From One end to the other, Ermou Street will give you a wonderful slice of Athens, at least for the tourist. Watch the changing of the guard to the exchanging of items at the flea market, it’s a wonderful mix.

Whilst it is true that Ermou is a typical city centre shopping street it is worth walking along it either to shop or every now and again you will see some historical building or church. The more upmarket shopping is not on Ermou street but...More

Very crowded and hard to navigate; however, you can find anything you would possibly like to buy here; the break dance performers were the best part of this whole adventure; and you can see how the city changes as you walk down to Monastirki

This is not a tourist destination, but it's a normal street in Athens. The street is full of shops and lots of people.

A nice pedestrian street connecting Syntagma square to Monastiraki square with shops and restaurants on the sides. Very popular place and a good place for shopping.

Ermou Street in my mind was a shopping mecca. In reality, it didn't meet the hype. Seemed like a typical tourist oriented street, like you find in many large cities. They obviously sell a lot of things, but it wasn't what I was looking for....More

One of the best areas of Athens. Many beautiful pedestrian streets in Ermou. Just start from Syntagma Square and go all the way to 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
