As you may already know, studying the literature and architecture of a region helps you comprehend its history. Studying its art and music makes you aware of its self-image. It is by its food, though, that you understand its true and unique character. The most communal of the arts, gastronomy is visual and physical, educating and emotional because it is considered to be an expression of culture!!!
Speaking about the present time, “Gastronomic Tourism” tends to be mainly a domestic tourism activity, with consumers travelling to places just to taste and feel the aromas and flavors of locally produced products. That exactly was the inspiration of Lagos Mare Team, in order to create one unique and innovative activity for our guests!!! More specifically, we decided to create an attractive and interesting tour, in order not only to highlight the innumerous flavors that everyone wants to taste but also to give you the opportunity to experience and enjoy the whole preparation process of these traditional products!!!
Naxos is the greatest place to host a gastronomic event because among others the island is well-known for its traditional and distinctive cuisine where the variety, the originality and the endless flavor surprisingly impress any traveler and gives them memories for a lifetime!!!
