This street is definately for shopaholics. You can find very expensive and cheap shops as well. The street is not so long and it is also a good option to walk along during the evening/night.

At roughly a kilometre long, Ermou Street might not be the most glamourous address in Athens but it seems to be a good place for friends, couples or families to stroll or hang out. The eastern end is almost an extension of Syntagma Square, and at least for several hundred metres, is an interesting mix of retail outlets (including good... More

I really liked Ermou. It is a busy and vibrant Street with more shops than you could ever need. It is pedestrianised too which makes it easy to linger. It runs straight up to Syntagma from Monastiraki with all its eateries. I'm not particularly interested in shopping to be honest but what I liked about Ermou was its Bohemian feel... More

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!!

This is an area to shop and eat food. Lots of souvenir shops and variety of restaurants. Some stores are pretty pricey and beware of hustler.

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

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood 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.
