    It really depends on what you expect to see - we knew this was an active local market, not a market specific for tourists, so we were fine when we saw the meat stalls, the small restaurants with locals frequenting etc.
    On the outside of the market, there are a number of stalls selling nuts, snacks etc which may be of interest to some tourists. Not really a souvenir place though...

    If in Athens, a do not miss is Pandora Art Gallery in Plaka! Every piece in this gallery is amazing. I purchased two clay sculptures made by a legendary local Athenian artist. The pieces were shipped to my home in the US in pristine condition. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Unique, quality art at very reasonable prices.

    We always pick up a small watercolour or watercolour reproduction of places we travel as keepsakes. We spied this shop in the Plaka in Athens and thought it would be perfect as it had a very large selection of offerings from large to small. It could be overwhelming to choose because there are so many beautiful images to choose from. The owner saw our dilemma and offered to help. In a matter of no time, he showed us an image in the size we were looking for that was EXACTLY right. What we liked is that he was helpful without trying to force a sale and treated out 7 euro purchase with gratitude. What a lovely man. Please stop by and browse his shop. Worth the visit!

    Our experience with The Sofokli Art Gallery was a very positive one indeed. After my husband and I had looked for several years to find a painting we both liked and which would suit the wall where we intended to hang it, we stumbled across this gallery 2 hours before we were due at the airport for our homeward flight.
    We were thrilled with the outstanding service we received from the gallery manager. Nothing was too much trouble. Her caring attitude as well as her efficiency to attending to all the logistics were much appreciated.
    The painting arrived in Australia, as promised, several days later and the secure packaging ensured that no damage was done to the painting in transit.
    Now we have a beautiful piece of art that hangs on our wall and has already been widely admired by both family and friends. It is our little bit of Greece and our constant reminder of the wonderful holiday we had there.

    Walking around ancient Athens we stumbled into a small art installation by accident - it was right in front of Ioannidou Art Gallery. We were amazed how authentic and genuine Xanthia’s works are. The artist and owner was there and welcomed us warmly. It was a short but very memorable highlight of our trip (magic is everywhere)

    The BEST EVER! OMG, if you are in the market for leather shoes, purses, and duffle bags this is the place. I purchased two handbags and two pair of sandals (all genuine leather made in Greece) for 206 Euros (duty free). The customer service was excellent, no high pressure sales or gouging. Love it!!!😍

    A Tourist Trap but worth walking through to buy souvenirs and other items to bring home. This is a walking flea market and Hadrian's Library, Ancient Agora and Temple of Hephaestus are all in this Square. Worth seeing. Right off Ermou Street. The attractions cost to enter and didn't seem worth it, you can easily just take pictures through the fences.

    Visiting Orlik Gallery was an exceptional experience! From the moment I stepped in, I was greeted warmly by the staff who provided me with personalized attention throughout my visit. The gallery's collection is truly impressive, showcasing a diverse range of artwork that captivated my senses. Each piece seemed to have its own story to tell, and I found myself immersed in the beauty and creativity on display. The ambiance of the gallery is serene and inviting, creating the perfect environment for art appreciation. I highly recommend Orlik Gallery to art enthusiasts and anyone looking for a memorable cultural experience.

    Currently there is an expedition of the artist giorgos pantazis. He was very open minded while I commended his art. The place is amazing and they offered me wine and strawberries. I recommend to visit it if you are around, and consider the room to show your art.

    Great shop, super customer service. We've bought and shipped rugs to France, and we bring our friends through every time we are in Athens. They've shipped also to the US, never a problem.
    If you want that special carpet, this is the place

    We visited here 3 years ago and bought some earrings and a wedding ring for my husband, which they later posted home for us. Recently my husband lost this ring and we were able to get the item remade. Ersi was so helpful and kept us up to date with the quote and postage. I still love the earrings I bought and would make these guys a must visit when I am in Athens again. The gallery itself was fresh and interesting and going by the ongoing artist exhibitions always offering something different.

    Not sure where this area/street starts and ends. In the old part of town full of shops selling everything a tourist is looking for. Some nice little bars and restaurants
