You can have a lovely walk at Ermou street and end up at beautiful kapnikarea church. You can shopping or for a coffee. Remember : things to be a bit pricey there but they are of great quality

This is it...the popular and upscale shopping at its best. Many specialty shops, boutiques, and delicious international shopping too...Lots of cafes and restaurants as well.

Near to everything, Ermou... More

The most famous place in Athens for shopping. Easy access by METRO and other public transportation, is a place where you can buy anything you need. Next to Plaka where you can see monuments of ancient Greece and also very close to the national garden of Athens

Nowhere near as nice as it looks online and closed on a Sunday. I know Greece has Sunday closing rules but tourist shops are open and this is a spot tourists head for. In the current economic climate they are missing out on badly needed revenue. As it is a pedestrian area it is probably still the best place to... More

This street is all about shopping. Like in every other big city in Europe. Most of the shops are also the same like in most cities of Europe. Nevertheless it's a fun street, with a good vibe.

Relaxed in the summer for some shopping of clothes. Took this shot in early evening on the way for dinner. Lady in the shot caught beautifully in the light.

This is a very mixed street that combines some standard brand shopping and antique and run down flea market style shops. It is definitely interesting and worth a look.

This street begins near Thissio metro station and goes up tp Sybtagma square passing by Monastiraki. It has plenty of places to shop and eat, it´s a long street but when walking and looking all the things we don´t get tired, it´s a pleasant walk.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
