If you are in the market for a backgammon set visit Ekavi. The boards are inlaid with a vatirty of different woods. Board sizes range from stanard to small for travel. All are beautiful and the staff very helpful.

The shop sells all kinds of sets, from cheap ones to top end ones. Discounts are available, especially if there are any flaws in the set. I found the service very friendly and I got good advice and a good discount.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
