Busy pedestrian street (well, most of it is pedestrian) - Lots of shops, lots of cafes and lots of people. Always something going on and street artists everywhere. Not the best shopping area in Athens but certainly in the top 10. Worth visiting and when you do....go off on the smaller streets on the side and you can even more... More

Ermou street is a pedestrian street (partially) where shops & restaurants are along its two sides. It is a crowded attraction point where you can spend a whole day in shopping, dining & relaxing from Athens traffic. This street is full of life, everything in it reflects the Greek true face.

The heart of the shopping area in the center of Athens! window shopping first and then...shopping therapy! Go inside the Kapnikarea church, light a candle and see one of the olest temples of Athens!

There are interesting shops to visit along this pedestrianized street. It is also a nice place for people watching. I especially like visiting after dark.

During a recent visit to Athens we walked along Ermou Street a number of times. This is one of the main central streets in the city - great fro shopping and entertainment and it runs from Syntagma Square down through Monastiraki. Highly recommended.

we love shopping, that's why we rented apartment just 30m from the center of Ermou. We spent 7 days in Athens, and of course, 1 day spared for shopping only. I can't say it's cheap or expensive, it depends on your shopping habits in your country...

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
