After having a poor lunch in one of the restaurants we decided to buy our own food and walked to the central market for that. Amazing fruit, produce, meat, fish, spices for very low prices. I wish my home town had anything even remotely comparable.

We always visit fresh markets wherever we go and can. This one in Athena is just amazing, especially the fish area. I did not like the meat part very much as you could see the bare heads of lambs, sheeps on display. The fish part...More

The central market is a great place to experience a true spirit of the city. And this one is among the liveliest and most colorful markets I have visited so far. Of course, there are many smells and sights that are not for everybody’s taste,...More

most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
