A half a day gourmet tour of the Old Bazaar of Skopje
We will enjoy a tour of the tastiest specialities that are unique to the Skopje's Old Bazaar, combining insights to the Old Bazaar's architecture, crafts and people.
We will also visit the landmarks that surround us in between our meals. We will walk from one place to another until we are ready for another tasty experience.
Please know, this tour would not be fully experienced by a person that has dietary restrictions, such as: lactose intolerance and/or gluten intolerance. However, I will do my best to give you a worthy option.
We will meet at your hotel in Skopje and make our way to the Old Bazaar.
We will start with a first course of tasting a typical, yet a specific salty pastry that can be found only in Skopje and only in that bakery. An entrance to the world of the Old Bazaar.
From there on we will walk through the marketplace near the Old Bazaar looking (and if you want tasting or shopping) the products offered there.
A coffee or tea will be our break from visiting the historic and cultural landmarks of the Old Bazaar.
After a some more walking and visiting we go for a light snack of a specific 'Arab' pizza - lahmacun or a vegetarina pide.
We make another round of walking to see more museums and landmarks of the Old Bazaar, including the fortress.
Finally, we go for our main course - a local speciality and a tasty salad in the hearth of the Old Bazaar. After, we will have yet one more stop as we exit the Old Bazaar - a desert in the oldest and finest sweet-shop in the Old Bazaar.
Full and happy, we fish the tour.
