During our stay in the marvellous city we traversed the full extent of this varied fascinating street, from Kerameikos Archaeological Site to Syntagma. On the western side there are many mini street markets with bric-a-brac of all sorts on offer. Boxes of vinyl records were to be had, furthering the vinyl renaissance. Evidence of somewhat faded grandeur was to be seen with impressive buildings looking in need of attention. East of Monastiraki, on the way to Syntagma, we came across the gorgeous Church of Kapnikaréa. Lower than and in the middle of the street it makes for a lovely sight with its attractive stonework and red roof. It is a popular meeting place. Closer to Syntagma it becomes pedestrian only and high-end retail beckons. A colourful street fountain brightens this segment, just on arrival at the great square. Incidentally it’s at the junction of Ermou and the Square that the free shuttle bus regularly departs to magnificent SNFCC with the new Opera House, National Library and other attractions.

Ermou Street if a fun part of Athens if you need a break from all the (very interesting though) history. Yes, it's a shopping street you could see in many other cities, but there are still some fun shops, some brands you will only find here. And it's a nice trip to start at the Akropolis, get down through the Plaka Stairs (and grab a bite there), walk through the Monastiraki Flea Market and finally head onto Ermou Street, ending up at the Syntagma Square. It's a fun walk. Be sure to stop quick to enjoy the wonderful Kapnikarea Church on Ermou.

The Emou Street is considered to be the main shopping street in central Athens. The part of the street between the Monastiraki Square and the Syntagma Square (pedestrian area) is worth a visit. Forget about the other part, from Monastiraki Sq. to the West. You can find lots of small and bigger shops here as well as a department store of Marks & Specers and lots of restaurants in the side streeds.

Finally got to try a souvlaki and for 2.50 euro each, it was a good price. Many choices, almost overwhelming for a tourist, but in a good spot, clean restaurant. Nothing fancy and it's definitely more "street" style. They also offer discounted food to save for homeless people. You can buy a gyro for 2.00 euro and it will be saved for any homeless person wanting one. I don't know how the program personally works, but I thought it was a great gesture and I hope they are able to help out a lot of people.
