Street Food and/or Wine Tasting.


This tour typically lasts about 3 hours.
It begins in front of the Teatro Massimo, Palermo's Opera House. We then walk through the Capo and Ballarò, two of Palermo's historic markets, to discover most of the ingredients that are used in Sicilian cuisine. Along the way, we visit sumptuous Baroque churches, built in the wake of the Counter-Reformation, to attract believers through emotions and theatricality. You'll see how their exuberant decorations are also reflected in the colourful and sensual historic food markets of the Capo and Ballarò. Of course, sampling Palermo's best street food and wine will also be a priority!
Our exploration of Palermo's markets involves gastronomic stops to sample some of Palermo's best street food and local wine.
Art food and wine in Palermo are connected by culture, atmosphere, and history.

* This tour can be combined with the Monreale tour. Please, inquire me for a customized tour.
