This street begins near Thissio metro station and goes up tp Sybtagma square passing by Monastiraki. It has plenty of places to shop and eat, it´s a long street but when walking and looking all the things we don´t get tired, it´s a pleasant walk.

Ermou Street is boasting with shops. During the Greek financial crisis though most shops have closed or changed ownership. It is good to take a walk in this street and get down to Monastiraki or up to Syntagma square.

If you are interested in luxury and shopping you should see it. I saw that there's H&M, Zara etc. It's not as long as Paris Champs Elysee Street but it makes you feel you are in a different place in Athens

Walk the street. Shop. People watch. Eat. Drink. This place is super busy, and there's a lot to do. It's a cultural experience.

A busy street where you can buy peoples used junk. It was fun to see, but it also made me think of the economic crisis, because I would have to be very poor in order to buy anthing here.

I went for a stroll just to see what there was and ended up buying yet another made in Greece dress. You can bargain a little bit.

A lot of shops in this quite long pedestrian Street, all major brands are represented. On the site streets restaurants and cozy bars are available. The downside of this street is that a lot of poor people living in this street and bagging.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
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.
