Vouryia is a boutique travel agency based in Athens – we provide travel and culinary experiences in East Attica region in Greece 🇬🇷
Athens is an inexhaustible resource of heritage and culture, so rich in history, sights, and tradition, as to be overwhelming. But there is so much to explore beyond Athens. This is why we have chosen the region of East Attica as a field of exploration. Our aim is to provide bespoke culinary experiences based on authenticity and locality.
The story of our brand
Vouryia, is a handwoven backpack originally used by shepherds and farmers in rural Crete. It usually contained a piece of bread, a flask of wine, a knife and sometimes a flute. They packed inside everything that was essential for their journey up the mountains. Sometimes they also kept herbs found abundantly in the hills or a piece of wood that they would transform into a toy with their knife. Deeply connected with nature and tradition, they needed very little to be happy.
Today Vouryia is mostly used as a keepsake.
Our origins from Crete and our love for the local heritage inspired us to use “Vouryia” as a symbol of exploration.
