Scrumptious street food bike tour
Take a big bite out of Palermo on this guided flavor adventure through the city’s markets and sightseeing spots, with the added benefit of bike rental!
With 5 street-food stops, you’ll sink your teeth into…
…arancini – deep-friend rice balls with a succulent, oozing center
…panelle – flavorsome chickpea fritters seasoned with pepper and parsley
… crocché – fried mash potato and egg breadcrumb fingers
…spleen – the legendary Palermo spleen sandwich
…sfincione – delicious deep-pan pizza
…cannoli – fried pastry tubes filled with rich ricotta
Your bicycle tour takes you first to La Cala. Once the main fishing port of Palermo, this horseshoe-shaped marina is now home to yachts and sailboats bobbing silently in the sunlight. Pedaling on to Piazza della Kalsa, discover stunning stone churches in this ancient part of the city. Bike around Ballarò and soak up the sights and smells of this vibrant, authentic Sicilian marketplace. Cycle past stalls towered with fresh produce and get a flavor of life as a local in Palermo.
Porta Nuova is just nearby, Palermo’s magisterial city gates. Take in the scale of this magnificent icon of the city before your day tour continues on to Capo, characterized by its classic street food stands. Pedal on to Piazza degli Aragonesi and Quattro Canti. The ‘Four Corners of Palermo’ is the nickname given to this point which, back in the 18th Century, formed the intersection of Albergheria, Capo, Kalso, and Vucciria – Palermo’s four ancient districts.
