Each food walking tour includes mouth watering food tastings from the various specialty and food shops that we will pass along the way on a different “off-the-beaten-path” gastronomical route around central Athens. A tour you surely do not want to miss while you are in Athens.
We meet at the Korai street where the tour begins. An array of colors sights and sounds engulf the visitor and, at once, activate the senses. Along the way you will walk the city’s quaint spice street, browse through mom-and-pop specialty shops selling local wine, olive oil, cheese or olives, and sample what’s behind the glass counters at family-run delicatessens. The aromas of fresh, out-of-the-oven, savory pies, the tempting displays of Greek pastries and sips of Greece’s strong and tasteful spirits round out the food tour. We will expertly guide and explain things to you en route and provide valuable insight not only about the unique and intricate culinary heritage of the Greeks but also of the cuisine we have all come to know as Mediterranean.
