Meet your guide at Kotzia Square and then set off on foot to discover Athens’ authentic foods in Central Market. As you stroll, admire the intricacies of the 18th-century neoclassical buildings contrasted with wondrous ancient ruins. On arrival, discover traditional Greek foods, such as feta and olives, then try delicious yet simple koulouri (a round-shaped bread with sesame seeds), elegantly formed pastries and ouzo, a classic Greek liqueur. Next, indulge in the potent warmth of Greek coffee, or refresh yourself with the iciness of a frappé during Athens’ warm afternoons. After working up an appetite, stroll to a classic Greek deli and taste some local fruit, meat and cheese. Enjoy light banter with the shopkeeper and watch close as patrons decide on the best offerings. Perhaps order some seasonal specialties for a snack later. Finally, cruise to the stony streets of Monastiraki Square, where your tour ends. Feel free to ask your guide for tips on Athens' popular restaurants or for directions back to your hotel.
