ATHENS CULINARY SYMPHONY
Athens is a city for all the senses and that is probably the reason why a trip to the Greek capital will stay in your memory for a long time. Out of all the senses though, taste is the one that will excite you the most, maybe because you will come across an unexpected culinary journey!
Breakfast and brunch have become a habit in the Greek’s life, mostly during the weekends. Friends coming together, gathering around a table, enjoying delicacies like pancakes or egg-based recipes. Even if you are on the go, get in the first bakery you will find in your way and choose a handmade pie.
Unlike other European cities, coffee is more like a ritual for Greeks, which most of the times lasts more than just a couple of hours and is accompanied with something to satisfy their appetite as well. Enjoy one of the coffees offered, such as Greek, freddo or frappe, and try out something sweet, like galaktoboureko or loukoumades. There are so many options to choose from!
Even if you do not intend cooking on your own during your stay, the central Varvakios fish and meat market, along with the central fruit and veg market on Athinas street and the widest variety of spices you could think of on Evripidou street are places definitely worth visiting.
While you will be in the centre of Athens, remember to look up! On the top of many buildings, you will see restaurants and bars, offering the perfect view of Athens. In the evening, when all lights are on, these are the ideal spots for some of the most romantic moments of your life.
