This shop has beautiful items made from olive tree wood. We bought a bread board with unique characteristics and were able to negotiate a 20% discount. Such a great memento of Athens and great value compared to similar products available in London England. Definitely worth a visit.

I love this store!!! Unique gifts made of beautiful olive wood at very reasonable prices. There are other olive wood stores in Plaka but they simply do not compare!! The owner Petros is very customer orientated and provides great advice about the products he sells. We bought a pair of the new range of sunglasses, a brilliant olive wood pen... More

The Olive Tree is a small store full of knick knacks from full size electric guitars to carved watches to the more traditional souvenirs and kitchen implements. If you can't find something to buy (all made by the owner) then you aren't looking hard enough. We were pleased that good quality, affordable non-tacky souvenirs are readily available in this store,... More

We first stumbled across this shop a week earlier when exploring Athens. The gifts in this store are not the tacky tourist souvenirs which are everywhere in the Plaka district. We fell in love with the olive wood villages. These were a single piece of olive wood hand-carved into a 3 dimensional village. The artist from Peloponnese only sells these... More

Not a fan of tacky souvenir shops, and was looking for something more original. Discovered this little shop in the Plaka district, under the view of the Acropolis. Gifts are handmade from olive trees. They have jewelry, decor, kitchen utensils, and even a guitar! The man was very nice, and cured my brain cramp when I was about to buy... More

These beautifully made olive wood pieces from this quaint little shop would have to be the best in Athens. The owner was so helpful, friendly and very patient as I couldn't make up my mind with so many choices. Am so happy with our purchases..they are of such good quality and workmanship at very reasonable prices.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
