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.

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.
