Chios food walking tour
Start your day at the hippest café of the island. This vegan-friendly café at the heart of the town of Chios offers a variety of freshly squeezed juices made out of seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as carefully selected coffee blends and chocolate drinks from all over Greece. Enjoy your first stop at its cute garden and taste some of its organic, healthy snacks.
Now it is time to hit the road and walk down the main commercial street of the island. As the oldest commercial point of the island, you will find shops and spots where all the products of the island are being offered. Explore the narrow streets surrounding the area and let the enchanting smells of herbs and spices lead you to the spice district, a place dearly loved by locals. Visit the fish market and pay a visit to the medieval castle of Chios, a location frozen in time. Wander around its narrow alleys and experience one of the few still inhabited castle of Greece.
Your next stop is a local, family-run distillery. Operating for more than 80 years, you will have the chance to check the traditional process of distilling tsipouro and ouzo as you are tasting the different kinds of locally produced cheese. As your appetite is growing, save some space for the delicious traditional pasta of Chios known as herisia. This handmade pasta served with creamy local goat cheese and freshly cut tomatoes will definitely surprise you. Round up your day with a local surprise. Follow your guide through the maze-like streets and discover a tiny local shop which offers the best cheese pie of the island.
