A Culinary Backstreets tour is one of the best ways to experience local food and culture. This was our second tour with CB, as our first was a memorable walk in Barcelona with Paula. Our guide in Athens was Carolina, who is a chef, cookbook...More
Food is culture, and there is no better introduction to the culture of a city than a food tour - but not just any food tour: A Backstreets Tour. Sonia, our guide, walked us through neighbourhoods we would never have discovered on our own. inviting...More

First of all, thank you Carolina for the most amazing food tour we have been on. Her passion for the food, for our experience, for sharing her knowledge to us, to help us change our perspective on food really made this tour special for us....More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.

as the others already said, there isn't more than 2-3 blocks at a time. Please note this in your reservation and the walk leader will make sure to accommodate!
Hope to have you with us!
