For the more exclusive shopper

The Kolonaki neighbourhood covers the area between Syntagma Square and Mount Lycabettus. Its name comes from a column in the middle of the area that divides it into two sections. Kolonaki has remained the most exclusive neighbourhood in Athens for decades. Many famous people, from sports stars to politicians, have houses here. The neighbourhood also has its own golden mile for those with the desire, and the means, to hit the shops. All the most famous names in clothing, accessories and fine dining can be found here. To explore this area, we recommend starting at Syntagma Square and finishing at Mount Lycabettus. This way, you'll finish with a great view of the whole city, giving you a good idea of the general layout.
