Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide in central Chania, set off on your stroll around the city to learn about its culinary history while scouting out its beloved cafes, markets and delicatessens. As you walk, learn about Cretes cuisine as well as the islands history.

Founded as a Minoan settlement, Crete went on to be ruled by the Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, Venetians and Ottoman Turks, with each set of rulers leaving their stamp on the islands culinary history. As is the case in many Mediterranean islands, recipes are handed down from one generation to the next, leading to dishes that are cooked with beautiful local ingredients according to centuries-old methods.

Amble through Patriarchou Athinagora, one of the Old Town squares, continue past Chania Cathedral, and then wander through the little-known backstreets and alleyways to find the Chania eateries favored by locals.

The number of food stops varies, as does the type of samples you may try. However, every tour includes local specialties such as rusks the delicious and crusty twice-baked Cretan bread rolls and koulouri, donut-shaped bread encrusted with sweetened sesame seeds.
