Mainland Delicacy Discovery
half-day tour
All The Marble - Philema Food Tours

In this sweet and salty experience you will be taken deep in Mainland Naxos and introduced to two more backbones of Naxian self-sufficiency. A delicious opportunity to meet the locals, taste their goodies and learn why they think this island is so mesmerizing!

Enjoy the chance to visit a honeybee farm, where you will get to observe these amazing creatures at work. In the safety of the observation box, the bees will happily demonstrate how they go about their lives and you and your family can calmly take your time to spot the queen behind the protective glass! Of course, you will learn about local honey particularities from the young and enthusiastic farmer and taste his delicious honey and homemade honey snacks.

In this experience you will also visit a beautiful village on the mountains of Naxos, where you will stop at a meat tavern that also operates as the area’s butcher shop as well as a meeting point for the locals. The owners will offer you a variety of locally sourced meat delicacies based on traditional recipes while your escort explains the history behind everything you try. (Vegetarian options available too, but the meat is definitely a must-try!)
