Enjoy a Fig Orchard tour while learning about fig production and harvest. Along with grapes, figs were well-known for their medicinal and nutritional qualities since antiquity. Ancient Greeks believed they symbolized prosperity and peace therefore their exportation outside of Greece was illegal. The Royal Markopoulo Figs are known as one of Greece’s finest figs. They are particularly tasty, their outer skin is green with stripes, while the inside is brilliant red. During this experience, we will visit a well-known fig orchard in Porto Rafti just about 40 km from Athens. Porto Rafti is one of the best-known resorts of East Attica and offers visitors generous doses of natural beauty, history, and gastronomic delights. The orchard overlooks the crystal-clear waters of Porto Rafti while one can also feel the mountain breeze of Kouvaras forest that rises behind.
