Along the way, you can taste local cheeses, traditional dishes, and liqueurs produced on the island. Our expert guide will show you through the streets of the town, pointing out family-owned businesses who specialize in various products and revealing a few hidden gems along the way. There’s even a visit to a candy shop where the kids can find out how the candy is produced!
The food tasting tour ends with a 20-minute short tour of the Venetian castle. This tour is ideal for families who are curious about the local food and would like a guide to show them through the streets of Naxos town. Tour length of approx. 3 hours.
Family Cooking Lessons in Naxos
Take your Naxos food experience a step further with a cooking lesson in one of the villages! In Kinidaros Village, we provide the opportunity to visit a traditional bakery to discover how pies and other delicious food is baked in wood ovens. After the demonstration, you can make and bake your own pie. Go for a stroll around the villages, and when the food is ready, you can enjoy a family picnic underneath the shade of a tree.
In Kaloxylos Village, you can visit a family home, where you can learn all about local life, as well as the kinds of traditional dishes that people still cook on a daily basis. Then, you will be shown and learn how to make Greek meatballs, a traditional pie and a Naxian omelet with cheese and herbs. You’ll love how fresh and delicious everything tastes when you all sit down to sample your work when it’s done!
