Discover Palermo

Palermo’s complex history is embedded in its food – Greek, Arab and Spanish flavours intermingling -- while its tradition of street food dates back to the 18th century, when wood was rationed and few people could cook at home. Let an expert guide you through the labyrinthine markets of Capo or Vucciria to sample the city’s street food, experience its vibrant street life and discover hidden artistic and architectural treasures.
