Our refreshing walk we’ll lead us to the extraordinary Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games took place.

In between, you’ll taste Feta cheese, Greek olives, and sip Greek wines. This neighborhood walk revolves around sampling Greece’s traditional food. Athens Central Market and More! Our guide will lead you through the bustling Athens Central Market, a historic food market unlike any other in Europe.
