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.
There's a cruise that you can take as a day trip from Piraeus while staying in the Athens area - it goes to Hydra, Aegina, and Poros. Does anyone know what I am talking about? I know some people who did it and loved it, and I want to do it, too. I want to be able to book it in advance. I can't find anything about the cruise unfortunately! Does anyone know about it and can steer me in the right direction?
I am flying into Athens soon. I know I want to visit the Temple of Poseidon. In looking into the area, though, it seems like there's a lot more to do than I thought. For example, I saw pics and there's a nice resort in the area...
Should I maybe consider staying in this area? Is there enough to do?
