Summary of The Day: Thessaloniki is known not only for its natural beauty and impressive Byzantine monuments, but also for its delicious food! Take your taste buds on a journey through the culinary landscape of Thessaloniki!
We'll begin our tour with a cup of Greek coffee - there's no other way to start the day in Greece! After you learn all about this delicious brew from your local guide, we'll take you to the commercial district of Thessaloniki for samples of the complex and rewarding flavors of Thessaloniki's local specialties. Try koulouri and bougatsa, small round bread snacks seasoned with sesame seeds. Koulouri is fairly plain, but delicious nonetheless! Bougatsa, on the other hand, can be filled with almost anything: cream, spinach, cheese, mince meat and the list goes on. Both have a history dating back to the Byzantine era.
Next we'll wander through Thessaloniki's two most popular open-air markets overflowing with fresh produce, fish, meats, spices, dairy products and local specialties - a unique and vibrant atmosphere that's sure to captivate. Listen to tales of the market from your local guide while you drink in the sights and satisfy your growing appetite.
Then we'll make our way to Athonos Square, characterized by old-world ouzeris and small taverns. There we'll visit one of the best ouzeris in the city and have some appetizers with ouzo, an anise-flavored aperitif, or the pomace brandy tsipouro.
We'll conclude our culinary tour with a sample of siropiasta at one of the city's oldest confectioneries. Siropiasta are syrupy sweets introduced in the 1920's by Greek refugees from Istanbul and Asia Minor.
This tour ends at Aristotelous Square, in front of Venizelos statue, on Egnatia St.
