The main shopping street of Athens which takes you don't to Monastiraki square. Many very good restaurant, bars, snack bars along the way or nearby. Very famous street among locals.

A great pedestrian thoroughfare just off Syntagma Square and leading up to Monastiraki. While many of the shops can be found anywhere in the world, there are many good cafes and restaurants to explore.

If you are into shopping and eating, this is a must visit street. You will see crowds of people strolling in the evening as Ermou st is full of shops, restaurants and carts with food. Prices in the shops are OK but I could get most of the things they sell at home for the same or lower prices. However,... More

This street is great if you really want to shop for things you can get almost anywhere. All the name brand stores were here, and there was nothing unique about it. It was nice to stroll and stop for coffee, but my vacation time is too precious to spend in shops just like home!

I was dissapointed with this street. Although it has quite a few name brand stores it is crowded and dirty. I felt I could get the same things at home for less and don't have use up my valuable baggage space. There are cafes that are nice if you need to have coffee or lunch.

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. :)

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
