Xanthi's work is exceptional. She has managed to create art which pulsates with the spirit of Greece. A lovely, warm person. I bought some pieces and plan to get more!... More

Found this gallery with some effort but was well worth it! Ms Ioannidou is sweet and so talented. Mid-century modern look and so elegant! World class but affordable. I bought a great piece for 800 euro, which was a rather large size.....other pieces were as low as 150 and more than 2000.

My wife and I were on a half day tour and finished in the area last October. We can't resist to pop in the shop when we passed by the shop and saw the artworks from outside. We end up buying two artworks. The two artworks are now hanging in our living room and we just can't stop looking at... More

Ms Ioannidou is a wonderful artist. My daughter and I visited her gallery several years ago and I purchased a painting which Ms Ioannidou shipped for me. When my husband and I were touring Plaka in April 2015 we made a special effort for me to return to her gallery. Once we entered the gallery and she began to show... More

Mrs. Ioannidou welcomes you into her gallery and makes you feel at home. Her work is fantastic, and varied, so there is something for every taste. She is full of ideas and never stops exploring and creating. My husband and I have bought a number of paintings from her.

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.
