Monastiraki, Athens: 21 reviews and 27 photos


Monastiraki: If it's a bargain you are after and if you still have not decided what souvenir to take back home, don't forget to visit the Monastiraki Flea Market. Here you will find shops selling a wide selection of souvenir to suit all tastes and budgets.

The best time to visit Monastiraki is on Sunday mornings when the Flea Market is running full and before the crowd rush later in the afternoon. The Flea Market is next to the Monastiraki metro station and just off the square with the same name.

What to buy: Specialties include handicrafts, gold and silver jewelry, flokati rugs of fluffy sheep wool, pottery, onyx, marble, alabaster, leathergoods, furs, art items, and local culinary delights.
