This a large open square with restaurants shops and is a good place to sit and people-watch. On one side of the square is the Athens Town Hall, and in the middle are fountains. Ancient street remains are there to view. A very pleasant place.

Unsafe and criminal place during late hours , especially outside the summer season. Groups are safe however wondering around there alone at night is a recipe for a bad time. Summer seasons are safer because streets are more crowded and more guarded as well. The...More

Many people just chilling. It seemed a little touristy. I personally did not see the excitement to hang out here. It was clean though.

If you are into archeology and history you may find this square more interesting that I found it. It is a regular touristy square, a lot of little shops selling souvenirs, cafes, snack shops etc. There is some greenery, but during the month of July...More

Kotzia is a Square with history. There is an archaeological site right on top of it! There is a bust of one of the most famous Athenian statesmen, Pericles, there, and the "Town Hall" building is just across the road. There are several Metro stations...More

Omonia
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
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
