What to buy in Athens?
While there are a few large shopping malls incorporating international designer brands throughout the city centre, a more authentic Athens shopping experience can be found in the charming Plaka district. Renowned for traditional arts and crafts shops, the Plaka also has some great artist-owned gold and silver jewellers, antique dealers and fine art galleries.
Another shopping destination worth a visit during your Athens holiday is Ermou Street between Syntagma Square and Monastiraki. The bustling street is popular with locals and tourists alike because of its wide range of clothing, shoes, cosmetic and gift shops.
