"Monastiraki" Monastiraki Tip by WillAntoniou
Monastiraki, Athens: 21 reviews and 27 photos
Monastiraki is one of the best places to shop in Athens. They have lots of diverse shops, and it's an experience all in its own. For most of the time you are under the acropolis.
It is fun just to walk through at night (which is totally safe) even if you are not planning on buying anything.
Yes, if you are a tourist people will try to rip you off, just say "too high" and start to walk out. Trust me, they will lower the price.
What to buy: There are a lot of good clothing stores, with traditional greek clothing. It's really comfortable and is great for hot weather.
What to pay: A nice pair of cotton greek pants (Manos Bratsis), should be about 12 euro, anything much more than that is expensive, and you could probably find it cheaper somewhere else.
Directions: Near Plaka and Syntagma
Theme: Local Craft
