Kampos
The name “Kampos” (“campus” in Latin) is found in travellers’ accounts since 1673, and it means valley in Greek. Kampos is a protected area by the Greek Ministry of Culture as a historic site and traditional settlement. During our, Kampos Food Tour we visit a traditional mansion and see what’s hidden behind the walls while enjoying a Greek coffee with traditional delicacies at a famous citrus grove.
We continue to a mansion built in the late 17th century and learn all the secrets of how to make Greek sweets from fresh fruits, and we taste the handmade marmalades of the family-run local business.
As we drive through the Kampos narrow streets, we end up at one of the first microbreweries on Greece and the only of Chios. Remember, you will taste a secret beer that is only produced on Chios!
We now move to the outskirts of Kampos where labours used to live. We visit 2 unique farms, and we meet the owners who share their story and the uniqueness of their products.
