☼☼☼ Delphi and Hosios Loukas Unesco Monastery Day Tour from Athens Including Great Lunch & Drinks ☼☼☼

We had a wonderful day trip to Delphi with Nikos this past week – he was a wonderful host! We were picked up close to our lodging in Athens at 8 am and headed to the beautiful site of Delphi. On the way, Nikos provided us with information about the site, along with a pleasant conversation.

After we finished at Delphi, we had lunch in a small town – this was one of my favorite parts of the day. Nikos ordered for us (after asking if that was okay), and we were treated to some authentic Greek culinary delights. We had Kolokithokeftedes (zucchini meatballs), Vlita (greens that were exquisite), Salata Horiatiki (Greek salad), among other things, and also had some delicious desserts, to include Ekmek (custard type dessert) and Kormos (an orange-flavored cake). The entire meal was absolutely delicious. We were also taught how to appropriate drink Ouzo 🙂

After lunch, we went to the Monastery of Hosios Loukas – it was beautiful and free of tourists, as most do not even know or think to go there. That was the beauty of this tour – we were off the “beaten path,” so to speak, for most of the day. In addition, Nikos provided us with a box of fresh-baked Greek desserts to take back to our apartment to enjoy that evening. They were wonderful! We really enjoyed this trip, I highly recommend it!

Thank you, Nikos!
