It's the most known street of Plaka, downtown in Athens. A picturesque place to be, with many shops, cafes, tavernas and restaurants, under the Acropolis. Very close to metro stations and archaeological sites.

Great street in Plaka with lots of excellent, lively restaurants and cafes. Lots of craft and souvenir stalls too. Great view of the adjacent Agora. Very touristy though so the prices are a bit steep for food, not desperately so but nonetheless you'll get better value elsewhere. But if you don't mind paying a tad more you can drink in... More

Feeling you're walking under the Acropolis, next to this inspiring monument, yet wanting to buy all this goodies, taste all the food, wear all these clothes and jewellery :) A true touristic street like no other!

The street that always pass by when I am visiting Athens. This is the area that I like to walk and enjoy the beauties of Athens. We walk from Acropolis to Monastiraki via Plaka and then we pass Andrianou street in order to go to Thisio. From the one side of the street you can see the ancient monuments and... More

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood 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.
