Like most of the neighbourhoods in Athens, the shops and businesses here are on streets that are full of history and in buildings that form part of the city's greatest legends. Syntagma Square, also known as Constitution Square, is the epicentre of the city. A whole host of streets run off this square in all directions, including Ermou Street. This historic avenue is the most famous shopping street in Athens. Ermou Street connects Syntagma Square with the Monastiraki neighbourhood and is home to a large range of all types of shops. It is the perfect place, on the one hand, for clothes and accessories and, on the other, for presents and souvenirs from the city. If visiting Athens over Christmas, you'll see this street lined with festive lights and market stalls.
