SHOPPING IN ATHENS

Athens is a city full of pleasant surprises for the shopper who is looking for unique purchases and good bargains. Gold and silver jewellery is a major area of interest, given the world famous unique Greek designs. The numerous jewellery shops, which you will find in the areas of Plaka, Syntagma, and Kolonaki, carry a wide selection of museum reproductions of ancient Greek pieces of jewellery, as well as traditional and fashionable ones. Most of them are handmade by local craftsmen.I would recommend the Ilias Lalaounis Jewellery museum. This Museum houses over 3,000 jewellery designs. Its 45 collections display the history of the Greek jewellery. Jewellery inspired by the art and architecture of eleven different civilizations, by nature, technology and biology. The Museum is located at the foot of the Acropolis. The place to look for the unique Greek ceramics and pottery is in the Peloponnese (Argolida). A couple of the designer ceramists and potters have shops there and they still make them in the traditional way (2500 years ago).
