A short bus journey from the port will take you to a typical Myconian homestead, or ‘Spiti’. Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly welcomed with the traditional ‘loukoumi' (Greece’s very own version of Turkish delight), and a cheery glass of Teta's liqueur.

Next, it’s a tour of the kitchen garden and an informative lesson in how to cultivate your own vegetables all year-round. Waiting for you in a corner of the garden will be a small taster of local specialities – rusk with ‘kopanisti’ (a local cheese), louza (a local smoked ham), tomatoes and olives, along with locally-made wine and raki.

During your cooking lesson, you’ll learn how to make Greek spinach pie, stuffed tomatoes and peppers and the famous Greek dip, tzatziki.Afterwards, indulge in a delicious lunch and relish the fruits of your labour.

Before making your way back to the ship, enjoy a photo opportunity at the Spiti – a great way to mark a memorable day.
