Philadelphia

Italian Market Immersion Walking Tour

Slow and steady is the pace of this walking tour through the Italian Market, any foodie’s delight and perfect for anyone who likes to shop, walk, or eat. As the oldest and largest everyday open-air market in the USA, there is much to tempt your taste buds as you wander past cheeses, chocolates, spices, and olive oil. Enjoy some nibbles, and when you find something you must buy, it’s likely your tour guide can get you a discount! You’ll be introduced to some shop or stall owners, and learn a little something about their stories and the development of the area.

Two hours is just the right amount of time to enjoy the mix of culture, cuisine, history and fun. As you continue your tour out of the market you’ll be crossing over the main intersection and heading toward Mexican shops. You may think it looks familiar as it is where Rocky ran the streets on his famous training runs. Nearby are Cambodian, Chinese, and Vietnamese stores brimming with delightful goods and aromas. While the tour does not make stops at these shops you may decide to check it out later.

The tour concludes at the intersection made famous by local restaurant competitors Pat’s and Geno’s, where you can stop in afterwards and get your Philly Cheesesteak, the local food obsession. These two establishments have had a friendly rivalry for years…they are busy places where the service is fast and the line keeps moving, so be ready to order!
