I don't normally go in for souvenir shopping areas, but his one is really good. There are lots of choices regarding what to buy and the quality of the items in sale is generally very good. Worth a look.

They call you to come look at their wares a little pushy over eager to help. The pickpocket feel is true know where your items are some shady selling going on. Pay attention and it is a fun experience.

The street of Pandrosou is the oldest commercial street in Athens. It dates since the Ottoman's era. The street is narrow and colorful, full of touristic shops with memorabilia. However it is usually full of people. So be careful of pick pickpockets.

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
