DISCOVERING SICILY: Tours of the Markets of Palermo
Reportage of  a  Walking tour thru the Markets of Palermo 
PALERMO MARKETS
Very nice Walking tour...Around 5.5 Km it takes around 3 hours 
What you are going to see: 
Ballarò Market  One of the Oldest and Biggest markets in Palermo...Full of Colours and Traditions. You are going to see a piece of Palermitana Real Life...more 
Il Capo Market  : Its Arabic origins are evident and it is well worth a visit. It's still a "soul neighborhood"  which was built during the arab period. Pirats and people that made the slave trade, used to leave over there...more 
Vucciria Market: This is maybe the most famous one cause it's also in all the main guidebooks and maybe for this reason today it's the less rapresentative of the Palermo culture cause it's the most touristic and even the sellers can speak a bit of English too :o)....anyway you cannot miss it. It's also famous for the Paint of Guttuso (La Vucciria) and for the Sevret Entrances to the Catacombs of the Beati Paoli 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sant'Agostino Market: This is the main Clothing Markets...over ther you can find a lot of cheap clothes...but not just that.  
Lattarini Market: If you like Military clothing, stuff for hunting and a bit of "adventure" this is the market. till 10 years ago it was bigger but now it's much smaller...Sicilians don't like "Adventure" too much :o) 
Calderai Market : This is the market of the Artisans of the aluminium...you'll find a lot of stuff to cook for your home and for your garden...you cannot miss it as well.
