Description

Begin your Philadelphia neighbourhood tour on the ever-colourful South Street. Follow your local guide through the streets of the Bella Vista neighbourhood for your first glimpse of some beautiful mosaics. Swing by a historic deli, duck into a tempting bakery, and marvel at the sights, smells, and sounds of the famous Italian Market.

The market is the oldest and largest everyday open-air market in America, and you'll soon understand why it is one of Philly's must-see attractions. Tempt your taste buds as we wander past the myriad of local stores carrying everything from cheese, chocolate, spices, and olive oils, to the best bakeries, butcher shops, and produce stalls. Take the time to mix with business owners and residents, taste some samples and hear stories of early immigrants to the city. It was also where Rocky ran on one of his famous training runs. Take this opportunity to enjoy lunch and shopping at the market.

After lunch walk onto Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, showcasing the mosaic art of Isaiah Zagar. This amazing place includes a fully mosaic indoor gallery and a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic structure.

From the Magic Gardens, catch a local bus for a ride down Philly's eclectic and dynamic South Street. After your local public transit experience, walk into one of the country's most historic neighborhoods, Queen Village, to explore its tiny streets and soak in the character of this charming corner of Philadelphia. Finish the tour back on South Street for a chance to ask your local guide where you should eat, drink, and shop after the tour.
