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...

This is one of the main shopping street of central Athens. Its where you'll be the big stores and high-end brands. Not the top-end but a lot of mid-range brand stores. It is pedestrianised so its good for a wander. If you want to shop then its a good place to come but otherwise its nothing special.

This was by far the best and the most bustling street in Athens. It has the best of both worlds in a shopping mall and a street market rolled into one. Its great for people watching and absorbing all that's Greece.

We walked all the way from the Hera hotel (by the Acropolis museum) all the way to Ermou Street and really enjoyed the shopping and people watching. There are a couple of fabulous restaurants on Ermou Street that I have already reviewed and recommended.

This is a good shopping street in the centre of Athens, with "proper" shops (rather than the tat-rubbish shops found most everywhere else in Monastiraki). Take some time to wander down this street from Syntagma square to Avissynias square before heading on to the crazy Monastiraki flea market on Ifestou street.

Beautiful place to take a walk. Too many shops too many cafeterias and reastaurants. Most of them have great Design. Sometimes though is so crowdy but even then this street has something that makes you feel comfortable and nice. Going there is also very easy! With a Bus, metro or even walking from the Center of Athens is really so... More

I was in Athens the first week of March. All of the stores had their winter collections on sale. Ermou was the perfect walking/shopping street to find bargains and get something that no one back in the States would have. I found the sales people in the shops extremely helpful and not pushy. This was a big change from the... More

Staying in Monastiraki

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.
