Description

Here you are in Athens, this sprawling, chaotic, enticing city, with its rough-hewn lively urban character, wondering where to head off shopping. Let us give you a few insiders’ tips…

First of all, and take our word for it, you’ll need to keep shop opening hours in mind. Although opening hours are officially unregulated from Monday to Saturday (on Sundays all shops except pastry shops, wine and spirits shops, flower shops and emergency pharmacies, are closed), you’ll find that most businesses (with the exception of large department stores) adhere to the following opening hours:

Mon, Wed, Sat: 09:00-15:00.
Tue, Thu, Fri: 09:00-14:30 & 17:00-20:30.

All shops close on National Holidays. Souvenir shops and convenience stores operating around tourist sites are generally open longer hours, usually 09:00-23:00 every day.

Lycabettus Hill

 At 277 meters (908 feet) above sea level, the hill is the highest point in the city that surrounds it. Pine trees cover its base, and at its two peaks are the 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, and a restaurant.

The hill is a popular tourist destination and can be ascended by the Lycabettus Funicular, a funicular railway which climbs the hill from a lower terminus at Kolonaki (The railway station can be found at Aristippou street).
