What to expect

This is the first street food tour ever launched in Sicily. A relaxing 3hr walk with a young licensed guide to enjoying the markets and monuments of Palermo city center and taste the best local street food. Streaty tour has been designed with the specific purpose of giving foodies and travelers the chance to live a 100% Sicilian Experience…a tasty one! The uniqueness of Palermitan street food doesn’t simply lie in its variety and rich flavors, but also in the ability that every dish has to tell a historical chapter of the Sicilian capital.

Vendors have been carefully selected based on the quality of food and the authenticity of the location. Our summer tour goes through that tricky part of the city center where travelers need the help of a local expert to enjoy and understand better the Palermitan culture. Capo market gets a different dress if you see it with the eyes of a local. Vucciria market might simply look the ruin of an old elegant city center…unless you experience it with a real local. This is also the ideal shore excursion for cruisers spending few hours in town: We give cruisers the chance to maximize the time of the short stay and catch the real soul of Palermo in few steps and few bites.

Summertime mode also means Cannoli off, Ice cream on. Even though most of the tour companies offer tourists cannoli dessert all year round because this is what tourists want, Streaty doesn’t. You must know that cannoli is a winter dessert and that locals in summertime prefer a fresh "Broscia" col gelato (ice cream sandwich), this is the last sweet treat of our summer tour. All foodies joining this tour will be granted their personal Food Passport!
