Full description
A walk through the center of Palermo is like visiting an open-air museum, where you’ll experience a range of different architectural styles. During the 3-hour walk you’ll see the Capo street markets that is a true mix of culture, customs, and food traditions, the Cathedral, the Quattro Canti and Piazza della Vergogna. The walk will also provide an opportunity to taste some specialties of Palermo. Some of the particular tastes of street food you might enjoy include sfincione (dough topped with onion, bread crumbs, tomato, and oregano), panelle (fried chickpea flour), crocché (potato croquettes), arancine (rice croquettes stuffed with meat or butter), and cannolo (crunchy shell with sweet-cheese). If you want you can ask to taste the bread with “meusa” (bread with spleen). You can ask also availability of tour in Italian language.

We used Getyourguide's tour with Fabrizio as our guide. He is an excellent guide - interactive, funny, intelligent, informative and knowledgable. His sense of humor had us in splits of laughter! He encouraged questions and went out of his way to give us detailed history on Palermo. Highly recommend Getyourguide as a professional company and Fabrizio as a guide.

Fabrizio was an excellent guide as he shepherded our small group, pointing out interesting sites and information. The main focus of the walk was Copa market, but I also enjoyed seeing the location of the traditional puppet theatre and workshop as well as Palermo Cathedral. Fabrizio had a great sense of humor as well and was very entertaining as he explained Palermo traditions and various Sicilian customs. The market was fascinating and the street food delicious.
