All reviews flea market metro station antique shops busy square souvlaki street vendors pick pockets hadrian's library t shirts tourist shops great shopping narrow streets ancient agora walk around souvenirs pickpockets acropolis
Lots of bustling, noise and action from the train station to the ancient cathedral. Just stand there and take it all in....herods library over your shoulder and then Ermou Street decked out with all the fringes.
What a wonderful atmosphere around Monastriki Square. Our Hotel was nearby and we just wandered around. So many restaurants to choose from. Take care when crossing roads!! If only there was someone in the ticket office for the metro - machines difficult to navigate!!
Near to acropolis. You can find here a lot of small gift shops. In the weekend is here the biggest flea market in the town. Has good metro connection to every direction. The bibloteque of Hadrianus is at a stone thowe away.
Monastiraki located at the city, the metro station can easily and conveniently access to the airport and Syntagma. A short distance to many Acropolis sites and plenty and shops and eateries. A great place for tourists.
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.
I would not buy one in Monastiriki. Maybe worth calling the Greek embassy here in the US for advice. Athens is great! Have a fantastic time! Sunday is flea market day in Monastiriki if you like shopping antiques but be... More
I would not buy one in Monastiriki. Maybe worth calling the Greek embassy here in the US for advice. Athens is great! Have a fantastic time! Sunday is flea market day in Monastiriki if you like shopping antiques but be wary of fakes.
All regular stores are closed in Greece on Sunday. But the stores, restaurants, coffee shops are open on Sundays in Monastiraki all year around at least until late afternoon as this is the main tourist area,
