Our Neighbourhood


You will find us under the Acropolis Hill, just above the Koukaki district. It is one of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city and  an area well worth exploring. It will reward you with many examples of 19th and 20th century athenian architecture, restaurants, quiet cafès, small businesses, hotel units, shops and art spaces. One of the loveliest walks in the city is along Dionysiou Aeropagitou pedestrian street having the Acropolis hill right above you. From its one side it leads you to the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch and towards the historic neighbourhood of Plaka, all through to the main Highstreet of Ermou and the Monastiraki area where your journey of commercial and culinary experience continues and many ancient, byzantine and contemporary Athenian landmarks are situated all around. From its other side it takes you to the Philopappou hill and the Thission, right in the heart of where the ancient athenian everyday life evolved with a spread of archaeological sites to give you an idea.
Our shop is on a building of neoclassical and art deco details and is adjoined across its two sides by the Ilias Lalaounis Jewellery Museum and a modernist school complex which was  considered progressive in its time.
