I agree! The best place to shop in Athens is Monastiraki. It’s a bit more touristy, but I love the charm and architecture of the streets. You can also find a ton of artwork, jewerly, cafes and a bunch of other stores to keep you occupied on your shopping day. Ermou is the main shopping street, and it leads to Monastiraki. That’s where most of the expensive stores are, and they’re worth checking out even if they’re not in your budget!
Athinas street is a bit more casual, but still has some of the best shopping. It’s more affordable and will have some more authentic fashion choices, not like any chain stores you’ll find all around Europe.
I love the restaurants in Athens - they're just so amazing. The chefs in the city do a great job giving a variety of foods from Greek cuisine, from the old to the new. I found this link with a nice list of nine restaurants that I plan to try. What do you guys thing? Have you been to any of these?
I am so fascinated by Ancient Greek history and from what I understand, some of the ancient theaters are still intact and performances are being held there. I've been research Epidavros and noticed that they hold performances there in the summer. Has anyone been? What was it like?
I've seen footage online of people marveling at the amazing acoustics, and I want to experience this for myself.
