Unforgettably delicious and a great experience!
Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines, Normans, Arabs, Spaniards – all the island’s conquerors left their traces in Sicily.

Your Food Hopping event is like a multi-course meal, where you experience a new location and taste a different food or drink specialty with each course - an abundance of Palermo’s delicacies off the beaten track and extras like a ride in a three-wheeler Ape car.

- After a sparkling prosecco to kick off, you will experience one of the most breathtaking opera halls in the world on a flying visit.
