If you have the time, pop into this beautiful little church and check it out. It is on Ermou Street, actually the square, so chances are you will be near it at some point and you can miss it. There are usually people just outside...More

My wife and I were here, just walking around Hadrian's Library and came across this little church, which looked really nice. Unfortunately, we were told we could NOT take photos inside. Shame really, and I don't think they had postcards either.

We stumbled across this delightful little Church while visiting the Orthodox Churches. Lovely place to spend time, especially in the fall. The docent was so gracious, even though we had a bit of communication issues.The Greeks are amazing, definitely friendly, and very delightful people!

So interesting to see this very old 11th century church in the midst of the main shopping area of Ermou Street. We didn't go in but probably should have.

We loved this little church while sightseeing around the Monasteraki area. A great impression of what the old Orthodox Churches looked like.

This small historical church is located right in the middle of a bustling shopping area. Once you enter, you will see signs that request no photography and no touching of the paintings. The walls are beautifully painted with art that is symbolic of the time...More

It is still somehow unbelievable for me how this church ended up in the middle of what is the busiest shopping street in Athens. A pity, as the little church is really something special...

Several places in Athens some smaller structures are still standing in the middle of the road, just beside newer buildings. To walk around and look at those are truly amazing.

This Orthodox Church is near by the Flea Market. Since I was in the neighborhood I visited the church. It is a small church and fairly quickly visited inside out. However, it is really beautiful and certainly worth a visit.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains

Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to

traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
