Immerse yourself in the holiday spirit with a merry stroll through central Athens on this 4-hour
guided ‘Special Christmas Edition of Athens Food and Walking Tour.’ Led by a local foodie guide, the tour
takes in the city’s most popular places to sample the local delicacies, the traditional seasonal
treats and experience the taste of the Greek Christmas and New Year.
You’ll begin your leisurely festive tour in the heart of Athens at Monastiraki Square, one of the
oldest and busiest areas of the capital which sits beneath the magnificent Acropolis.
From here, you will wander around the lively streets mingling with jovial locals and festive
shoppers to explore the bustling localities. In Agia Irini Square, just a 5-minute walk away from
Plaka, west of Monastiraki, expect to enjoy a Greek coffee or another beverage of your choice
and sample the all- classic crisp ‘lukumades’ (donuts) with honey and cinnamon.
Next, stop off to enjoy other various authentic seasonal tastes in one of the oldest bakeries in
Psirri. The sweet aroma of baked pastries such as ‘Melomakarona’, honey-glazed biscuits, and
‘Kourabiedes’, powdered sugar-covered balls will certainly leave you with the fondest Christmas memories
of Athens. During this pleasant walking food tour, your friendly guide will happily
share stories about local life and explain the food culture of the city, including all there is to
know about the Mediterranean diet.
On your way up the main street to Sintagma Square, take in the city’s festive lights and
beautifully-decorated shop windows for a magical city experience before reaching the huge
Christmas tree standing in front of the impressive Hellenic Parliament Building, formerly the
King’s Palace. This small-group tour (maximum of 10 people) also includes tasting some
traditional Greek foods, cheese and cold cuts.
*You can even book for a small group of up to 10 or ask for a private tour
