The tour starts at Teatro Massimo. During the first part, the group is guided through the alleys of the Capo market and its fragrant stalls of fish and fruit. The guides tell the story of the market and its colorful everyday life, giving customers the chance to taste the street food of Palermo and discover all its secrets. 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).

The tastings provided to customers are exclusively seasonal. The guides can modify the itinerary and the tastings in order to offer travelers a unique experience, close to the local tradition. This street food of Palermo is also an opportunity to discover the local history and culture of the city. The guides discuss various topics during the 3 hours, offering customers a true image of the city. You will receive a souvenir of the experience -- Passaporto del Mangione (foodie passport).
