Also Zara, H and M, Mango etc. There are also some good places to eat around here. It's a lovely place to hang out and walk around in... More

Unusual collection of name brand and local stores for shopping. Pedestrian only venue with cobble stone streets and some street vendors offering roasted corn on the cob and nuts. A nice shady spot to take a break.

Very disappointed in the array of shops. Good for a nice stroll but not much there to entice you in to most of them. Not even a very interesting selection of food choices. But there were LOTS of people walking along with me so maybe they had more interest than I. Worth a stroll - but not for shopping.

A lovely street to stroll down and ponder on possible purchases. And of course you can find all sorts of fast food and souvenirs Nice to see major shops mostly closed on Sundays but of course there's the flea market to browse around......loved it

The main shopping street of Athens. Not many upper class shops but in the heart of old Athens. Many restaurants and shops in the area.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood 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.
