Official miniatures are great souvenirs of your trip to Greece.
Take home a copy of what you liked most
It might seem cliché, but miniature copies of the things you like most in Athens are one of the best things you can take home from the city, as a gift or a souvenir. There are countless shops selling all kinds of replicas in all different colours. Thanks to the wide variety of replicas on offer, some really are great pieces of art in their own right. When looking around, you'll see that many of them have a gold label meaning they are authorised copies, made according to official standards and in exact proportion of the original. However, at any market or bazar you'll find similarly detailed, handcrafted replicas that are also very beautiful. These handcrafted treasures are often made from wood.
