This is an edgier, colorful neighborhood at the center of which is the is the Monasteraki train station and square. During the day there's a market outside and at night it's a meeting place for young people. Around it are small pedestrian alleys with souvenir shops and flea market. You can also find many tiny streets filled with great graffiti and some more questionable characters, so watch out for you bag and wallets in there. At night the place is buzzing with people and there are lots of bars where young people come to party.

In sight of the acropolis site in the square and watch the world go by before walking to the close by the central Plaka. Litterally 5 minutes away you find tiny square bustling with art life and tiny shops to browse at leisure in shade.

It's a different area to the centre and Plaka - as well as wome tourist shops and restaurants there's also the Flea Market and some local traders in antiques and collectables. The more you wander around the more you see,

Be aware of pick pockets here! Great for souvenir shopping, but I found it to be very dirty and people constantly trying to get you in their stores or begging for money. No seating unless you go into a restaurant. DO visit Cafe Veneti in the square for some amazing bakery treats and coffee though!

Just by happenstance we discovered this flea market and we spent a wonderful couple of hours just perusing the interesting stalls.
