The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

In the midst of buzzy Monastiraki, the Museum of Greek Folk Art is an absolute treasure trove served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Beautiful, original items that are a joy to behold and which make splendid mementos and gifts. Warmly recommended.

While the Greek Folk Art Museum remains closed, this small shop offers a wide variety of excellent contemporary crafts for sale. The merchandise is quite different from the items for sale in the tourist shops in the area. It's worth the time to give it a look.
