There is no better way to feel the vibe of Athens, than a culinary walk through the market area!
Leave behind you the “touristy” part of the city and mingle with the locals in a totally unknown area to the average tourist, while tasting original Greek delicacies and learning all about the cultural and everyday habits of the Athenians.
This tour includes a sampling and tasting of over a dozen original Greek delicacies and products, as well as a visit to the bustling “Varvakios” central market of Athens.
Athens Central Market and More
Our Athens Walking Tours guide will lead you through the most exciting place in Athens, the Athenian Central Market.
Here is where celebrity chefs, small neighborhood grocery store owners and everyday people gather to discover and haggle the freshest meat, fish and colorful vegetables.
As you will walk by the stalls with the lively, shouting, sellers, you can not help but feel the invigorating energy of this historical building.
Experience the Tastes of Greece
Your walk will continue through busy alleys and streets, visiting small grocery and specialty shops, while tasting and sampling a wide variety of food, ranging from mouth-watering syrupy loukoumades to fresh, out- of- the- oven savory pies, and fragrant olive oil, cheese or olives to a delicious warm pita bread filled with seasoned grilled meat, fresh veggies and traditional sauce called gyros. Sips of Greece’s strong and tasteful spirits round out the experience.
Discover Athenian Food Culture
In between each bite, you’ll gain insight into Greece’s fascinating food culture, the evolution of the country’s cuisine and the healthy nature of locally produced, organic ingredients.
