Welcome to Attica, where eating and shopping are part of the magic. By eating, we don’t mean grabbing a sandwich for lunch, but enjoying a two-hour meal, and by shopping, we don’t mean buying groceries, but wandering in vibrant, colourful bazaars with hidden treasures, strolling along bustling commercial streets in the city or scenic narrow roads on the islands for brand shopping or imaginative, unique souvenirs, and marvelling at stunning jewellery and designers’ storefronts in beautiful neighbourhoods.

At first, in Athens you should arm yourselves with courage and a pair of comfortable shoes, and let your mind do the walking first. Wear a pair of comfortable shoes, summon all your shopping energy and prepare for a memorable experience.

The fact is that our daily rituals often become fascinating activities when we are tourists in an exotic country. Eating a meal or shopping for essentials are exciting trips in themselves, enlivened by the freshness of the city and the people around us.

For the avid or even the occasional shopper, no place holds more temptations than Athens and the other main cities of Attica. Visitors have a wealth of shopping options – everything from a leisurely stroll along commercial streets and high-end malls to a chance for diverse, alternative entertainment.

Shopping in and around Athens features: Ermou and the surrounding area; the three major marketplaces of the city: Kolonaki, Kifissia and Glyfada; and more than 10 shopping malls spread all over the capital and the surrounding towns. Not to mention the traditional outdoor marketplaces found throughout Attica. And then, there is the islands, where the notion of “shopping experience” takes on a whole new meaning.

Whatever your style, budget or taste, one thing is for sure – Athens can cater to a whole world of shoppers.
