Top ways to experience nearby attractions

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
  • Akropoli • 6 min walk
  • Monastiraki • 7 min walk

I highly recommend this beautiful jewelry! Our walking tour guide said they designed and made the jewelry for the Olympics and that Rick Steves recommended them, and that you actually get what you pay for, so I was pre-sold. I had planned on getting a ring to remind me every day of this special trip and I saw this one and it seemed so unique and special that I splurged. Elena was so sweet and helpful; they have seven technicians on hand to do sizing, and she delivered it right to my hotel room a couple of hours later.

I read Matt Barrett's Guide to Greece and Athens before and during our trip to Greece (highly recommend it, and it's free too!), and he highly recommended Olympico and its sister jewelry store, Byzantino, for jewelry shopping. Olympico has modern Greek jewelry whereas Byzantino has more classic Greek jewelry; I instantly gravitated towards Olympico's jewelry selection. It has beautiful, high quality jewelry that is of good value. There are so many jewelry stores in Athens and especially on Adrianou Street, but Olympico offered classy designs and high quality jewelry that I felt was lacking in many other stores.

Service was excellent -- I believe George helped us (I regret not getting his name). I bought a pair of beautiful Greek earrings here as well as a stunning ring that I'm getting frequent compliments on -- both were suggestions from George (?) that were excellent. I wouldn't have found the ring had George not suggested it to me! He was very honest and kind, and offered to also resize another ring I had purchased elsewhere for free, which I am very grateful for. My only regret is that the beautiful ring I purchased from him is too large in size -- since returning to the US, the ring constantly spins as my fingers were very swollen in the Greek heat. So, I'd recommend to future shoppers/clients to not hesitate to insist on/ask for your typical US ring size when buying/resizing a ring here as the Greek heat can really swell the size of your fingers! I highly recommend Olympico and would definitely go back the next time I'm in Athens.

We checked out about 3 other jewelry stores in Plaka area . Quality was superior at Olympico . Saw the same ring that I purchased at another store . The ring band was not as thick and the diamonds and the design was not as good as the ring I purchased .It was a hand made ring Greek design with brilliant cut diamonds. my husband and I were there on a cruise ship . we both left credit cards on ship , not planning to shop . My ring had to be sized .It had 2 bands and was reversible . They sized my ring took us to our ship and we got credit card to pay for my beautiful ring .we got a very goo bargain on it too . I had it appraised when I got home . I have gotten many compliments on it . One side is 18 carat gold ,other side is diamonds and white gold . love it !

Olympio is a real Athenian gem! The owner Marco is a seasoned professional and brilliant jeweler and historian. Very impressed with the gorgeous selection of Byzantine style rings, necklaces and bracelets. All stunningly gorgeous! My husband and I bought some pieces in 2014 and just visited his boutique again this evening where I acquired the most elegant pink tourmaline, diamond and gold Byzantine necklace. I feel like a goddess! Marco suggested I try it on even though initially I thought it was too stunning for everyday. To my utter amazement it looked perfect. I can't express how pleased I am with my new investment. Every time I wear my necklace I'll remember that beautiful evening on the Plaka, under the Acropolis purchasing my beautiful 'souvenir'.
Visit Marco if you want a special experience, excellent quality and a good value.

What a completely pleasant experience! After finding an overpriced ring in Santorini and wanting to wait on it, when I came back to buy it, it was gone. My husband and I figured it wasn't meant to be. When back in Athens (July 2016) before going back to LA we went to Olympico Jewelry (based on reviews here) and were not disappointed. I walked out with a ring and a necklace in rose gold for less then the ring I was going to buy in Santorini. Not to mention we sat in there for over an hour just talking with Marco and George. I could have easily bought more, the quality is exceptional.

Visited on our first day after reading good reviews on TripAdvisor and google.
Saw a beautiful ring which needed resizing after purchasing. Marco was able to organise this and even offered to deliver to our hotel( which we kindly declined ).
Went back on our last day and bought two other items for fantastic prices. The jewellery pieces are exceptional and not something you would elsewhere.
Highly recommend, excellent product and service !!

I had been referred to Byzantine jewellers in Adrainou Street , Plaka, Athens. I found them pushy and overpriced. Just a few doors down Olympico had the most beautiful selection, worked to my budget, gave great service and sold me a beautiful piece. No pressure to buy and a great experience

OMG.. the ONLY place to buy jewellery in Athens.
We had earrings made here in 2019 because George listens to what we want and after checking other jewellers George turns out to have given us an incredible value for money deal.
Had them priced back in Perth Australia at 2.5 time the price we paid. George.
After 3 years George remembered us and has looked after us again.
Beautiful diamond ring, fabulous gold pendant and a whole bunch of presents.
Big thing is WE CAN TRUST George and Olympic at 122 Adrianou. Str in. Pláka.

The jewelry is exquisite and the shop owners Marco and George are very helpful and interested in presenting the best pieces for each individual. They take so much into consideration : style —best style for certain skin tones, budget, personality of person wearing the jewelry. No budget is too small and I didn’t feel pressured or over my head or out of my price range. I returned twice during my stay and came away happy and adorned in just the right way.
There are so many jewelry stores in Athens and difficult to tell what is fine jewelry and the best prices. All my worries went away when I shopped here. I’m so pleased with my purchases and the prices and quality!
