Today we will all be going on a deep dive into where you can buy cameras and take photos in Athens. Additionally we will try to cover as much as possible on a wide range of related subtopics.
There probably isn’t a better way for us to kick this off than to list the best local photographers for when you need wedding pictures, graduation pictures, or want to capture memories at any special events. Once they have been discussed in detail we will move on to photo printing whether you want to print something off your phone, get a passport photo, need digital marketing materials, or whatever type of printing you might need will be discussed before we pivot to photography studios.
Taking lessons at the best photography classes in your area is a great way to “develop your skills,’ sorry but that corny joke just wrote itself. Even if there aren’t many left these days the best places to buy cameras and repair shops near you will also be discussed. Don’t be surprised if these stores also sell new lenses, cleaning supplies, covers, stands, and more equipment and accessories.
A list of places to take beautiful pictures and selfies will definitely get a shout out plus there will be some quick lists for where to buy some loosely related items like camera phones or security cameras. Many of the places we mention could theoretically go in a few of our lists but we will do our best to put the right shops in the right place and let you know when a place can handle multiple needs.
Expect to find a map for the area towards the end of the post to help you figure out where all the Athens camera and photo places we list can be found. And you are all welcome to look through more of our posts on the region at that link if interested.

Best Places For Selfies
There are plenty of places to take beautiful selfies in your area and some of our favorite would be:
- Ancient Agora of Athens
- National Garden
- Filopappou Hill
The Ancient Agora of Athens is a famous landmark featuring the ruins of an ancient Greek gathering place and a museum with artifacts. You can find a large historic park with native and exotic plants, archeological remains, a children’s library, and some of the best spots to take selfies near you at The National Garden.
Filopappou Hill offers great views of the whole city, the Acropolis, and the Aegean sea surrounding Attica. The Parthenon was mainly constructed between 447 and 432 as a temple for Goddess Athena when the Delian league was at the peak of its power.
Let’s be honest, in a historic city like this it won’t be hard to find lots of great local photo opportunities.
