Agora in antiquity meant a public place where people met to discuss and socialize. Nowadays, its meaning has been transformed into shopping. Athens boasts a wide range of shopping options, varying in type and size but maintaining the city’s unique character. At the Athens Central Market, travelers are welcomed to a journey of the senses and a gastronomic delight. Herbs, spices, cheeses, olives and other tasty Greek foods are on sale every day. And there are taverns to visit after your shopping spree there!

Ermou street is pedestrianized and arguably the most renowned shopping street in the city. It connects Syntagma square with Monastiraki and features brand name department stores, souvenir shops and local shops, restaurants and picturesque cafes. Cosmopolitans will love Kolonaki district and Voukourestiou street. There you will get the opportunity to buy posh jewelry and take a look at avant-garde fashion stores. 

Monastiraki flea market resembles bazaars from the Orient. The shops there feature literally everything you might come to think, from clothing to accessories, souvenirs and great bargains. Music lovers will find CDs and discs, rare recordings and mementos from concerts. 

Finally, shopping malls in Athens are also amazing and attract people from all over the world. Attica is located on Panepistimiou street, while others are a bit further away from the center but still accessible via the metro or train: The Mall Athens, The Athens Metro Mall and Athens Heart are famous malls with a wide collection of stores.
