1. Athens: Guided Food Walking Tour with Market & Tavern Lunch
Just as you cannot come to Athens without visiting the Acropolis, you cannot leave Athens without tasting the local products and traditional dishes that made Greek gastronomy internationally known. We invite you to walk with us through the central market of Athens; where we will find the best raw material of the country, talk about the origin of these foods, their weight in history, learn about different Greek customs.... Of course: We will accompany our walk with the best local sweets, rich pastry works and several tastings of cheeses, yogurts, cold meats, oils and Greek liquors. We advise you to come hungry! Greek gastronomy is an important part of its culture, in which we emphasize the values of sharing, conviviality and hospitality: Did you know that hospitality in Greek is said "Filoxenia"? A word composed by "Filo" which means "friend" and is understood as love of friendship; and "xenos" which refers to the foreigner. So hospitality would be translated as "love towards the foreigner", this tells us a lot about their culture. Following this line, we want to give you a warm welcome and introduce you to the Greek gastronomy and culture. Therefore, in addition to tasting a variety of new dishes and products, we will have the opportunity to see how they are traditionally made by the best local artisans. Finally, we will sit in a traditional Greek tavern where we will taste a great variety of the best "mezedes". These are small but very elaborate dishes, typical in Hellenic gastronomy (although not so common in tourist restaurants). Will you join us in this experience full of flavors?
