Grab a drink at a local coffee shop (payable direct) and see one of the City's great murals across from a typical neighborhood park.

With your local guide leading the way, explore the huge variety of stores located here, many of which are Italian in heritage. Your taste buds with be titillated as you wander past cheeses, chocolates, spices and olive oils. Discover a wonderful kitchen store, bakeries, butchers and myriad of other produce stalls.
And don’t worry, if the temptation to purchase becomes too great, you’re likely to get a bargain as many of these stores discount for our travellers! Along the way you'll get the chance to talk to some of the owners and employees of these shops and stalls, and hear fascinating stories of the development of this area over the years.
As you continue through the market, cross over the main intersection and head towards a variety of Mexican stores. If this area looks familiar it’s probably because it was here that Rocky ran through the streets on one of his famous training runs. Nearby you’ll also see a selection of Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Chinese, brimming with smells and sights that are sure to delight the senses.
This Philadelphia market tour concludes at the intersection made famous by local restaurant competitors Pat's and Geno's, where you'll be able to buy a famous Philly Cheesesteak after the tour.
