Wine and tapas tasting.

This experience is not only about taste, but it’s also a moment of learning about the culture that distinguishes the Sicilian land, accompanied by the best selection of local wines.

Day 3: Cooking class and market tour with a local chef

It always starts with doing groceries in the markets, where you will be taught to make your way through the streets and appreciate the city's local produce until you arrive home. Here, with extreme care, the cooking class will start from the classics of Sicilian cooking, like pasta with sardines, to bread and panelle.

Day 4: Check-out

Wonderful Italy will not say goodbye, they will say "A presto! See you next time!"

Included excursions

This vacation includes 3 excursions to make you live like a local during your stay: the street food tour, the cooking class and market tour with a local chef and the wine and tapas tasting. These experiences will introduce you to the Palermitan culture, through the perspective of a local.


This vacation will be held in Palermo, Sicily, Italy. Palermo is one of the most vibrant cities in Italy. It lies between the sea and the mountains, between traditions and an ever more quivering social revolution. At times decadent, often dazzling to the point of blinding. Most of the social life is carried out on the streets of the historical center: you eat, you sell, you speak and you share because Palermo is the street.


This vacation includes a street food tour where you can taste authentic recipes, a cooking class with a local chef and a wine and tapas tasting in an authentic location.

The street food tour foresees tasting several street specialities, which will be eaten at the best Friggitorias, street sellers and Palermitan pubs unknown to most tourists. Palermitan street food consists of snacks like fried rice balls, Sicilian pizza, chickpea fritters, and potato croquettes.

The cooking class and the market tour with a local chef includes a 4-course lunch, water and wine. Last, but not least, the wine and tapas tasting will add texture and flavor to your vacation: the ingredients are strictly Sicilian, faithful to the philosophy of respect and support of the territory, promoting the Sicilian excellences that are the result of a reinterpretation of international scents.

Additionally, Wonderful Italy can customize your trip as you want to. Meals can be added to your vacation for an additional cost. Wonderful Italy can accommodate any dietary requirements, just share your thoughts with them and they'll be more than happy to arrange it for you.

The following drinks are included:

  • Water

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
  • Raw food
  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
  • Seafood
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation

Things to do (optional)

Wonderful Italy has a wide variety of experiences that you can try during your stay, from the ones centred around food such as cooking classes, wine and local products tastings, brewery tours and tasting of craft beers, to the ones focused on the Sicilian culture: the anti-mafia movement tour, the street art tour, the tour of craft workshops: old and new traditions, and many more. We have options also for the more outdoorsy type, such as bike-riding and boat sailing. Share your preferences with Wonderful Italy and they'll make it happen.

Additionally, there is no shortage of attractions in the area. The best idea is to mingle together with the locals and let them advise you on the upcoming events and shows. It is not unusual that you will end up spending the night at someone's place, sharing stories and good wine.
