You can take the metro to either Syntagma og Monastiraki, and follow the street either way. It has a lots of shops, such as: h&m, Tally Weillj, Bershka, Stradivarious, MAC, BodyShop etc. You'll find anything here. The prices are ok. Go there early, it's crowded after 4pm. :)

If you want the chic and the latest fashion, this is the street. Filled with shops, street musicians and food carts, this is the place to shop.

Ermou is named after the god Hermes, the protector of trade. The trade here though, consists mostly of things that you can find somewhere else. It may be worth a quick walk if it is on the way to another place, but you are better off spending time in Plaka or somewhere else. TIP: The best place here is the... More

We (a couple) had a chance to walk through Ermou street one sunny afternoon of August. It is probably not the best time to walk there, due to the fact that it is extremely hot, and you definitely need sunglasses in order to be able to see around. However, we made it to walk all the way through the popular... More

Between French shops (DPAM, Sephora) and international shops (Zara, H&M, Benetton, etc) there is nothing different from any other European capital and it is not that clean, so definitely not the 'upscale' shopping described in my guidebook!

Another shopping street here in Athens, I say a little similar to the others and certainly not among the most beautiful in the city . Perhaps the only reason to come to visit this road is the presence of the beautiful church ''the Little Mitropolis Church'' a really fascinating old orthodox church . After that, only simple shops and a... More

We stayed in Plaka so it was a short (~2 min) walk to Ermou Street. My hubby was tired from our day of walking and sightseeing so I headed out by myself to Ermou and didn't come back for hours! All my favorite stores (H&M and Zara) along with so many more local and international favorites! There are 2 of... More

We stayed in a loft on ermou street. Loved this location. Pedestrian only street with to a of shops, restaurants - and a beautiful old Byzantine church right in the middle of it. Spent a lot time wandering this buzzing area.
