What we love in Athens is that it never stops surprising you!

It always hides a gem and awaits you to discover it! Something like that happende to us while walking in our favorite athens city center! We discoverd a little travel bookstore, a little gem, just a few meters from Ermou street! It is the travel bookstore “ANAVASI – MAPS” located in the center of Athens, in one of its most crowded neighborhoods!

The publishing – cartographic company Anavasi was created in 1997 by people with deep knowledge of the Greek countryside. Their aim is to provide the travelers, the hikers and the designers of Greece the best possible material both in terms of quality and reliability! The Anavasimaps Bookstore has a rich database of cartographic data and a long-lasting experience in mapping and designing all kinds of thematic maps, specializing in inland and island hiking maps because of the great love of the people behind this beautiful corner of the center for climbing.

Apart from maps, printed and digital (download pdf maps is a free app, available on iTunes and the Play Store), and travel guides at Anavasimaps bookstore you will find, or better you will discover, a lot of great gifts to give to your beloved ones!
