Join us on food walk through the heart and stomach of Athens! Bring along your appetite and discover Greece’s rich culinary heritage, meet the locals and have fun! Feel the buzzing vibe, colours and flavours of the Central meat, fish & vegetable market, Monastiraki and Psyrri area. Skip breakfast and reconsider your dinner reservations! We will taste around 15 local delicacies! We will go to a pastry shop for delicious spanakopita and bougatsa pie with cream or cheese (maybe see it in the making). Visit a local deli to taste around 6 different local cheeses and cold-cuts. Find out what original Greek yogurt is and top it with honey or wild cherry preserve. Discover a tradition dating back ages. How originally Greek coffee is made on hot sand! Try a big selection of top-quality olives and learn all about extra virgin olive oil. Savour a variety of different meze (tapas) made with fresh vegetable, meat and fish straight from the market. Finish off our walk with sweet memories made of heavenly desserts, like baklava and a unique flavoured ice-cream. Can be adjusted for vegetarians. Note: Sundays and tours after 4pm do not include the market.
