If there is one shop to go and get fully stocked up before you travel home, this is the place. Part wine cava, part sweet heaven, Matsoukas is an Athenian institution. Stock up on your Metaxa (Greek brandy) and glyka koutaliou (Greek preserved fruits jarred in sugary syrup). I challenge you to leave without a baklava for the road.
