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.
How to get there

We were attracted to the wood villages on display at this shop, recognizing that they were handcrafted and unique. This would be the perfect addition to my travel shelves where I display houses and villages from my travels. Petros said it could be shipped to the US for a very reasonable cost. My olive wood village arrived and it is even more beautiful than I remembered. Great place to find unique, high quality, hand crafted pieces!

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.

Amazing, patient, and kind service. This is THE olive wood shop in Athens. We couldn’t help ourselves to get several pieces, including a spoon, salad forks, a cup, and a beautiful cutting board… and the owner threw in a small gift as well. We will probably go back one more time before we leave just to be tempted by the 1000 year old cutting board wood.

The Olive Tree store in Athens was a very nice store to visit. It had a wide variety of unique and beautiful products made from Olive tree wood. The prices were reasonable and the employees were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this store if in Athens.

Living in Athens, I've had plenty of time to search out the best olive wood shops. I was shocked that the best one I've discovered so far would be in such a touristy neighborhood (the Plaka). The quality of the Olive Tree products are fantastic, it's not just some guy buying olive wood products from a distributor. They know their products, and they experiment with new products all the time. Whenever I have friends visiting from out of town, the Olive Tree is the place I bring them, and all of them have been able to find something nice to bring home. I can't recommend this place enough, the service is great, and the products are great. If you're wandering in the Plaka, make sure to stop in this store, it's much higher quality than many of the other similar shops in the neighborhood.

My partner and I shopped here in September, the owner was very friendly and was happy to chat about his products. We were especially impressed by the quality and variety. There were incredible pieces made out of olive wood up to 600 years old! We bought an amazing fruit bowl, it's a really special piece and we're grateful we found this place.

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!
