Greece Sailing Trips And Enjoying The Tastes Of Athens

By MedSailors Crew published on 15 January 2017

Too often seen as simply a start or end point to a holiday around Greece’s islands, Athens is in itself a wonderful place to explore and soak up the best this country has to offer. And there is no better way to enjoy Athens than through a culinary journey to the best places to eat, drink and relax in.

As a bustling city, Athens has plenty to offer when it comes to vibrant and exciting street food. Chief amongst the dishes on offer here is one of Greece’s most traditional dishes: souvlaki. A distant relative of the American hamburger, souvlaki combines all different types of meat with bread, and it is an ideal dish to enjoy on the move.

In addition to this, the city’s many authentic tavernas offer a great way to sample Greek delicacies in a relaxed environment. Laidback atmospheres are the order of the day here, and with many dishes served in small portions, you are given a chance to try as much or as little as you like.

Not only that, but Athens is a wonderfully cosmopolitan city, and as such there are not just local dishes on offer, meaning you will never tire of the tastes here whilst enjoying a Greece sailing adventure.
