What to expect

Join this Philadelphia tour to see just how eclectic this city is. From hidden alleyways to Italian markets, family-owned businesses, and public art, South Philly is a slice of the real Philly.

Begin your tour on the ever-colorful South Street. Follow your local guide through the streets of the Bella Vista neighborhood for your first glimpse of some beautiful mosaics. You’ll swing by a historic deli, duck into a tempting bakery, and marvel at the sights, smells, and sounds of the famous Italian Market. The market is the oldest and largest everyday open-air market in America and one of Philly’s must-see attractions. Wander past the myriad of local stores carrying everything from cheese, chocolate and spices to the best bakeries, butcher shops, and produce stalls. It was also here that Rocky ran through the streets on one of his famous training runs. Continue on to your last stop, Magic Gardens, which showcases the mosaic art of Isaiah Zagar. This amazing place includes a fully mosaicked indoor gallery and a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic structure.

To take your experience to the next level you can choose to have a private guide, just for you and your group! Simply select the option you prefer at checkout.
