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.
This is part of the Roman Forum, lots to see and here but for us we were excited to see this place. There is a great view of part of Athens and also the Acropolis in the back ground. The rest of the forum was great too you can walk around and explore at your own pace, lines to buy...
This is a 20th century reconstruction but all these columns still pretty to look at. There were also lot of sculptures and statues, part of the Museum of Ancient Agora. All in all worth a visit, and great view of the Ancient Agora from the 2nd floor.
A good street for a stroll, views, drinks and meals. Gets more crowded towards evenings. On the other side historic Athens, with a metro line reminding of modern times. Easy to find a table in one of the many different types of restaurants in the area
It was fun to walk on the Ermou street. The are many of the usual chain stores but also some interesting local stores. It is always easy to step away from the shopping street and visit one of the many restaurants in the adjacent blocks.
Another place that is filled with history here in Ancient Greece that is also part of your ticket to the Acropolis. Very nice site to see though not much remains from years ago but still important to see.
We stopped here for lunch during a recent trip to Athens. They had a baby seat available, which was a major factor in our decision. We sat on the patio, which had a view over some excavated ruins. Service was very fast, our drinks arrived almost immediately and the food a short time later. Both dishes, souvlaki and stuffed roast...
Been there recently for a morning coffee as we were staying in this area.
It’s a nice place to sit and have a good coffee (inside is trendy as well). Service is friendly and their prices in the morning are ridiculously low! It was 1.2eur per espresso before 9am (or take away price)!
They have nice breakfast options too which...
Lovely decor. Friendly service and most importantly...delicious food!!
It’s like stepping into the witches house. The smell is amazing and your eyes hurt with an explosion of colour!
A must do in Athens
Located in a center of Athens, very easy to reach key places, restauranta and bars. Spollati bar just below the hotel. Friendly reception staff, clean rooms, enough comfort to sleep.Price is reasonable for such a great location.
Nice, small hotel in the centre of Athens, near the main shopping road, Ermou Street and Monastiraki Metro Station. Clean, nicely decorated rooms with 6 ft comfortable bed. Breakfast, included in the nightly rate, which was a bit expensive, is served at the L'Atelier bar on the ground floor. Very good breakfast and the person serving it, Evridiki, is one...
