Tastes of Athens

Tastes of Athens

70€ / per person
(0 Reviews)

Meet your guide at Kotzia Square in front of the Municipality’s building. If you thought Greek food was just feta, olives, and a truck load of moussaka you are wrong! This Athens food tour sets the story straight on the varied food scene in this Ancient city with a modern twist, and you will leave full of tasty treats and local knowledge on one of the most underrated cuisines in the world.
You’ll meet your local guide and begin this tour by exploring Kotzia Square, located in the heart of Athens. This square is surrounded by gorgeous neoclassical buildings, which were constructed in the early 18th century, and also ancient ruins of old houses that you will have a peek at on your way to the market.
Your guide will show you around the best of the Central Market, taking you to places few tourists venture and will help you to discover a variety of delicious Greek specialties. From the simple koulouri (a round-shaped bread with sesame seeds) and delicate local pastries, to the Greek treasures of feta and olives, the Central Market is a feast for the senses. We also try either an rejuvinating Greek coffee (in the winter) or a cold frappe in warmer days, which are popular local beverages. Athens food is a rich mix of old and new, traditional and modern, and this tour is a great way to discover all these aspects.
Next on this culinary tour of Athens, we drop by a Greek deli that sells traditional products and is a popular shopping place for locals. Here you can chat with the shop owner and ask him about all of his produce — and taste some of course! This spot sells the best seasonal food available, perfect for a picnic in the city if you’d like to return another time during your stay in Athens.
Finally on this Athens tour, you’ll make your way to Monastiraki Square where your adventure will end. Your guide will be happy to recommend other places to see in this ancient city and where some of the best local restaurants are located, if your stomach can hold even more Greek deliciousness! If you feel like slipping into a food coma, your local guide will also give you hand in finding your way back to your accommodation.
