Shop hours in Greece are extended during the holiday season to help people find time to get in all of their Christmas and New Year holiday shopping.
Christmas shopping hours in Athens start on December 15 this year and normal hours will resume on January 3, 2017 after the New Year holiday.
Shops will be open the two Sundays before Christmas.
On the Athens Coast, Glyfada is the shopping hub and they even have Christmas music playing on the streets to help get you into the holiday spirit!
As always, it is best to check with individual shops about their hours. Happy shopping!
