The Liberty Bell. Independence Hall. We all know Philadelphia for its famous landmarks and historical background, but did you also know that it's home to the country’s oldest and largest everyday open-air market? Join this Italian Market tour in Philadelphia for a dose of yummy Philly food at its very best.

Starting in South Street, head off with your local guide through the neighborhood of Bella Vista in South Philly. You’ll explore the tiny streets and some of the iconic mosaic art from a local artist. Then, swing by a historic deli, duck into a tempting bakery, and stroll along Christian Street before arriving at the famous Italian market or, more accurately, the South 9th Street Curb Market. Explore the huge variety of stores located here, many of which are Italian in heritage. Along the way, you'll get the chance to talk to some of the owners and employees of these shops and stalls, and hear fascinating local stories of the development of this area over the years. Your tour concludes in the heart of the Italian Market ,where Rocky ran through the streets on one of his famous training runs!

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.
