Full description
On this tour you will have the chance to explore the two most important shopping areas in the city. In Kolonaki, the city’s most expensive neighborhood, there’s always a feeling of indulgence combined with style. Here, you’ll drop in on clothing boutiques that stand out from the crowd, not just because of how their product lines look, but also because of how their products are made and what they’re made from. Organic, reused, and recycled materials are definitely in this year. You’ll also explore pioneers in cosmetics, including a company run by former pharmacists who combine Greek philosophy with natural ingredients. Later on you'll have a chance to taste a highlight of the Greek food tradition with a visit to a local deli that specializes in foods that make up the Mediterranean diet. Experience Greek food right here on the shores of the Aegean. In the center of town, after a stop for coffee and a visit to a museum gift shop that promotes new designers by exhibiting and selling their work, you’ll visit a pair of jewelry shops where brand new designs are constantly being created, often with the use of unexpected new materials. By the time this tour is finished, you’ll know more about where Greek fashion and the Greek aesthetic are headed, and there’s a very good chance you’ll have picked up more than just one new piece for your wardrobe.
