See the best of Athens with a guide, who takes care of navigation and logistics, on this guided tour. Go past city highlights such as the Keramikos Cemetery, Roman Forum, and Ancient Agora, among other ancient monuments. Pedal along bike-friendly paths and streets and cover more ground than if walking, learning the city's rich history as you go.

Like other reviewers my wife and I found this shop by chance whilst walking on our first evening in Plaka in Athens. I promptly broke my first cardinal rule when visiting a new place.... NEVER buy anything the first evening or day... you will invariably find it cheaper the next day!! Secondly I have visited Greece on several occasions and have never liked the shoddy mass made ceramics sold in souvenir shops. These pieces were entirely different ! Each one on display was a handcrafted reproduction of a museum piece. There was no pressure to buy anything although I am now the proud owner of two small pieces which I was able to bring home safely in my hand luggage. Considering the amount of skill and effort that goes into making of these ceramics they are not overpriced and if you are looking to take home a quality souvenir my advice is to make a beeline here and take a good look around because there is something here to suit both small and large homes (and pockets).

Like some other travellers we stumbled upon the workshop while wandering around Plaka after dinner one night. Stopped in to have a look and spoke with Dimitri only to find out he was originally from Melbourne (Australia). We ended up spending an hour of so getting an education in Greek history and enjoying a laugh. In the end we were blown away by the quality of the ceramics and the story that each one tells. We selected our preferred designs and Dimitri is shipping them to Australia for us. This was one of those 'lucky breaks' for us and we now have quality mementos of our trip to Greece. Thanks Dimitri and all the best to you and your family.

My wife and I purchased a bronze olive tree sculpture on our trip to Greece at this store and paid to have the store ship it back to our address in the U.S. It has been about 1.5 months since the purchase and the item has still not been received. We emailed the shop on numerous occassions, but have not had a response. We had to dispute the charge iwth our credit card company. Hopefully we will get some sort of response. We just want to receive the merchandise that we paid for.

We "stumbled" upon SJS Designs by sheer LUCK! Amazing shop with Handmade and painted True reproductions of pieces seen in The Acropolis Museum... Sonia and Dimitri are the owners and artists, they are fantastic to do business with. I purchased 2 outstanding pieces and will more than likely purchase more! An absolutely incredible find!!

Contemporary flair with Greek history. The reproductions you will find in this shop are hand crafted and beautifully finished. For a quality piece that stands above ordinary tourist souvenirs you must visit SJS Designs. We did visit early one afternoon and found the shop closed however and there are no opening times posted on the shop front so the evening seems to be the better time to visit.
