What's Monastiraki Like?

With a name meaning "little monastery" Monastiraki is actually Athens' premier shopping district. The heart of the area is Ermou - a boulevard lined with luxury boutiques and electronic shops, while Monastiraki also hosts a famous flea-market. This makes it a great place to shop for souvenirs, away from the tourist-oriented shopping streets in other districts. Monastiraki also hosts some of Athens' finest attractions, including the Library of Hadrian and the Church of the Pantanassa. But it is close to other attractions as well. The wonders of the Acropolis, with its statues and the soaring columns of the Parthenon are just to the south, while the fascinating National Archaeological Museum is a short bus journey or walk to the north. Head to the excellent New Acropolis Museum, climb Mount Lycabettus for unparalleled photo opportunities or dive into Agora-Athens Central Market for sumptuous street food and fresh produce.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Athens

Athenians are a hospitable bunch, and they will always be ready to make recommendations about dining and drinking. Head to the charming Plaka district to find a host of traditional tavernas, all of them buzzing with atmosphere and offering mouth-watering dishes like kleftiko (meat stew) or gyro (kebabs). Dive into the town's nightlife to experience the energy of Athens - the area around Syntagma Square is full of clubs and bars. Or take a walk through Exarchia, the student area and home to a dizzying display of street art which matches any in the world. Athenians are also huge sports lovers, so why not head to a match featuring Olympiakos (based in nearby Piraeus) or Panathanaikos? Sometimes, they also need to get away from the city - so join them by taking the short boat trip to the beautiful island of Salamis. Book now with Hotels.com to get to know this wonderful city.
