Food of the Gods | A Private 3.5 hour Culinary Walk for Families in Naxos Town

    Did you know that Naxian cuisine and ingredients are related to Greek Mythology? In this one-of-a-kind mythology food tour, your family will not only explore the historic landmarks of Naxos, but also their relationship to the local Naxian flavor palette. Children are bound to be intrigued, as our talented guides bring history to life with their magical storytelling.

    During this culinary tour, you will journey through the major landmarks of Chora (the main town) such as the Temple of Apollo (Portara), the famous marbled Naxian Sphinx, an offering from the people of Naxos, and the Venetian Castle.

Traditional Greek desserts and beverages will also be provided at a particularly picturesque cafe stop.
