Gastronomy and culinary vacations

Gastronomic tourism refers to trips taken to destinations where the local traditional food and beverages are the main motivating factors for travel. The distinctiveness of the “kitchen taste” (gustation) is many times associated with the quality characteristics of its society, while “revealing” information concerning its cultural and economic history. Dozens of scientific studies have shown the positive effect of a balanced Greek diet on a person’s health, beauty, longevity and well being.
No Greek holiday would be complete without indulging in some traditional Greek cuisine. With a huge assortment of dishes incorporating the freshest meat, cheese, seafood and vegetables, everyone can find something to titillate ones taste buds. Greece also produces a great variety of wine. There is nothing better than watching the sunset over the Aegean Sea with a glass of wine in hand, while grazing on a plate of delicious appetizers called meze.

Greek gastronomy has a recorded history of around 4,000 years, with special characteristics based on pure and unique quality goods produced on Greek land.

We organize unique authentic culinary and oenophile experiences hosted by local chefs & wine experts (oenology & viticulture) such as cooking lessons emphasizing on ethnic specialties, private wine tasting – wine tours at important wineries with bilingual expert guides.
