Gastronomic Tourism

WITH THE TERM GASTRONOMIC TOURISM WE ACTUALLY DESCRIBE A SUBCATEGORY OF CULTURAL TOURISM (GASTRONOMY IS CONSIDERED TO BE AN EXPRESSION OF CULTURE).

Travellers are after unique gastronomical experiences and it is one of the most important trends in the sector of tourism worldwide. Examples of gastronomic tourism services: Seminars of Cretan Cuisine, gourmed’s and wine conoirsseur’s events, visits to places where traditional products are produced, cooking events etc.

Given the gastronomic and cultural wealth of Crete, as well as the quality and genuineness of the local products, it is obvious that there is an opportunity to develop Gastronomic Tourism on the island and establish it as a Gastronomic Destination.
