What to Expect
Begin your tour when you meet your guide at the Italian Market Visitor’s Center. Located just south of Center City, the Italian Market has been one of Philadelphia’s key culinary destinations for generations. Your first stop includes a coffee and sweet treat, which you can enjoy while learning about the history of this vibrant area. Hear about the neighborhood’s key delicacies from your guide—who doubles as a chef—and meet some of the market’s longstanding vendors. Next, visit DiBruno Bros (arguably the city’s best-known cheese shop) and enjoy a number of samples. Then, snack on freshly made Mexican tortillas, classic South Philadelphia-style pizza, and finally sample cannoli made at a 100-year-old bakery.
