So the graffiti is back up to full blast by Ermou Street, but there are lots of interesting shops. Named for the god of merchants, Hermes, every Greek city has a Ermou Street for the main business area. This street is also good for getting your bearings. A pedestrian mall at the top near Syntagma, it becomes a trafficked street... More

This strip of road goes for about a kilometre and has all the massive brand names for men and women - excellent prices and good vibe - be sure to make room in your suitcase

This closed street was very busy with mostly upscale woman's stores. So I am saying if your a Male take in a sidewalk cafe, scroll the IPAD while your Lady shops. The Many hotels in the area are convenient and within easy walk to the very nice flea markets also and tour getaway points at Syntagma Square.

Ermou street is my favorite place to go shopping! So many shops, so many brands and the best thing of all? Plenty cafes among the stores to take a break, refuel and go back to the shops.

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.

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.
