What you'll do
If you want to taste the authentic Sicilian street food and catch the real soul of Palermo, this is the right choice! I and my friends will take you around the backstreets and markets of Palermo to give you the opportunity to enjoy the best local street food. We will stop at some carefully selected food stalls, modest bakeries and old inns to sample traditional street food and sip some "limited edition" wine ;-) Please be aware that this is not a gourmet tour, but a street food tour! Palermitan street food is renowned for being various but also challenging...so stretch your belly! Not only food: during the tour we will also discuss other topics like history, arts, traditions and social issues (eg.mafia). We will also share with you the best tips to enjoy the rest of your stay like a real local. MORNING TOUR (all year round) explores the local markets of Capo and Vucciria and its secret gems. EVENING TOUR (May-Oct) takes travellers around the intricate alleys of the modern port La Cala and the busy nightlife area of La Vucciria. This tour gives foodies the chance to try some unique night-time bites not available in the morning. NB: the tour takes place rain or shine. Group tour language: English only. Private tours available also in Italian, Spanish, French, Arabic. IF YOU DON'T FIND THE DATE AVAILABLE ON AIRBNB, find us on the web: STREATY.COM :)
Hi! We are a group of Palermitan guides with an obsession for food&wine! I (Marco) and my friends Salvo, Angelo, Raffa, Naida, Sergio, Ale, Laura and Simona are the pioneers of street food tours in Sicily. Come with us if you want to feel the real street spirit of Palermo. We don't see you as a client but as a friend! We keep a laid-back attitude with travellers, we share tips, facts and personal stories. We want you to know real Palermo without any touristy filters. You don't know what food tour to book? We give you a tip: if hosts offer you cannoli in summertime, skip it! Cannoli is a seasonal winter dessert and in summertime are made for tourists only! Unlike other hosts, we are licensed guides, we operate in compliance with the Italian tourist law and we happily pay taxes ;) We also operate under our own local brand called Streaty.
At least 5 different street foods (eg. arancini, chickpea fritters, spleen sandwich, sfincione pizza, potato croquette and…
TWO DRINKS: one glass of beer at first stop and one glass of wine or beer in an old inn along the itinerary.
We grant all participants joining the morning tour with a personal Food Passport!
