27 May Honey Seminar
Meet your assistant and driver at the hotel and, begin your tour with a visit to the slopes of mountain Hymettus, famous for its thyme, used to produce the well known thyme honey.
The French author François de Chateaubriand, founder of the Romanticism in the French literature, referred to mount Hymettus in one of his poems, described it as the “Violet Mountain” (due to the colour of the local thyme, when in blossom), coronating the Athens city, with a violet thyme crown.
Further, drive to visit the Byzantine Monastery of Kaissariani, built on the 11th century and, being a true piece of art, because of its very important and rare frescoes (paintings). Next, drive to the top of the hill, to admire a panoramic view of Athens.
Continue, driving to the city centre towards a traditional building complex, whose friendly staff will be glad to initiate you into the Greek honey taste. Begin a honey seminar, where participants will taste nine different Greek honey varieties, and premium food blends. The honey tasting, is accompanied by Greek cheese and sweet / honey delights. Return drive to the hotel.
