This a large open square with restaurants shops and is a good place to sit and people-watch. On one side of the square is the Athens Town Hall, and in the middle are fountains. Ancient street remains are there to view. A very pleasant place.

If you are into archeology and history you may find this square more interesting that I found it. It is a regular touristy square, a lot of little shops selling souvenirs, cafes, snack shops etc. There is some greenery, but during the month of July...More
