Description

Are you fascinated by traditional life and local products? Join us on this Traditional Corfu Guided Tour and dive into the authentic traditional side of Corfu!

This shopping tour gets you closer to authentic traditions of Corfu by visiting some of the oldest commercial stores in the old and the new Corfu Town. Some of these stores were established decades ago and still remain unchanged, reminding us of bygone eras. Some others have changed with the times; yet they still sell their signature products, which are popular with locals and travellers alike.

And when it comes to food, you will be surprised to find so many Venetian influences in sweet and savory dishes keeping their Italian name too.

Your passionate tour guide will show you around the local market, where there are stores that have stood the test of time and some of them are one-of-a-kind. From well-known pastry and coffee grinding shops, cafés and milk shops to tavernas and celars with local wine; we will also spot butcher shops with locally made charcuterie, stores with traditional products such as kumquat, Corfu olive oil and honey, ceramic artworks and olive wood utensils. The tour also includes a visit at the reputable Patounis Family soap workshop. Find out about their interesting background and history, and discover their signature products.

During the walk you may buy products of your choice while we are at the shops and at the end of the tour you will know where to go to find the most authentic products of Corfu island on your next shopping day.
