The area around the square, as well as the square itself, is hopping. There is plenty to see and do and eat. Take a walk through and check it out.

Monastiraki Square is a busy area with a train station, many street vendors, and many streets branching out to restaurants, shops, ice cream/ gelato stores. Ver nice and central place to stay near and have everything you need.

This is an edgier, colorful neighborhood at the center of which is the is the Monasteraki train station and square. During the day there's a market outside and at night it's a meeting place for young people. Around it are small pedestrian alleys with souvenir shops and flea market. You can also find many tiny streets filled with great graffiti and some more questionable characters, so watch out for you bag and wallets in there. At night the place is buzzing with people and there are lots of bars where young people come to party.

In sight of the acropolis site in the square and watch the world go by before walking to the close by the central Plaka. Litterally 5 minutes away you find tiny square bustling with art life and tiny shops to browse at leisure in shade.

It's a different area to the centre and Plaka - as well as wome tourist shops and restaurants there's also the Flea Market and some local traders in antiques and collectables. The more you wander around the more you see,
