Chat with artisans and vendors for insight into their creations, and visit the central market to peruse wares from across Greece. Plus, tap into your guide’s local knowledge for ideas on tasty souvenirs to buy.
Dishes you may try include straight-from-the-oven pies, souvlaki (meat skewers), loukoumades—honey-soaked mini-donuts—and cold cuts. Stop for a traditional Greek coffee and local spirits that are part of the fabric of life here.
