Description

After meeting your Greek gastronomy specialist, it's time to start your culinary walking journey through the tastes and smells of Greece. Wander through some of Athens' oldest streets, visiting various shops, markets and establishments to taste the region’s traditional delicacies. First on the menu are some traditional sweets and finger-foods, such as koulori, a circular bread typically encrusted with sesame seeds, and bougatsa, one of the most beloved Greek breakfast pastries, consisting of either semolina custard, cheese or even minced meat filling between layers of filo. From your guide, learn about the ancient culinary traditions of Greece and the herbs and spices used in creating these dishes. Next, visit the colorful Agora, also referred to as the Varvakios Market, a highlight of the vibrant Athinás market district. This is an extraordinary sensory and gastronomic delight, and the market offers an amazing range of spices, cheeses, olives and deli treats. The most impressive part of the market are the historic meat, fish and fruit stalls, offering an incredible variety of fresh products from all over Greece and the world. Enjoy a quick break, with time to visit one of the oldest coffee shops in Greece to refuel. The tour then proceeds to a folklore art shop in the beautiful Kotzia Square, situated just outside the ancient Acharnian Gate of Classical Athens. Here, delight yourself with tasting some traditional souvlaki at one of the oldest and best souvlaki houses in Greece. Your culinary adventure then moves from Ermou Street, the busiest commercial street of Athens, to Syntagma Square and the Hellenic Parliament, before moving towards the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens. Finally, at the Library of Hadrian, enjoy a wonderful selection of famous Greek dishes while admiring the astonishing Acropolis in one of the most genuine restaurants of our city, where the tour will be concluded.
