Monastiraki and the Flea Market
With the city’s trendiest neighborhoods being just a stone’s throw away, Monastiraki has been locals’ favorite meeting point for decades now. The famous square is always full of life, buzzing with a cheerful and lively atmosphere. There are various kinds of charming cafes, wine bars, restaurants and taverns for all tastes as long as plenty of souvenir shops. The Monastiraki Flea Market is located in Monastiraki Square near the subway station. It is open every day but Sunday is the day it gets especially crowded with bargain hunters and the bric-a-brac explodes out onto the pavements. It is an open-air market that sells valuable antiques, unique souvenirs and all manner of goods at all price levels. This is a great place to experience the true colors of the local life and culture!
