Kolonaki is a trendy and expensive neighborhood in Athens. The streets around Kolonaki Square feature the most elegant boutiques in the city. The square itself (officially named Filikis Eterias) is the favorite meeting place of celebrities and other beautiful people. They can be seen hanging out any of Kolonaki's numerous cafés after a shopping spree or in the excellent gourmet restaurants and chic bars at night. Kolonaki lies on the slopes of Lykavittos Hill, the city's best vantage point. Many of the streets surrounding the square are excellent for exploring. Les Connoisseurs on Haritos sells gourmet food and kitchen accessories. On Kanari Street you'll find Makis Tselios (one of Greece's most famous fashion designers) and the three-story-tall Carouzos, selling high quality apparel.
