Athens: Shopping Holiday

The Ancient Capital of Greece

Athens Shopping Holiday

Athens is renowned for its fantastic shopping, and whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here. You can start your shopping holiday in Athens in the Kolonaki district, with its upmarket art and antiques stores and designer boutiques, or head to the pedestrian Ermou street, which is crammed with high street fashion stores. The big department stores can be found on Stadiou street, between Syntagma and Omonia. If you’re looking for something more local on your shopping holiday in Athens, then the Monastiraki Flea Market is the place to go, which sells all kinds of antiques, collectibles and bric-a-brac. You could also try the Sunday Flea Market on Ermou, nut get there early as it’s all over by 2pm. For souvenirs, head to Plaka, which has countless outlets selling everything from cheap t-shirts and ornaments to museum-quality copies of ancient sculptures and Greek vases.
