Timetable

09:15

Starting Point: Syntagma Square (opposite of Hotel Grande Bretagne)

9:30 – 10:15

Start by sampling different varieties of the country’s favorite breakfast food: traditional village pastries. Choose from a selection of cheese pies and spinach pies wrapped in traditional multilayered phyllo dough, before heading to your next stop, to explore the fragrant world of Greek herbal teas and infusions. Here you’ll get a chance to discover some of the different varieties of Greek herbs and learn about their medicinal properties and their role in traditional life around the country.

10:30 – 11:00

Next, we’ll treat you to one of the country’s favorites treats: a plate of warm, freshly prepared loukoumades drizzled with aromatic Greek honey. Just a touch of sweetness before we move on to some savory delicacies!

Your journey will then take you to the hustle and bustle of the capital’s iconic 19th-century Varvakeios market, giving you the opportunity to walk amid the traditional stalls to take in the sights and smells of the freshest raw ingredients that have been the basis of Greek cuisine for centuries! Your expert guide will share stories of old Athens that will bring alive the history of this magnificent location.

11:00-11:30

The next stop takes you to what is likely the best traditional deli in the Greek capital, where you’ll enjoy an authentic meze experience, complete with a selection of smoked cured meats, traditional Greek cheeses and fragrant tsipouro to wash it down

11:30-12:00

Continuing your journey through the city center’s winding side streets, you’ll stop to enjoy a cup of original Greek slow coffee. Traditionally brewed and served in small cups with a small sweet on the side, Greek coffee is a ritual in its own right—and you’ll also get introduced to another, closely linked ritual: the folk art of fortune telling based on the patterns of coffee grounds in your cup.

12:00-13:30

To wrap up your tour, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy one-of-a-kind souvlaki, the quintessential Athenian street-food, before indulging in a fantastic wine-tasting experience to familiarize yourself with the world of Greek fine wines.
