About this activity
Embark on a culinary journey of taste, color, smell and texture, right below the striking Acropolis in the heart of Athens’ historic city center. This food tour offers an array of colorful and enticing treats. Visit delicatessens, aromatic bakeries and sweet shops, restaurants, dairies, spice merchants, grocery stores and pie shops where you will sample traditional Greek food, including the ever-popular koulouri, a circular bread with sesame seeds.
Your licensed guide will lead you on a food stroll and introduce you to small, hidden specialty food shops. Listen to commentary about the unique and intricate culinary heritage of Greece, as well as the famous Mediterranean diet, hailed today as a model of healthy living.
A genuine Athenian food tour would not be complete without a visit to the vibrant and central Varvakeios food market. Its bustling energy and colorful world of fruit and spice stalls and meat and fish vendors truly make for a cultural experience.

We really loved this tour, our guide, Mariana (sorry if mispelling) gave us a lot of historical and local information. A beautiful and tasteful experience, in never seen places in the center of Athens. I recommend also for families with teenagers. We tasted a lot of food and drinks and saw nice places.

Taking a food tour is one of the best ways to experience a city culture and feel the vibes. Lucy combined history with some traditional foods to help one understand the role of food in their every day life. We sampled at least 9 different foods from specialty shops to restaurants. I enjoyed the spice and herb shop and the outdoor market—what a fest for the eyes!! Thanks for sharing your love of Greek food and life. Shirley and Lea
