During the tour of the Capo market, you will taste some fried excellences of the city such as, “arancine”, “panelle” and potato and mint croquettes.

The tastings take place at street vendors and popular fryers. The experience continues along the old tannery before arriving at the Vucciria market, where travelers can share a glass of dessert wine and an aperitif with the locals. Don't miss the traditional “pani ca'meusa” (bread with veal spleen and lung) before a sweet final triumph (“cannolo” in winter, ice cream in summer).
