What You Can Expect

Crete Food Tour of Chania Old Town

See Chania Cathedral and other top sights while learning about the island's cuisine

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 Crete’s cuisine as well as the island’s 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 island’s 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. Cheese, olive oil, olives and sweet pie are other examples of typical delicacies that may be included.

Having enjoyed three hours exploring Chania and discovering its food gems, work your way back to the start point where your food tour finishes.
