“Idolio The "museumshop"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2008

Idolio a.k.a. the "museumshop" filled with many beautifull items from all over Europe and some other continents from ancient till present artforms and a litle from inbetween as well.
Spread over two buildings they find the right balance to expose the temporary,modern and ancient artwork in different styles,materials.Icons,worrybeads,jewellery,sculptures and glasart in many sizes and forms,many of those things one expects to see in museums instead of a shop in the middle of a popular touristresort.I was plesantly surprised to find out that the owner Mr Andreas Nikas and his wife Ms mariaTabouratzi have some of the "collection" for themselves to enjoy and the rest to sale to be able to collect more beautiful pieces of artwork in the near future.They're always there to help people to get what they really want and will enjoy for times to come instead of making a quick sale and cashing in and be done with it.
I've never had the pleasure of entering a world from which i thought only existed in my dreams,to find out such a place exists was like dream come true.I'm quiet possitive that many other people will be able to have the same experience as i have when having visited Idolio a.k.a "the museumshop".
