A visit to the historic city of Philadelphia would not be complete without a tour through its famous South 9th Street Curb Market (Italian Market). Meeting your guide at the colourful South Street, you will star this awesome tour with a wander through the small streets of the Bella Vista neighbourhood. Your stomach won’t be forgotten, with this little area home to some cute bakeries and tasty delis.

From here, we enter into the famous Italian market, with its sights, sounds and smells reminiscent of another world. The oldest and largest open-air market in the USA is renowned for its Italian heritage, with more cheese, chocolate, spices and olive oil than one can poke a stick at. Shopping won’t be an issue, as many of the store owners know our local guides and provide bonus discounts for anyone undertaking this flavoursome walking tour.

We continue on through the shops and stalls, and find ourselves in the midst of the Asian section of the market. The Chinese, Vietnamese and Cambodian options are aplenty, and if you weren’t full before, it is guaranteed your stomach will be ready to burst. We finish this splendid tour at the intersection home to the famous ‘Pat’s and Geno’s’, which is THE spot to buy some famous Philly Cheesesteak, just in case your stomach wasn’t happy enough already.

“I am a "born and bred Philadelphian" who has given tours of the historic mansions in Fairmount Park and I just want to commend Kenny for an very informative and fun tour of the Italian Market, He was really good at knowing his audience and giving us the time we needed at each stop. I never felt rushed during the tour and although we had a parking concern and had to leave the tour 20 mins. earlier, Kenny did a fabulous job with the two hour time limit of the tour. I will recommend this tour as well as other Urban Adventure tours to my family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful morning spent learning more about the city that I love! Terri Jones”
