incredible Sicilian staples while learning local history and uncovering gems within the Palermo streets. We experienced unique, personalized interactions with vendors at the market as well as business owners throughout the tour, and we felt truly immersed within the culture. Our black Labrador accompanied our private tour, and she even had the pleasure of tasting a few dishes! The tour was simply fantastic and the highlight of our Palermo visit. We'll certainly book another tour with Marco and look forward to returning to Palermo with family and friends. Grazie Mille, Marco & Streaty Tours!

Streaty Tours Was a Highlight of Our Trip to Sicily!
Jul 2020
Marco gave our group an AMAZING food tour of Palermo in summer of 2019. He was passionate about the food he introduced us to (and the people who made it) and so knowledgeable about the local history and architecture as well. We really felt like we got an insider's perspective on Sicily. I highly recommend Streaty Tours and the unique experience they offer, to anyone visiting Italy -- especially Sicily! Since Covid hit and they started some online experiences, I have also signed up Mama's Arancini class which was so much fun (and yummy!). I look forward to doing more in-person tours with Streaty in the future and will definitely continue participating in their online experiences. Big Thank you to Marco and his whole team for helping make our trip to Sicily extra special. (Trip Advisor doesn't have an option for a 2019 tour but that's what we did, July 2019 - so no masks were required then as Covid hadn't hit yet.)

Loved, loved, loved, this tour!
Oct 2020
There is little that I can add to all the reviews below - this was a fantastic street food and backstreet tour of Palermo. Marco is like Tina Turner - 'Simply the Best - better than all the rest!" No pressure on anyone to eat any or all of the street food - but it certainly is fun to tell your friends that you've tried spleen and lung in a roll, at least once in your life. Plenty for vegetarians to enjoy too! Added to this, you will also learn the inside secrets to the backstreets of Palermo - who knew that Santa Rosalia the Palermitan patron saint is Covid 19 saint!?? (OK - Marco didn't tell me that - but he did explain how she saved Palermo from the plague - although it took her a bit of time)

Go see the real Palermo!
Sep 2020
It was a real eye-opener and a pleasure to walk the streets of Palermo with a true local who will tell you all the things you didn't know about Sicily. He will take you by the hand and lead you through the less touristy streets where you will have a taste of some of Palermo's classical foods, some more to your taste than others but hey, that's part of the adventure!

Perfetto
This Street Food-Tour was a fantastic experience! Marco is a real foodlover who knows how to create a great group dynamic and with his knowledge he gives an authentic insight into Parlemitan market life. His enthusiastic and funny nature made it even more exciting to listen to his interesting explanations about streetfood and Palermo itself. He took us to places where the Parlemitans still cooked according to original and traditional recipes and we also got a glimpse into the kitchen. Marco managed to make me fall in love with the city a little more and for the rest of my holiday I walked through the streets of Palermo with a different view. So if you want to experience what Sfincione, Sangue, Arancina (and a lot more) taste like and especially if you want to get to know the best Gelateria of the city, then I highly recommend this tour.

Your Palermo rite of food passage
Oct 2020
This is a wildly entertaining, charming introduction to Palermo's food culture and Sicilian eating. I know where to eat, what to eat and how to eat now that our guide has taught us how not to wander the markets like a lost and intimidated puppy. You get quite a bit of history and random street knowledge with this tour, and if you dig a little, you notice that Marco, the owner, is a go-to for foreign producers and chefs needing a guide for their travel and food shows.
