What you can expect
Discover Athens’ Christmas offerings with your local, expert foodie guide and friend. As you stroll the streets of Athens’ most historic neighbourhoods learn about the history and local culture of the city and find out what Christmas means to Athenians. With much celebration comes much food and Greece has plenty to offer at Yuletide! Taste the sweet, buttery joy of kourabiedes (Greece’s answer to shortbread) and the honey-drizzled delights of melomakarona, which can only be described as somewhere between a mini cake/ cookie or muffin, in any case- irresistibly soft and tasty! For the sweet-toothed the pleasures continue with diples, rolls of thin crispy pastry dipped in honey- syrup...on a cold December night, heavenly!
Our foodie exploration continues to artisanal delis and eateries for delicious tastings from cheeses to charcuterie to hot vegetable pies and of course Greece’s line up of warming liqueurs! From the fiery raki to the warming rakomelo try the local spirits which are particularly fortifying at Christmas time. Hidden away in the stone paved streets your expert guide will lead you to festively themed cafes as you step into a fairytale world of Christmas treats and cheer.
