Omonia Square used to be a better place before. Now it is not safe to be there, as many migrants, drug users, etc. are roaming around. There are cafes, restaurants and shops, but be careful if you go there !

The Omonoia square has changed quite a bit in the year but still retains its purpose. It is the center of Athens and a place where you will find infinite coffee, restaurants and shopping!!!

There is nothing special to do or to see here only buldings. So for me you can just avoid this place and go around Athens to see more.

This square was where I would stay for some peace and just watch people go by. There is a little outdoor cafe where the hop on hop off buses stop. The gyros were great, very nice staff. You can sit drink your coffee or beer....More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
