It's worth a stroll for the people watching and window shopping. Fairly normal Athens shopping though. If you don't walk this route on purpose you will on accident. Enjoy.

A nice pedestrian street connecting Syntagma square to Monastiraki square with shops and restaurants on the sides. Very popular place and a good place for shopping.

Ermou Street in my mind was a shopping mecca. In reality, it didn't meet the hype. Seemed like a typical tourist oriented street, like you find in many large cities. They obviously sell a lot of things, but it wasn't what I was looking for....More

One of the best areas of Athens. Many beautiful pedestrian streets in Ermou. Just start from Syntagma Square and go all the way to Monastiraki.

A narrow pedestrian street connecting Syntagma and Monastiraki squares. Shopping on either side, many however are cheap or unknown brands. Cafes on small streets that branch off from the main drag. If you're expecting some semblance to Barcelona's La Rambla, London's Carnaby Street, or Milan's...More

Road has Syntagma square in the top part, and along it the usual brand of shops you find in every other major city. Went into M&S, which was overpriced and empty of customers. Another major no no was the dogs that seemed to be draipsed...More

Another European shopping street but not as nice as most of them. Nothing special about it. Many people, popular brand stores.

We had heard about the famous Ermou Shopping Street and went there to check it out, full of high expectations. Disappointing area! There are lots of people there, sharing the rather narrow street with too many cars, but apart from some interesting shops, there is...More

Monastiraki
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
