How about combining food with culture and exploring a different side of the Greek capital? Organized by the Athens Walking Tours – the company the tours of which have been voted Athens’s #1 tourist attraction in Trip Advisor for 17 years running – the Athens Food Tour is a journey through Greece’s rich and fascinating culinary history.

Launched in June 2010, the Athens Food Tour reveals a delightful world of taste, color, smell and texture that lies right below the striking Acropolis, in the heart of the historic city center. Leaving the tzatziki and moussaka Greek food stereotypes behind, our licensed guides lead you through an alternative food stroll and introduce you to small, hidden specialty food shops. They provide valuable insight both on the unique and intricate culinary heritage of Greece as well as the famous Mediterranean diet, hailed today as a model of healthy living.

Each tour is a wonderful opportunity to try out a wide variety of local delicacies, ranging from the mouth-watering, syrupy “loukoumades” to traditional meats, herbs and spices, let alone the ever-popular sesame “koulouri.” A genuine Athenian food tour would not be complete without a visit to the vibrant central Varvakeios food market, with its bustling energy and loud bargaining.
