What you can expect
Travel off the beaten path with a food tour that takes you to hidden cafes, specialty shops, and the market where locals go to buy meat and fish. Awaken your senses to the delicacies Athens has to offer as you feast on Greek cuisine like koulóuria, loukoumades, olive oil, and wine.
Meet your food-loving guide in Monastiraki Square to set off on your tour. As you stroll the tiled streets, listen as they share fascinating insights into the culinary history of the city and chat about the treats you get to sample today. Your first stop of the day is a centuries-old café serving a traditional Greek breakfast known as koulóuria. This sesame sweet bread is crunchy on the outside, but warm, fluffy, and soft on the inside.
Breathe in the wafting smells of butter, sugar, and dough as you step inside a tiny pastry shop. Here, sample a loukoumades, a doughnut-like treat covered in sweet syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon and walnuts. Continue on to the bustling Varvakios Agora market. Take in the salty smell of fresh seafood and the colorful sights of the vast array of produce before stopping to savor a steaming cup of authentic Greek coffee.
Your guide then leads you toward a secluded specialty shop where you have the chance to sample locally made wine, organic olive oil, and world-famous Greek yogurt. Finish your tour with a walk down Evripidou Street, known for its spice shops that send out heady scents of cinnamon and clove before saying good bye to your guide. This food tour is voted best culinary experience in Europe.
