A day out shopping in Athens

Athens is the Greek capital and it has been the center of history over the centuries. The historic center is one of the major attractions for travelers coming from all over the world. Getting to admire the Parthenon and watching the city from above is quite an experience! Yet, Athens is not only famous for its historic past. It is a city filled with life, ready to welcome everyone in its arms and seduce each guest right from the start. Among the most relaxing activities throughout your stay in Athens is without a doubt shopping! Athens holds the scepter as one of the best places to shop around, thanks to the plethora of options and the great value for money. So, are you reading for shopping?
The most prominent place for you to start your shopping in Athens is Ermou Street. Located just a breath from Syntagma Square, this is the perfect location for brands at the most reasonable prices. Stroll up and down the paved street and indulge in window shopping, till you find what your heart desires. And if you get tired and need a break, choose one of the picturesque cafés across the street and enjoy a refreshing beverage or a light meal. For a whole different experience in shopping, there is of course Attica Shopping Center. In a modern setting, you may find superb bargains and enjoy coffee and lounging on the roof garden. For a genuine bazaar, though, you should turn to Monastiraki Flea Market. This is where you will get all the souvenirs you want, as well as traditional jewelry and local products, music and clothing, accessories and books. Afterwards, a stop for souvlaki is a must!

As you can see, Athens is well known not only for the past, but for contemporary living too. Enjoy the Athenian sunshine and surrender to the magic of shopping!
