TOUR DESCRIPTION

Greek cuisine is essential, unpretentious, intense and enduring. Just like Greek people are. Greek food is many things: it is the mix of the different traditions and influences, it is celebration and feast, the expression of its sun-soaked land, of the Aegean Sea and of the Northern mists, the much-praised Mediterranean Diet, the spotless cuisine of Monasteries and the savory street food. All this and more you can discover and experience in our Athens Gourmet city break.

During your stay you will visit Athens and taste real Greek food and wine in handpicked locations, meander through the alleys of Athens historic center, learn about Greece’s best ingredients and local producers, cook your own New Greek cuisine dishes and enjoy a quintessential Greek meal in a traditional tavern.
