This tour will give us the opportunity to visit the Ancient Agora of Athens which is the largely green area in between Monastiraki and the Acropolis, as well as discover the secrets of Greek gastronomic tradition.
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, ERGON House. 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.
Our tour will finish at around 01:00 pm and your guide will accompany you to your centrally located location.
