Feeling you're walking under the Acropolis, next to this inspiring monument, yet wanting to buy all this goodies, taste all the food, wear all these clothes and jewellery :) A true touristic street like no other!

The street that always pass by when I am visiting Athens. This is the area that I like to walk and enjoy the beauties of Athens. We walk from Acropolis to Monastiraki via Plaka and then we pass Andrianou street in order to go to Thisio. From the one side of the street you can see the ancient monuments and... More

This street serves mainly as a feeding and souvenir shopping area. Plenty of both along the way with many locals insisting to come inside to sample their food. Most of the time, prizes are reasonable. Some places offer very nice views over Acropolis hill.

This is one of the nicest, and busiest, streets in downtown Athens. Lots of shops, nice restaurants with ancient temples across the street. We loved walking up and down this street at night and during the day and we tried most of the restaurants and coffee shops here. According to us the nicest restaurant is the one at the very... More

After visiting the Acropolis, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Hadrian's Arch, we walked down to the Plaka-Adrianou St. and had a great time exploring the shops. You can get some great deals on silver jewelry-even in the souvenir shops. Good deals on coral, turquoise and opal jewelry, too. There are leather goods shops, jewelry stores, clothing, restaurants, bakeries, just... More

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
