No matter the style of shopping you are into, Athens will constantly surprise you with its vast shopping opportunities.

1. Luxurious Shopping In Kolonaki And Kifisia
If you are a supporter of haute couture and refined garments, then you should definitely choose the district of Kolonaki for your Athens' shopping experience. The majority of stores in this district revolve around beauty and elegance. Stylish creations from a plethora of new and successful designers are ripe for the taking.
On the northern part of the city, in Kifisia, you can also run into more stores that offer similar shopping options. What is the difference between those two districts? The ambience. The stores of Kifisia are housed in buildings which were "face-lifted" and now give off a vibe from past eras.

2. Vintage Shopping In Psiri And Monastiraki
Vintage leather jackets, used furniture, books with yellow pages, vinyl records of collective importance and unique pottery pieces are just some of the things you can find in your Athens' shopping venture in Psiri. If you have a knack for finding out the best bargains, then the district of Monastiraki should be your top choice. What is more, the flea market each Sunday will enrich your vintage shopping options.

3. Art Shopping In Plaka
Athens is a city that has deeply immersed itself into the world of art. From archaic to contemporary, signs of art have showered the city. This is why art shopping in Athens has always been flourishing. Plaka is the hot spot for such type of shopping. To be more exact, visitors can find several pieces of art, from jewelry and paintings to statuettes inspired by ancient Greece. Artistic pieces can be also found in museums such as the new museum of Acropolis and the museum of Cycladic Art.

4. Convenient Shopping In Downtown Athens
There is also the option of mainstream shopping in Athens, also known as going to the mall. Luckily, Athens comes with a significant amount of malls to suit both locals' and visitors' needs. Attica and Athenian Capitol can be found in downtown Athens. Upstate you run into the Mall Athens and Golden Hall while near the international airport you see the Airport's Commercial Park.

5. Greek Food Shopping In The Central Market Of Athens
Greek cuisine represents more than just food. It is a lifestyle mentality that promotes healthy products and intense flavors. Your trip would be incomplete if you did not give Greek food shopping a chance. Varvakeios Agora (Central Market) is the place to find whatever you are looking for. You can make pit-stops to taste the products and pick out olives of excellent quality, virgin honey, savory cheese and countless spices for a Greek meal back home. Definitely one of the best local things to do in Athens.

Vintage Fiat 500 Athens Tour

My wife and I only had a few days in Athens so we chose Theodore to show us around in his antique Fiat 500 car! He was kind enough to even drive to our hotel to pick us up as our hotel was in Pireaus, not Athens. We gladly paid a little extra for the pickup which is understandable as Pireaus is a bit of a drive from the Athens tour meet up point. Theodore has a super fun personality and was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Theodore took us to some amazing places thru the city and some that overlooked the Parthenon.. with great views of the city. And doing it all in his Fiat 500 made the tour even more enjoyable!! After viewing the various sights as the sun went down, we enjoyed some snacks and drinks at a quaint restaurant, then Theodore drive us all the way back to our hotel, showing us some more of the sights of Athens along the way! Needless to say, We had a great time, and learned a lot! Thank you to Theodore! Don't hesitate to book a tour with him! He is awesome!

A customized trip with Phevos

Great tour by Phevos. We truly enjoyed the city walk, Phevos did a great job keeping the group well informed and challenged with greek mythology fun facts. Great tips also about the city, Acropolis as we finished our tour at the Acropolis entrance. Recommend to anyone interested on a very good Athens city walk with a greek mythology spin!
