Ermou street is a shopper’s paradise! This is a large shopping area with all the well-known retail outlets, high-end stores, boutiques, department stores and bustling markets.
The small streets which branch off the main avenue are home to smaller shops, many of which specialise in specific product ranges. Such is the attraction of these shops to their particular customer base, that Athenian residents come from all over the city to buy goods there.
Plaka and Monastiraki are well known to travellers to Athens for their large variety of tourist shops.
The centre of Athens has a full choice of venues for retail therapy!
