Check out our Athens food tour itinerary and feel free to tailor it to your wants and needs:
Follow our food expert to our favourite local bakery. Kick off your day with scrumptious spinach and feta cheese pie, and watch how the Greek custard cream pie is made – like pizza tossed in the air! What a wonderful way to start your Greek food adventure!
Next, dig into traditional Greek breakfast with a cup of Greek coffee or freddo. Visit the oldest coffee roaster of Athens and engage in their daily coffee ritual of making Greek coffee on hot sand!
Skip the tourist traps to find your way to a Greek specialty shop. Support a family-owned business that always welcomes our guests as friends, with a glass of Greek wine or spirits. Taste exquisite feta cheese, graviera, kaseri, Kalamata olives with Greek salami and prosciutto made from a “bizarre” Greek treat (you could never guess).
No Greek food walking tour can claim to be authentic, if it does not include a taste of Greek yogurt. Do you think you know the real deal? Maybe not… Most of our guests haven’t tried authentic Greek yogurt – making this stop the highlight for many who come on our food walk in Athens.
What’s up next? “The Wall of Greek Honey”. Along with wine and olive oil, honey has been essential to the Greek diet since ancient times. Visit a Greek products shop to immerse yourself into the sweet world of our local nectar. Taste the immense variety of Greek honey, among others, thyme honey from Crete, and forest honey from the Peloponnese.
Just when you think you’ve had enough, remember… more than 20 tastings are included in this Athenian food walking tour. The warm-up is over. Enjoy traditional cooking at a Greek restaurant in the form of various meze-style dishes. Relax, sit down, and enjoy local gastronomy bite by bite.
Time to create the sweetest memories with your family. Visit a famous Greek dessert shop in the bohemian neighbourhood of Psyrri. Satisfy your cravings for crunchy fillo baklava, served with mastiha ice–cream and a local drink called mastiha liquer.
If we’re lucky, we’ll get a glimpse of how Greek baklava is made right on spot.
