Full description
The Sicilian cuisine, with its rich cultural heritage, is one of the most gripping in the whole of Italy. Regional variations of the dishes make this culinary diversity even richer. Enjoy an abundance of Palermo’s delicacies off-the-beaten-track and experience extras including a ride in a 3-wheeled car. 

Enjoy a sparkling prosecco to begin and see one of the most breathtaking opera halls in the world. Experience the fascination of the Teatro Massimo, with its rich colors of gold and red and the grandiose painted ceiling. Make sure to have your camera at the ready. After tasting the best freshly prepared arancini rice balls in Palermo, hop into an iconic 3-wheeled car to travel to your next stop. This cult 3-wheeler is as Italian as pasta and wine and a ride in it is a real experience. 

In the middle of an ancient focacceria (bakery), Palermo’s most famous snack simmers in a gigantic pot, patiently awaiting regular customers and new fans-to-be. Pani ca meusa is a delicious specialty cooked in red wine and dripping. At the remaining stops, experience an explosive lemonade, nibble delicacies at cheese-expert Andre’s, snacks on unknown fruit including cedro or zucchini bolliti, and a sinful frozen Sicilian delight of the Cassata tartlet. The tour is circular so at the end of, you will find yourself at the meeting point.
