    The square of the opposite
    Our hostel was near Monastiraki, so we would frequently pass by this beautiful area. I spend a whole week in Athens last summer. The weather was extremely hot in the middle of July and the beaches far away, but I felt I wanted to see more of this town. In any case, our hostel was cheap, so we didn't mind staying for two or three more days. Monastiraki is the centre of ancient Athens, as there are many archaeological sites in a walking distance: the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, the Roman Agora, the Hadrian Library. Many antique shops line the streets around the square of Monastiraki and the railway station. In a word, this is the place of the opposite in Athens: expensive restaurants next to cheap kebap taverns, luxurious shop centres close to open markets, fancy street actors side by side to beggars, ancient sites close to modern constructions...

    Shop in the flea markets
    Monastiraki was my best district of Athens. Although it was usually very crowded and it could get pretty dangerous at night with so many economic immigrants that live there, in the day it was just a lovely place to have a coffee with view to the Acropolis and to shop in the flea markets. I didn't shop much from Monastiraki, but I saw some excellent antique items. I just bought a miniature of the Acropolis and a cup with the word "Athens" on it. However, I really enjoyed my walks along the narrow paths.
