After hearing for years about Ermou that it's the place to go when you come to Athens I was very disappointed. The shops were very commercialised and I wouldn't buy something that I can buy from back home. The most disappointing thing was all the...More

This shopping street can be found in any other European city. Crowded and noisy. Nice shops but the same typical chains; Zara, h&m, massimo dutti etc. BUt the shoe shops seems tone more unique. .

The part of Ermou Street close to Syntagma is a pedestrian shopping area. A church is worth seeing: the Panaghia Kapnikaréa Church is a unique Byzantine-style architecture (11th century).

All the shopping you need in Athens is centered in that street. Some cafe to have a break along the way. Great shops on both sides of this no-cars street. 👍👍👍

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...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...More

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
