Streaty Palermo – Summer Tour

About this tour

This is the tour joined by Rick Stein (BBC2) and Paul Hollywood (Bake-Off) in 2017.

Streaty Palermo is the first street food tour ever launched in Sicily. A relaxing 4hr walk with a young licensed guide to enjoy the markets and monuments of Palermo city center and taste the best local street food.

Streaty Palermo has been designed with the specific purpose of giving travelers the chance to live a 100% Sicilian Experience…a tasty one!  The uniqueness of Palermitan street food doesn’t simply lie in its variety and rich flavours, but also in the ability that every dish has to tell a historical chapter of the Sicilian capital. Vendors have been carefully selected based on the quality of food and the authenticity of the location.

The summer tour goes through that tricky part of the city center where travelers need the help of a local expert to enjoy and understand better the Palermitan culture. Capo market gets a different dress if you see it with the eyes of a local. Vucciria market might simply look the ruin of an old elegant city center…unless you experience it with Streaty. This is also the ideal shore excursion for cruisers spending few hours in town: Streaty gives cruisers the chance to maximize the time of the short stay and catch the real soul of Palermo in few steps and few bites.

Summertime mode also means: Cannoli off, Ice cream on. Even though most of tour companies offer tourists cannoli dessert all year round because this is what tourists want, Streaty don’t. You must know that cannoli is a winter dessert and that locals in summertime prefer a fresh Broscia col gelato (ice cream sandwich), this is the last sweet treat of our summer tour 🙂
