Busy busy square

You will be lucky durimg the day to walk from one end to the other without changing your path multiple times. A bit too hectic for me.

A lively neighbourhood in the center of Athens. Here you could find fancy shops,restaurants and cafes..... you could see real Athens (not the touristic one)... Many bars for the famous Greek night life

Kolonaki is one of the biggest tourist spots in Athens, filled with restaurants, shops, street vendors and accessible by train, bus and car. A great place to buy souvenirs or find a gift for that special someone, vendors and shops are open to a little haggling.

A good location for shopping; you can find lots of shops for local and international brands. However, based on reviews I read it was less than expectation

I've been here several times in the last 25 years. Unfortunately this last visit was disappointing. This used to be a nice and exclusive area. It may still be, however, the uncollected trash in the sidewalks (perhaps from workers on strike?) and the graffitti on just about everything was hard not to notice. If you're touring the area in a... More

Its not any major attraction other than a simple square with coffee shops and some expensive stores. Not of interest to any tourist/visitor. As a local I dont recommend to waste time visiting this small square.. its rather a meeting point for local with no special interest

The elegant suburb of Kolonaki in the centre of Athens is the preferred meeting place of Athenian bon viveurs, artists, intellectuals, celebrities and politicians, as it remains an animated source of culture and lifestyle. Extending from Syntagma Square and Vasilissis Sofias Avenue to the foot of Lycabettus Hill, it is located in a privileged section of the city. It took... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
