Try Greek specialties from the most tasty neighborhoods in Athens!

This tour has been mentioned in numerous international sources and allows you to discover Athenians favorite activity: eating!

Your guide will first take you for a morning wakeup at one of the most iconic cafes in the city. Next, try koulouri, which Greeks enjoy nibbling on. Head to a delicatessen shop where you can try different olive oils, honeys, and tapenades.

The culinary adventure continues in a bakery that is known for its baklava. Try authentic souvlaki from a popular grill before heading towards to true “stomach of Athens”, the Varvakeois markets. Here fish, meat and vegetables are sold in a lively atmosphere.

Next continue down a street dedicated to spices, where you will visit a shop that offers up all sorts of incredible smells from local herbs, condiments, and aromatics. Try a bougatsa from a local grocery store.

  • Superbe activité. Une expérience géniale. La visite fut passionnante grâce à notre guide Joséphine qui est très compétente, sympathique et toujours souriante. Ses explications sont claires et intéressantes, et nous avons découvert d'excellents produits . Impossible de ne pas tomber amoureux d'Athènes et de Joséphine.
