Once everyone is acquainted, embark on a leisurely stroll through the bustling streets, where the city's popular bars and restaurants come alive.

This Greek specialty is infused with a distinctive resinous spice, exclusively produced in Greece, offering a taste that's as authentic as it is delightful.

Next, continue to a stunning rooftop bar that offers superb views of Athens. We're not only here to soak up the scenery, though, and soon, you'll be served a shot of a hand-picked liqueur from Kithira. See if you can pick up the fresh citrus fruit aroma and spices Kithira is known for, and listen as your guide details the drink's history and traditions. You'll also learn how local ingredients are meticulously selected to create such aromatic delights before returning to street level for more explorations.

Visit Greece’s Oldest Distillery

The tour then takes you to a beloved staple of Athens—the city's oldest distillery, which has been operational since 1909. Here, in a place brimming with stories and aged barrels, you'll taste a special spirit crafted from local grappa and infused with sweet spices. Plus, as this spirit can be enjoyed either hot or cold, it's an ideal choice no matter the weather or season.

Wine Tasting Near the Acropolis

The best has been saved for last. Head inside a quaint wine bar nestled under the majestic Acropolis and settle in for a tasting of four hand-selected Greek wines. Each wine, representing the pinnacle of Greek winemaking, comes with its own story and tasting notes, which your guide will passionately share.

As you sip and savor, you’ll also be treated to a variety of seasonal Greek bites, thoughtfully chosen to complement the wines' flavors. Between delectable bites, raise your glass and toast to your unforgettable night out in Athens. Yamas to an evening well spent!
