    From there, follow your guide through the beautiful streets of Athens that will lead you to your first food stop; a modern deli shop with unique local products and dishes. Taste an array of authentic Greek flavors both traditional and contemporary, from velvety fava with smoked sygklino ham from Mani, to homemade phyllo pies, and everything in-between.
