I don't think this is one of the top attractions of the city, it is just a normal street with shops and nothing more. Not far from the center or Plaka, however if you have time... read more

Near the metro this is another Interesting street with lots of graffiti in a residential section we wandered through in Athens. Always be aware of your surroundings.

I don't think this is one of the top attractions of the city, it is just a normal street with shops and nothing more. Not far from the center or Plaka, however if you have time available I would advise you not to come here and concentrate precious time to visit other places much more beautiful here in Athens.

Whenever we go to Athens we stay at the Attalos Hotel on Athinas Street . . . one of the best locations to be in Athens. A short walk from the Monistiraki Metro Station & Square, the Acropolis, the Plaka, the Central Markets (Fish, Meat, Produce) it's lined with shops for the "everyman" in all of us. We have been...

I took the subway to go to the ferry, very early in the morning. I witnessed someone being mugged. 5 guys went inside the subway and jumped on the tourist. At the next stop they where out. When arrived at the final stop to the Ferry, the person who sells ferry tickets told me that the past few weeks it... More

It's just a street and not a beautiful one... I pass it on a regular basis since it's in the center of Athens, but I wonder why it's even up for review

Not the safest area, one should be very cautious when walking there especially after dark. It links Omonia with Monastiraki Square. Avoid the side streets!

First, the name of the attraction in your guide should be corrected. This is Athina's street (prounounced differently from the name of the city of Athens), the street starting from the Acropolis (the place of goddess Athina's temple) and leading to the west part of the city centre.
