The part of Ermou Street close to Syntagma is a pedestrian shopping area. A church is worth seeing: the Panaghia Kapnikaréa Church is a unique Byzantine-style architecture (11th century).

Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
