The area
Address
Neighborhood: Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
How to get there
  • Monastiraki • 1 min walk
  • Akropoli • 7 min walk

I was in Athens on vacation 2 months ago. I was downtown with some friends trying to find a gift store. We found this beautiful place with such lovely wooden products that were exactly what we were looking for. We bought many gifts for our families but we were in a hurry because we were flying back that afternoon. Unfortunately, i forgot a gift bag at the store and i didn't expect to get it back. But i was wrong ...
The owner, who was a very kind guy, kept my bag and sent it to me two weeks later.
Next time i 'll be in Athens, i will definitely visit oliveland shop. I recommend it to anyone else who is looking for unique handmade souvenirs in the best price!!!

Every item you could ever need and more in olive wood! I bought several items because it’s such a pretty textured wood. Packaged well for the journey home!

I stopped her to look for a gift for someone and found many options and attentive service. I originally happened upon the store my very first day in Greece and decided to wait until my last day when I was back in Athens so I didn't have to carry my present all over the islands the rest of the week. I passed and went into multiple Olive Wood stores while shopping in Athens and this store has the best selection and is the only one that will do personalized engraving (for only ONE euro!). Highly recommend!

If you’re looking for a place to get amazing handmade olive products there is nowhere that this better than Olive Land! We bought things there in Athens before we hopped around the Greek islands and nowhere compared to their selection or service! When we came back to Athens the day before our flight home we searched to find them again. The best part is that personalization is FREE. I had almost everything I bought personalized because we travel a lot so in 10 years I’ll always remember I got it in Greece. We got cooking utensils, games, and olive wood chalices personalized with our names in Greek. It’s an absolutely amazing store and everyone was so nice! They also speak many different languages so communicating what you want is easy! Definitely five stars and a must shop for all your olive wood goods!

Fantastic place for gifts for friends and FOR YOURSELF! I really loved that they burned initials into a gorgeous wooden spoon for our Chef friend. The quality is very high. Highly recommended. p.s. I have been coming to Greece every summer for decades and this is really the very best place I have found.

Very cool wooden gifts. My kids couldn't decide what to get for themselves and their cousins. They ended up with knives, chess sets and two wooden toys. The leather store next door is very nice, too.

Anyone looking for something with quality with reasonable price, not cheap-crap tourist disposable souvenier but ever-lasting and useful item? This is the place. My sister is gettig married in 6 month so she bought some kitchenware such as chopping board and some monor stuffs. Smooth wooden items with beautiful unique pattern stole our hearts. The owner's family handmade their product, even their business card!! Anyone visiting this area must visit and get nice gifts for themselves and loved ones!!!
올리브 나무로 만든 도마, 주방용품 한국보다 다섯배는 싸요. 한국서 십만원짜리 도마 40유로정도로 팔길래 저희 언니 혼수로도 사고, 데코용 도마도 사고..ㅎㅎ 오시는 분들 자석같은것보다 이런것 꼭 사가셔요!!
