Whether street food is your passion, or in fact you have no idea what it is, don't miss the chance to try the Street Food Tour of Palermo: a treat for all 5 senses.

Your guide will take you around the historic markets of Palermo, the "Mercato Del Capo" and the "Mercato di Ballarò", where, amongst the banter of the vendors and the city folklore, you will taste the authentic Palermo street food, such as bread with spleen "pane con la meusa" and bread with chickpea "panelle" and croquettes, "crocchè". The "panelle" is a local culinary speciality popular in Sicily and difficult to find beyond Palermo: fritters of chickpea flour deep-fried and sandwiched in bread.

You will continue your tasting with the "rascatura" and the much-celebrated "sfincione" (well-risen pizza bread garnished with tomato, olive oil, onion and anchovies).
Obviously your gastronomic tour can't be without the traditional Sicilian "arancine" with ragu or butter.

For the more adventurous eaters amongst you, you can also try the quite particular Palermitan specialities of "frittola" (pig fat), "musso" (cartilage of the snout of the cow) and "quarume" (delicious boiled cow offal).

And then something sweet! You will taste the ricotta "cannolo" and, to finish, an espresso coffee in a bar in the city centre.

Some of the monuments you will get to see along the guided tour include: the "Teatro Massimo", the Church of the Immaculate Conception and Piazza Pretoria.
