Meet your guide at Monastiraki Square and begin with a Greek breakfast at an authentic century-old café. Taste koulóuri, the traditional sesame bread rings, before heading to a cozy pastry shop to savor sweet loukoumades—Greek donuts—along with custard-filled filo squares.
Stroll through town, visit authentic cafés and shops mostly visited by locals, indulge in local pies and cheeses, and hear about the origin of Greek cuisine with its Mediterranean influences. As this is a private tour, feel free to customize your itinerary to your particular taste.
Next, visit the meat and fish market, meeting farmers and seeing local produce. Get some expert tips on food preparation and recommendations for places to eat in the city, and then move toward specialty shops to purchase fresh fruit, olives, cheese, ham and more. Taste local wine and organic products like olive oil, honey, 7-year-old vinegar, and—of course—the famous Greek yoghurt from family-owned farms.
End at Evripidou Street, smell the fragrance of scented herbs in the air, and visit deli stores in the historic center, perfect for a souvenir to take back home.
