Shopping - Entertainment

The city’s central shopping area starts in front of the Greek Parliament at Syntagma Square and the nearby streets: Ermou, Stadiou, Panepistimiou, Voukourestiou; it includes all the narrow streets connecting the main streets and ends up at Omonia Square. There, you can find the best Greek and foreign designer clothes, jewelry, leather goods and many other goods. A walk around the shopping centre of Athens offers fantastic shopping experience!

The same goes for Kolonaki, an old aristocratic part of the city, next to Syntagma Square, with its splendor and exquisite trendy clothing suggestions. There are also numerous shops in every part of the city, selling hand made jewelry and trinkets, books, flowers, decorative material e.t.c. as long as one knows where and how to look for them. When it is time to stop for a cup of coffee or a refreshment, for a meal or just to catch one’s breath, there will always be a stylish little bistro nearby.

In case your taste is for something completely different… 30΄away, Athens beaches are there for a swim and a drink of ouzo… There are also many archeological sites, parks, vineyards and farms on the outskirts of Athens for you to visit. Within a couple of hours’ drive there are the mountain or sea side resorts of Attica and Saronicos Bay, ideal for one-day excursions, a quiet weekend or summer vacation with your family. For those of you who love sports and action, you may take part in excursions, sports competitions or “alternative” escapes with a group, sailing, diving and climbing, or you can even join speleological expeditions that really worth your while. If you‘re a fan of sports like riding, tennis, golf and sea sports… there’s no problem! You may even go skiing or rafting if you wish!

The mountains outside Attica are within a few hours’ drive. Outside the city limits lies the rest of Attica, with its own people and character, which attracts many of the city people who choose to live in the country and work in the city.
