Embark on a culinary journey of taste, color, smell and texture, right below the striking Acropolis in the heart of Athens’ historic city center. This food tour offers an array of colorful and enticing treats. Visit delicatessens, aromatic bakeries and sweet shops, restaurants, dairies, spice merchants, grocery stores and pie shops where you will sample traditional Greek food, including the ever-popular koulouri, a circular bread with sesame seeds.

Your licensed guide will lead you on a food stroll and introduce you to small, hidden specialty food shops. Listen to commentary about the unique and intricate culinary heritage of Greece, as well as the famous Mediterranean diet, hailed today as a model of healthy living.

A genuine Athenian food tour would not be complete without a visit to the vibrant and central Varvakeios food market. Its bustling energy and colorful world of fruit and spice stalls and meat and fish vendors truly make for a cultural experience.

Dorina Katsadorak was the tour guide. She walked us along streets and places we would never have seen if it hadn't been for her. She gave much interesting information. Besides the shops displaying their wares, we stopped at an old church and rested in a park. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable esperience.

What a great food tour! Our tour guide, Despina, was fantastic-incredibly knowledgeable and informative about Athens, its history and food culture she displayed a real passion for good food and its place in Athens life-which was both irrestible and infectious! As always, the tour was a great way of getting an introduction to a new city and to meet interesting people from around the world. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
