Follow a private guide through Monastiraki Square and the central city market, Varvakios Agora, to spend a half-day sampling some of Athens’ finest street food.

This private tour ensures undivided attention from a personal guide.
Highlights
  • Get to grips with Athens’ cuisine on a private half-day food walking tour

  • Visit the central market, and try cheese, coffee, wines, honey, and more
  • Private tour with a guide focused on you alone

What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and greet your guide in Monastiraki Square. Then, hit the buzzing streets to learn about some of the Greek capital's specialities.
Call at an old cafe to try koulouria, a sesame-sprinkled bread that’s popular at breakfast. Visit a pastry shop for a custard-filled filo delight and loukoumades—small honey-and-nut-drenched donuts—and then head for a bakery and cheese shop to sample a pie and local cheese.
Next is Athens' central meat and fish market, Varvakios Agora, to browse the colorful stands. Savor home-produced Greek coffee and visit hidden delis to try fruit, olives, ham, and other produce.
Stop at a souvenir shop and taste Greek yogurt, wine, aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil, and honey—perhaps buying some take-home gifts—and stroll Evripidou Street to relish the aromas of its herb and spice shops. After one last tasting, your tour finishes at the starting point.
