In general, it is but there are some difficulties. Athens, especially the central market area, is not friendly for people with mobility issues. Wheelchair access is very difficult and there are also some steps along the walk.
Although trained as an architect, Nikitas lives and breathes Greek cuisine. Beginning at an early age with weekly treks to the Athenian markets with his two grandmothers, Nikitas has surrounded himself with skilled home-cooking and the specialty foods of Greece throughout his life. He has been conducting tours in his hometown for many years: what began as small walks with friends from abroad in the late 1970s have morphed into critically-acclaimed culinary adventures in Athens' central market. Nikitas' walks are equally focused on food, the people, and the city, producing a rare insider's glimpse into the food culture of Athens.
