Athens Vegan Food tour


Greekality’s Athens vegan food tour is undoubtedly the best choice for vegans visiting Athens who don’t want to miss out any of the local flavour! Part of our wider range of food tours in Athens


Overview of Athens Vegan Food tour

Vegans in Athens, you are in good hands! Together we will get to know our planet-friendly food choices in the city, championing the best local ingredients and flavours!

Greece is the epicentre of Mediterranean food and lifestyle. This is where the motto “You are what you eat” was born thousands of years ago. As a matter of fact the concept of avoiding meat and dairy products was actually invented in ancient Greece! Can you guess who could be the first vegan in Greece ? It’s Pythagoras! Being also a philosopher, he believed that killing animals for their meat brutalised the human soul. He was so strictly true to his ideas of not feeding on any animals, that since then the “Pythagorean” diet was referred to what we call today a vegan diet!

Explore a different side of Athens

Vegan restaurants in Athens spring up like mushrooms. In fact, according to Forbes, Athens is in the top 10 list of cities with the most vegan options worldwide. Your local guide will show you the best vegan spots of the city, offering you an excellent culinary experience during your stay in Athens.

Visit an alternative neighbourhood called Exarcheia favoured mostly by locals! There, you will find every street decorated with politically charged murals and many hidden bookstores selling rare vinyls and vintage guitars. Just off the centre of Athens, you will have the chance to support dedicated ambassadors of ethical eating in Greece and enjoy local recipes with a plant-based approach. If you’d like to pair this with a vegan wine tasting, we can also offer a tailor-made Athens Wine Tasting Experience.

Discover vegan restaurants in Athens

Start off with a refreshing juice or a nutritious smoothie in a colourful juice bar where their motto is “Pro healthy, pro vegan!”. Right on spot, you will be able to choose from a wide variety of fresh fruit and vegetables to add in the mix.

Following up, you will savour some popular Greek dishes such as “moussaka” in an extra tasteful vegan version with organic black beans and a béchamel sauce of coconut milk, as well as vegan “soutzoukakia”, some delicious eggplant balls flavoured with a mixture of spices.

Continue your adventure in the most well-known spot for souvlaki if you’re vegan in Athens! The very first vegan souvlaki joint in Athens, offers a handful of alternative gyro options (different types of marinated mushrooms with delicious sauces served with country-style fries) and one extra delicious option, the meat-free kebab made of lentils. You will also try their version of the vegan Dakos salad with traditional Cretan rusks, juicy tomato and almond vegan cheese.

Right across the street you will find yourselves in a small store with minimal decoration, but not minimal options. Here you will enjoy Greek doughnuts – one of the oldest desserts in the world- that we call loukoumades! Among the excellent vegan options “dulce de leche” and “hazelnut praline” stand out.

The vegan tour was excellent! Marina is well acquainted with all the secret places with the best food and desserts in town. She has a lot of knowledge about culinary, culture and history and she enjoys sharing it with us. The tour with Marina and getting to know all the new places was the best experience we had in Athens.
