This food tour was a nice combination of Greek history and Greek history of food. Lots of great shops! Enjoyed a nice variety of taste from breads/cookies, cheese with honey and spoon sweets, Herb shops, the central market, and our personal favorite which was the smoked meat!!

We went on the tour this morning, hosted by Fotini, having arrived the day before for a week’s holiday. As we are both vegetarians, we weren’t quite sure what was available and this was a brilliant way of finding out. It was also a lovely way of discovering and getting to know
