by Urban Adventures Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $35

Get a true taste of the City of Brotherly Love with a walk through Philadelphia's famed Italian food market, the 9th Street Market. Take in the local culture as you wander through the city's personality-rich neighborhoods, while exploring vibrant shops and sampling delicious food.

Meet your guide at color-splashed South Street and head to the Bella Vista neighborhood for a chance to admire the many murals lining the city. Pay a visit to an old-fashioned deli and a bakery before walking down Christian Street, where the 9th Street Market greets you. The country's oldest and largest working open-air market won't disappoint. Peruse its selection of cheeses, chocolates, spices, olive oils, and more.

Continue on to a charismatic strip of Mexican shops (featured in Rocky's famed running scene), and then swing by a neighboring Asian-influenced area. Next, arrive at the well-known intersection of Pat's and Geno's. These 2 local eateries compete for the title of best cheesesteak in Philly; cast your own vote accordingly, should you care to order from either (or both) of the specialty shops.
