home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most

couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
