We (a couple) had a chance to walk through Ermou street one sunny afternoon of August. It is probably not the best time to walk there, due to the fact that it is extremely hot, and you definitely need sunglasses in order to be able to see around. However, we made it to walk all the way through the popular... More

Between French shops (DPAM, Sephora) and international shops (Zara, H&M, Benetton, etc) there is nothing different from any other European capital and it is not that clean, so definitely not the 'upscale' shopping described in my guidebook!

Another shopping street here in Athens, I say a little similar to the others and certainly not among the most beautiful in the city . Perhaps the only reason to come to visit this road is the presence of the beautiful church ''the Little Mitropolis Church'' a really fascinating old orthodox church . After that, only simple shops and a... More

We stayed in Plaka so it was a short (~2 min) walk to Ermou Street. My hubby was tired from our day of walking and sightseeing so I headed out by myself to Ermou and didn't come back for hours! All my favorite stores (H&M and Zara) along with so many more local and international favorites! There are 2 of... More

This is a domed shaped church in the middle of this shopping street which is famous in Athens and visited by both tourists and locals alike. The church is a Byzantine church with a dome dedicated to the Persecution of the Virgin Mary. Constructed in the 11th century and completed in the 13th century. In 1834, Ermou street was constructed.... More

If you have 2-3 hours to spend and you like walking, than this is the place to start. Late in the afternoon 2-3 hours before the sun sets, start from Syntagma square in front of the parliament and take a walk towards Monastiraki taking your time to look around at the old buildings and buy something from the wide of...
