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).
I am a young fifty years old tourist guide, a lover of his city and especially of his food. To know Palermo and Palermo you need to know what they eat and how they eat. And to do this you need to know the historical markets of Palermo, where all the positive and negative aspects of this city come together. I love traveling and reading yellow books, the music of the 70s and 80s. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
