Athens Shopping

Athens-ShoppingAthens is the commercial capital of Greece and therefore it has a great variety of shops dealing in all kinds of goods such as, clothes and shoes, jewellery, books, CDs, antiques, souvenirs, etc. Athens has an impressive variety of goods on offer, from top designer labels and exquisite jewellery to rugs, carpets and high quality leather goods. A large section of the city centre is now for pedestrians only, making shopping a real treat.

The major shopping areas of Athens are gathered around Omonia and Syntagma Squares, making them easily accessible to tourists. Ermou Street is probably the busiest of them all filled with anything your heart desires, making it a shopping lover's paradise. Literally hundreds of people shop daily on Ermou and its neighbouring streets. It has recently been paved, which further facilitates shoppers, and street performers have become a permanent feature of the area.

Shoppers can purchase traditional Greek art, jewellery, and souvenirs. After a long day of shopping, you can enjoy your lunch or a cup of coffee in nearby Plaka, Thision or Psyri.
