Palermo, Sicily

Italy is normally a slow-food, sit-and-eat kind of country, so VirtualTourist was surprised by the variety of street food in Palermo, the capital of the island of Sicily. Fried food finds include arancini (rice balls stuffed with meat sauce and cheese), crocche (potato balls), panelle (chick pea fritters), and cardoni (stalks of cardoon, aka. artichoke thistle). And of course, they do a mean Sicilan pizza.

Had a great time with Giulana and walking the streets of Palermo tasting what the locals had to offer. He took us to places that were off the beaten path that were unique to the city. He has a passion for his hometown and the food. Giuliana was extremely friendly and was great with the people. If you are looking for something cool and you love food, Giuliana's Food on Foot tour is the way to go!

This is a must do experience on your trip to Palermo! Marialuisa absolutely knows his stuff and the food we sampled was nothing short of sublime. Best of all, their was a question and answer session where Marialuisa recommended where to eat for the rest of the stay depending on what food you liked. We followed through on some of those recommendations and were not disappointed. Do this tour at the beginning of your stay and it will save you loads of money on really high quality but reasonably priced food.
