Everything you need , you can find it here. There are expensive and less expensive shops. Coffee shops in every corner . Its a nice walk in the centre of Athens from Syntagma square to Thisio and from there you can continue your walk to Akropolis.

Wonderful shopping and food shops and all very reasonable in price. Great quality leather shoes. Main tourist spot and wonderful feel for local Greek culture. Locals and tourists spill out onto chairs on the cobbled streets. Loved it!!

Has all the High Street names. Did seem to specialize in shoe shops. Visited on a Sunday. Most the the shops were closed. Great for me.

A lot of people. it is worth only for shopping. If you want something cheaper i advice you to go to an outlet. The big brands their have prices similar to your country. Prefer smaller shops. Be careful with your money due to the lot of people their.

We spent a fair amount of time walking around the Thissio end of this street because we were staying near the Thissio metro and I really didn't think that end of Ermou Street was very attractive at all - full of bric a brac and cheap second hand type stores and not pedestrianized. The nicer part is after you get... More

Heaven for shoppers. You will find all the major stores here...Zara, H&M, Nike, Adidas, Hondos Centre, Marks & Spencer etc. Its a pedestrian only zone which is great. Word of warning though, they do not open on Sundays.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
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.
