I stayed in Kolonaki and the area has an upscale feel to it, with the mix of branded shops, dining restaurants and bars. A nice area of Athens for a stroll and check out the shops, with the streets lines with orange trees. It's hilly...More

A small square, named after a column that has been left since ancient times. There is nothing interesting here, and around the square there are many shops and cafes.

This is a nice area with luxurious shops and posh bistros. It is a pleasant area with a nice atmosphere and a place to have drinks after a day of meetings, or if you want to spend a nice evening in Athens.

There’s nothing particular about Kolonaki square. A few outdoor cafes and restaurants with lots of people hanging out there: a typical Greek piazza.

Great place to eat/drink during the day as you watch the world go by, busy coffee shops, bars & restaurants. The place comes alive at night and is very lively in parts, especially in/outside the bar restaurants, quieter restaurants are also close by.

This is further east of Syntagma, we walked up here. The area looks bit upscale and elite. There's nothing specific for tourists here. Can be skipped.

We'd read that this was one of the must see squares, but wasn't really for us. If you like shopping this would be a great area, but for us, this was not a highlight. The park in the square is nice and quiet, and was...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
