This area has lots of smaller shops and restaurants. It is close to a subway entrance. The area can be sketchy at night so plan a day time visit.

underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
