Palermo: The Taste of Sicily (EN)

Palermo -

Unforgettably delicious and a great experience!
Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines, Normans, Arabs, Spaniards – all the island’s conquerors left their traces in Sicily. This rich cultural heritage has made Sicilian cuisine one of the most gripping in the whole of Italy, and regional variations of the dishes make this culinary diversity even richer.
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.
Some highlights of your Food Hopping Food Tour Palermo:
- After a sparkling prosecco to kick off, you will experience one of the most breathtaking opera halls in the world on a flying visit. Experience the fascination of the Teatro Massimo with its rich colours of gold and red and the grandiose painted ceiling. Make sure to have your camera at the ready!
- After tasting the best freshly prepared arrancini rice balls in Palermo, you hop into an iconic Ape car that escorts you to your next surprise stop. This cult 3-wheeler is as Italian as pasta and wine, and a ride in it is a real experience. Enjoy your trip and buon appetito!
- In the middle of an ancient focacceria, Palermo’s most famous snack simmers in a gigantic pot - patiently awaiting regular customers and new fans-to-be: pani ca meusa. Don’t miss this delicious speciality cooked in red wine and dripping.
- At the other stops, you get to experience an explosive lemonade, nibble delicacies at cheese-expert Andre’s, snack on unknown fruit such as the famous cedro or zucchini bolliti, indulging in a sinful frozen Sicilian delight in the form of a Cassata tartlet and much, much more…
