Mythology Food Tour for Families

    Embark on a mythological journey into Greek gastronomy with the whole family! Taste eternal Greek delicacies, discover their origins and listen to great stories from Greek Mythology! With as many as 15 different foods to taste, there is no need for breakfast and there will be no room for lunch!

    Food is in the heart of Greek culture and there is no better way for your family to experience it than with a kid-focused Mythology Food Tour in the traditional heart of Athens.

    During this 3-hour walking food tour, we will dive into the secrets of Greek foods and flavors that survived for more than 2 millennia. We will learn more about Greek mythology and Greek gastronomy as well as the Greek traditional diet. During your walk, our local expert family guide will take you on a discovery tour through ancient streets, with the Olympian Gods at your side. The kids will have a leading role in this journey, through fun activities, quizzes, and storytelling.

    This walking adventure takes us through busy and colorful artisan neighborhoods and to the central Athenian market with traditional Greek products.

    Your insider child expert storyteller will meet you at the fruit stalls on the colorful Monasteraki square. Once the central trade spot of Athens, this place was -and still is- a boiling cauldron of people and goods. Goddess Athina will lead the way towards the oldest bakery of Athens where we will have a traditional Greek Koulouri for breakfast. After, we will visit a traditional pie baking shop where we will sample bougatsa – or cheese pie – as well as other versions of this ancient old recipe while watching a live demonstration.

    The next stop will be the area around the central food market with its bustling energy and craftsman workshops. We will stop at a famous Athenian charcuterie that has been in operation since 1922 and considered the charcuterie of the connoisseurs. We will sit down and taste cold cuts, feta, some hard cheeses, rusks, and dolmades, all of which already existed in ancient Greece. Adults can try some Cretan raki, a traditional alcoholic beverage that is great for sharing. A unique experience amongst spices and herbs while listening to stories of the Greek Gods.

    After our break we will continue towards the oldest market of Athens; the Varvakeios Market. Fruits, spices, meat, and fish all come under one roof here. We will taste and admire the many kinds of olives here. Did you know that Athens is named after Goddess Athena because she gave the city an olive tree?! We will also see and smell many herbs that were considered medicine in Ancient Greece. During our Mythology Food Tour you will learn that Hippocrates first recommended the use of herbs as a source of healing. Can you recognize basil? The royal under the Greek herbs!

    The indoor meat and fish market is next on our list. Here the products are still laid out as it was done many centuries ago. You will learn here that the ancient Olympic athletes came mostly from rich families in Greece. These families could afford to feed on more protein-rich beans and meat. They did not eat only bread, fruit and vegetables, which were the foods that all the other people ate.

    When it is time for lunch we walk towards the Acropolis where we will sit down for traditional Greek pita souvlaki prepared the ancient Greek way. After lunch, our Mythology Food Tour continues to one of the oldest sweet shops in the city for traditional loukoumades. These are doughnut-shaped fluffy sweet honey puffs that are deep-fried and served soaked in hot honey syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon. Your kids will love them!
