Where To Eat And Drink Like An Athenian
Take our tour when you arrive in Athens and learn where you should be eating and drinking during your stay here to experience the very best Athens has to offer.
As we walk through the market area of the City we will show you the best tavernas for traditional food where the ingredients are so fresh that there is no menu! You have to wait and see what the chef bought that morning! The amazing eateries that make their own barrel wines sold exclusively by them, where to drink the best ouzo whilst listening to live Greek music and of course, the best gyros in town!!
We will also show you where some of the best bars in Athens are. Some are rooftop bars with amazing views of the Acropolis but others are hidden, local speak easy style places where you will get a real taste of Athens for the Athenians.
We will take you to a 100 year old coffee shop and offer you a Greek coffee and see it being made the traditional way.
We can also show you where to buy fresh spices, olives and oil, handmade leather goods and many other souveniers at local prices so bring a shopping bag with you!
Greek food is some of the best in the world. The wonderful natural ingredients we grow and eat here in the beautiful Greek sunshine are so tasty and fresh that people holiday here just to enjoy the cuisine!
Dont waste your opportunity by eating in tourist areas! Learn how to eat like a Greek!
Our journey will take place in the market area and the socialising area of the City where the Athenians eat on a daily basis. You will see the different markets and have an opportunity to shop, take photos and discover wonderful places to eat and drink during your stay in Athens. Forget the tourist places and spend the rest of your time here living like an Athenian. We eat with passion as you will discover on this experience!
