Meeting point Syntagma metro station. Start the day sipping a Greek coffee in a traditional Greek coffee shop, and taste fried doughnut balls with honey called "loukoumades". Get a bite of a filled, crunchy filo layered pie called tyropita in one of the oldest pie baking shops in the center of Athens. Taste koulouri, a specialty pretzel dipped in sesame seeds, from a street stand like most Athenians do every morning. Sample unique local delicacies like sliced meat, different cheeses from several regions of the country, olives and extra virgin olive oil. Walk around the streets of the central market of Athens, smell the spices, taste the fresh fruits and a variety of nuts and enter ”Varvakios agora”,  the main meat and fish market. Lastly, finish the tour by tasting the most famous and delicious Greek street food the glorious “Souvlaki”.

Meeting point

The meeting point for the tour is inside Syntagma metro station at 09:30am. Your tour guide will be standing, one level down, by the ticket machines underneath the big hanging clock holding a light blue Athenian tours sign.
