What you'll do

Our walking shopping tour will begin near the Kallithea station, next to the statue of Venezelos. Then we are going to a cozy cafe on one of the pedestrian streets in order to introduce our-self to each other and have a cup of coffee or orange juice. You can tell me about your gastronomic tastes so I can understand better what kind of shops you would like to visit more. Our route will pass through quiet shady streets, we will walk through the park, and then plunge into the atmosphere of the local market. Along the way, we will visit various small shops. Here you will not meet tourists, and the shopkeepers might not even speak English. But dont worry, I ll be your translator as well. This is the first part of a shopping tour. The second part will begin with a walk along the central avenue of Venizelos toward to the University of Kallithea. A large number of small shops are concentrated here, which the locals love so much. Russian, Arabic, Cretan, wine, fish, candy stores. And in spite of the fact that in many shops you can taste some products, like cheese or wine, for example, you will certainly start getting hungry. And here comes the third part of our gastronomic journey. We are going to visit a completely non-tourist tavern, where you can try Cretan snails, homemade wine and raki, fried sheep’s cheese, etc. Shops and taverns will be selected exclusively from your preferences. Also, I can provide you with some shopping bags and can even offer a shopping trolley (that is very popular among the locals).
