“A Plethora of Athens”
This amazing Food & Bike Tour is designed specifically for the food & cycling lovers and includes 5 different sample tastings from 5 different locations within a duration of 4 hours and a distance of 10 km!
We will make stops at some of the best local food places in Athens. With our bikes we will be able to cover more ground than walking, so this tour includes the amazing experience of getting outside the city centre boundaries and explore local neighbourhoods and eateries of the beaten path.
A delicious food tour to discover the best culinary spots in the city. You will get a real taste of Athens as your expert local tour leaders will guide you to places we love to eat & drink! We will also make many stops where you’ll hear about the history and the importance of Greek food in our culture and tradition!
What to expect
Equipped with an excellent condition bike for a relaxed and enjoyable tour and escorted by an expert local tour leader, we will begin the exploration of the city, passing by the new Acropolis Museum, having a great panoramic view to the Parthenon and the Acropolis.
Having the privilege of riding a bike, we will get off the city center and by using a safe bike path we will explore urban neighbourhoods that most tourists never reach. Our first stop will be at a traditional local pastry shop to taste the traditional Bougatsa pie! You can watch how the Bougatsa pie is made from the traditional pastry chefs! Words cannot describe how tasty it is, in any variation, from savoury to sweet!
With having already a smile on our faces, we will continue exploring the suburbs of the city on our way to the second stop. There, we will try the traditional Greek sesame – seed bread ring, the famous Koulouri, our “eating-on-the-go” breakfast!
Moving to our next restaurant, we arrive in the scenic neighbourhood of Plaka. There, we will visit a famous restaurant in order to make a sample tasting of the most iconic Greek dishes, enjoying at the same time the most famous Greek aperitif, the Ouzo! Yammas!
But what is a Greek Food Tour without Souvlaki? Souvlaki, this delicious wrap is the king of street food in Athens and you can taste it in many different versions. Our next destination is in the vibrant neighbourhood of Monastiraki, where the most traditional Souvlaki Grill Restaurants are located. In order to reach the area, we will drop off the bikes and make a 5-minute walk, passing from Pandrossou street, the main souvenirs street of Athens.
As we are heading towards the end of the tour we will seek for the best ice-cream in town in a famous gelateria, giving this tour a “sweet-ending”.
By the end of the tour, you will have seen a very interesting part of the city center and the suburbs riding next to all the important monuments and you will also have a round idea about the passion that we Greeks have for our food!
