Full description
Discover the varied and rich food culture of Athens on a walking food tour. With a local guide, try a vast amount of local dishes in various neighbourhoods within the Greek capital. 

Bite into a sweet, cream-filled, crunchy filo layered pie called bougatsa, fork into perfectly fried doughnut balls drenched in honey called loukoumades, and savor a satisfying meld of flavors from warm pita bread filled with seasoned grilled meat, fresh veggies and a traditional sauce called gyros.

In between each bite, you’ll gain an insight into Greece’s fascinating food culture. Learn about the evolution of the country’s cuisine and the healthy nature of locally produced, organic ingredients.

Walk along the city’s quaint Evripidou Street, known for its abundance of aromatic spices. Sample what’s behind the glass counters at family-run delicatessens. The aromas of fresh, out-of-the-oven savory pies, the tempting displays of Greek pastries and sips of Greece’s strong and tasteful spirits round out the food tour.
