    What You Can Expect

    After your pick-up from your hotel, we are heading towards Monastiraki square, a can’t-miss spot of the city of Athens, from ancient rivers and huge libraries to thousand-year-old churches and cursed mosques; Monastiraki square is arguably a place of wonder.We cross the Monastiraki square and we get closer to the Ancient Agora of Athens, in the shadow of Acropolis or the Athenian Forum if you may, which was the heart of ancient Athens, the focus of political, commercial, administrative and social activity, the religious and cultural centre, and the seat of justice.

    Today it’s one of the city's most important archeological sites. Not only you will get to see the most well preserved classic temple, dedicated to Volcan, but you will have the chance to step in a Stoa or portico, that houses the findings of the site today. This Stoa is reconstructed back in the 50s and its one of the most fascinating buildings-museums in the city!

    Later on, we come back to Monastiraki square and through Mitropoleos street, we are going to have a taste in the most “trendy”Agora of Athens. Here, we are going to explore a modern market with food products of small, independent, honest, food artisans. Those local artisans who choose to remain true to their tradition and craft real food products following history-tested processes. This is the right place to promote Greek gastronomy and this is the right place to taste the authentic Greek cuisine.
