The area
Address
Neighborhood: Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.

Fantastic products and equally as fantastic people. Everything in the store is beautiful, the only difficulty is figuring out how to get it all back home. If you see more than you are able to carry they offer shipping to just about anywhere in the world. Upon getting home I had an issue with one of the items I had purchased and the staff went above and beyond and sent a replacement item. I could not recommend this store more and will certainly return anytime I am in Athens. There are many olive wood stores in the city but very few possess the quality of pieces that this store does. A+ products and A+ people.

Beautiful Gift Shop

Great place to shop for gifts. I purchased a few wooden utensils and they went down a treat as gifts. The owner explained how it is a family business and all items hand made using olive wood. All items very beautiful and unique. Absolutely Fabulous!

On our first visit to Athens the Plaka was a bit overwhelming. Came upon The Olive Tree Store and what a find! I was amazed at the selection of beautiful items in the store. Due to limited space I bought a small item but fell in ❤ with the bowls. After returning home, I coordinated purchasing a beautiful salad bowl with Petros who was amazing. I highly recommend you visit the store. Well worth your time!

I fell in love with this store while visiting Athens. The quality of the products are amazing and they offer a wide variety of unique items. I am always looking online to see what’s new and I love the fact that they will ship to the US so I can shop from home. There’s something for everyone here!

I worked with Petros on selecting products and having them shipped to the US. The pieces I purchased are great quality and one of a kind, I love them! He was extremely helpful and the items I purchased shipped and arrived very quickly. Would definitely recommend this store!

Absolutely perfect store. The quality of the olive wood is incredible! We purchased gifts for home and wish we had bought more. The sales lady was really helpful and showed us all our options and was very patient with us. I highly recommend it!

Great store with wonderful people
Jun 2019
We specifically were looking for this store (because we had purchased a great piece 5 years ago) and found it just as Spirithula (apologize for the spelling) was closing for the night. She very graciously said "come in, come in" and opened the doors for us (unlike other stores who waved us away!). She was wonderful, didn't make us feel rushed, and ultimately we bought some gorgeous pieces...one of which had to be shipped. This store is an absolute must - not just for their products, but for their wonderful attitude. Thank you so much!

Awesome Store for Olive Wood Products
Jun 2019 • Friends
Great store with lots of variety of handmade olive wood things. Great place to buy some things for yourself or as souvenirs for others. We bought many cooking utensils, cheese boards, backgammon boards and other things. The shop owner was so pleasant, and carefully wrapped everything up for us to protect it for the remaining days of our trip. I would highly recommend a stop in this nice store.
