ITALIAN MARKET IMMERSION

Mix and mingle with the cheery Italian-American community of Philadelphia on this visit to 9th Street’s very own Italian Market. Created and brought to life by the Italian community that immigrated to the States at the turn of the 20th century, they have bestowed it with the lively atmosphere and the general rural feel of any good old market back in Italy. So step in, check out the goods on sale, enjoy the bustling ambience and, more importantly, have a good time. Begin your day at the corner of 9th and South Street, from where you will then head through the Bella Vista neighbourhood to the thrilling marketplace. Explore tiny streets and iconic mosaic art, swing by a historic deli, duck into a tempting bakery and stroll along Christian Street before your senses come alive at the famous Italianmarket. Indeed, the 9th Street Italian Market is one of the very oldest neighbourhoods not only in Philadelphia, but in the whole of the United States. Inside it, sellers holler their offers while local and tourist shoppers alike haggle for the better price, all amidst the undeniably joie de vivre that spending a morning in a traditional market produces – a treat for the senses. As you meander round the various stalls, discover the sounds, aromas, flavours and stories behind every corner of this historical establishment. Delve into the true essence of this eclectic shopping and eating emporium. See the street that was made famous by the Rocky movies before we end the tour at the intersection legendary for competitors Pat's and Geno's, where you can buy a famous Philly Cheesesteak.
